Why lemon, avocado and honey are great for your skin
Lemon has incredible clarifying properties and is a natural astringent. Furthermore, it has a high dose of citric acid. This gives it the power to whiten and brighten your complexion. Also, it clears the under-eye bags and pesky dark spots!
Avocado is filled with vitamins and antioxidants that feed your skin. Also, it has healthy fats, which keep your skin looking smooth and plump. As well as, plenty of vitamin E, which is super-moisturising.
Honey also has super brightening properties and is very hydrating. More importantly, it’s naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial. This makes it fantastic for treating skin infections and irritations.
