Lemon, the holy grail of the detox process, can do more damage to your skin than good. And while a lot of people never go through the side effects of it, it is worth considering that lemon can work horribly for some people.
And so, here are some of the visible side effects of applying lemon juice on your face:
#1 Skin irritation
Skin irritation can appear as the most common side effect of using fruity acids. Owing to their extreme acidity, they can irritate your skin pretty quickly. Some of the facets of skin irritation can be redness, dryness, and peeling of your skin.
Phytophotodermatitis is a reaction to citrus fruits and root veggies such as parsley, celery, and carrot plants. Having citrus substances on your skin can expose it to UV rays and cause an inflammatory reaction such as swelling, blistering and redness.
Leukoderma, also known as vitiligo, can cause your skin to get lightened. The persistent loss of color is caused by exposure to acid consistently.
Citrus fruits can categorically increase the chances of sunburn. It is advised to never apply lemon before heading in direct sunlight.
Take care with that acid, girl.
Toodles for now.
