This mask will be great for refining the pores, purifying the skin and making it look more luminous and without spots. In addition, sugar will act as a powerful exfoliant removing impurities and dead skin cells.

Opt for organic brown sugar instead of white, as it is more natural.

Mode of preparation and use

Two medium spoons of lemon juice (better freshly squeezed) are mixed with a cup of sugar. If it is very thick you can dilute with a few drops of oil.

Apply all over the skin massaging gently. Remove with plenty of warm water after about 5 minutes.

Mode of preparation and use

In a large cup squeeze a whole lemon (it can even be two if they are small) and add the contents of half a jar of honey. After removing the preparation apply with a spatula all over the body trying not to stain the floor. Leave half an hour and then clean well.

Some recommend pouring some water into the mixture if you want to get a duller blonde tone.

Mode of preparation and use

Buy a chamomile-based preparation at the pharmacy. Pour the liquid into a bowl and mix with the juice of half a lemon. Apply to your hair and put on a shower cap. After half an hour she lightens and dries the hair. Do the treatment on clean and washed hair.

It is not recommended to use this remedy if you then plan to go sunbathing as you run the risk of burning your hair more than necessary.
