Learn the health benefits of limes, including lime juice and the skin of a lime. Limes can help anything including acne, pimples, skin, hair and arthritis.

Do you love lemonade, or lime juice?  Do you know that there are other things a small lime can do to you?  Hmmm, let me think?  You use it for your marinate.  You also use it for your broth when you cook pork or fish and you want a sour broth, am I right?  But, is that all a lime can do to you?  NO! 

At night, you can apply the lime juice unto your face. Cut it into two, squeeze it, you can put a small amount of oatmeal, mix them together and apply it to your face.  You can leave it for 30 minutes then wash it, no soap just water.  You can do it alternately. It would not leave your skin dry but smoothen it.

Since limes have antibiotic properties, lime can also help with acne and pimples. The juice of a lime can help inhibit the growth of the bacteria that causes acne, and cleanses the skin of bacteria. Making a pack with lime juice and honey can be very useful with the treatment of acne and pimples. The using of honey is because honey has antibacterial properties. Since lime also contains astringent properties, limes can also tighten the skin and reduce the production of oil that also can cause acne and pimples.

Having problems with your knees? Is it darker than your skin tone? Cut a lime into two, and then rub each halves to your knees.  You can do it anytime, before taking a shower or even if you are watching TV, but do not forget to rinse it if you do not want a dry skin.  

You do not want to use shampoo on your hair everyday.  You can use the lime skin. Rub it to your hair before you take a bath.  You can do it an hour before bathe.  It will leave your hair smooth and silky. 

Another one that is amazing with this tiny little lime is you can use it to whiten your armpit. You do not have to go to a salon or derma experts or undergo skin whitening surgical processes or whatsoever.  You can do it in your own home.  Cut the lime into halves (it is understood), rub the lime unto your pit (rub it gently so it won't hurt your skin).  Leave it for 30 minutes.  Do it before taking a shower or a bath. 

In the kitchen, you can use lime as hand sanitizer or deodorizer. After cooking or after doing the dishes (if you do not have dishwasher), you can squeeze one lime.  Put it in a small bowl and wash your hands with the pure lime juice, then you can wash your hand with water (no need for a hand soap or soap bar).

Conclusion

As you can see, limes, the skin and the juice can help with many types of skin and health problems, anything from skin, hair, skin blemishes and much more.

You saved money yet you still feel good yourself.  Hope this helps a little.
