I was inspired to do this post by two things. I got this Lime-ish colored top at the vintage store. I also read a great piece on Lemon Peels on Julian Lennon's facebook page. I've been eating allot of fruit this summer. Its been hot here in the Northeastern United States. With so many great local fruits in abundance its hard to pass them by. Though we have to our friendly neighbors from the sunshine state too send us lemons and limes. With the numerous health benefits to these fruits you also know they can make you beautiful.
I got this one from the Doctor's show it really works. Though be warned your going to want a tall glass of lime aid when your done.
Limes are chock full of antioxidants, which help fend off cancer, and the acid in lime juice can help brighten your skin! Use once a week to maintain a healthy glow.
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
A pinch of sea salt
Combine ingredients in a bowl, apply to face and let sit for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water – and voila – your face will be exfoliated, moisturized and brightened all at once!

Lemon Facial Cleanser
I got this recipe from the Dr Oz show ( thank goodness for DVR ) he really has the best DIY home beauty on his show. I tried this one out too , he is right you must use it right away. I used it this morning on this hot day it was refreshing. I bought my lemon essential oil at my local health food store.
