Limes are powerhouses of vitamins and nutrients and can help improve the health of your skin when applied topically. Limes help . . .
Close Pores: Lime oil has astringent properties when applied topically. It will help tighten pores and balance oil production for a clearer, brighter complexion.
Exfoliate: Like other citrus fruits, limes contain citric acid. When applied externally, the acids scrub away dead cells allowing healthy skin to shine through and help reduce flare-ups of acne and blemishes.
- Decrease Bacteria: Limes have natural antibiotic properties. When dirt, oil, and dead skin cells clog your pores, bacteria can cause inflammation, acne, redness, and soreness. A lime soap may help keep acne-causing bacterial growth at bay.
