But are you aware of the countless other things the juicy yellow fruit is just dying to do, if only you’d give it a chance?

Read on to know all the many ways that the lemon can benefit you. Here are 5 simple lemon face packs that you can whip up any day.

#1 For acne

Pimples? No problem. This lemon face pack for pimples will take your troubles head on and banish them pesky zits for good.


  • One egg
  • Freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • Few drops of rose water


  1. Carefully separate the egg white from the yolk
  2. Add one tablespoon of lemon juice and the rose water to the white
  • Apply the mix to your face and let it sit for 15 minutes
  1. Rinse it out with cold water and pat dry

#2 For sensitive skin

Creams and lotions don’t agree with your skin? How do you take care of it then? Try this lemon face mask to pamper your skin regularly.

You need:

  • Unflavoured curd
  • Freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • A few drops of rose water
  • 2-3 drops of sandalwood oil

What you need to do:

  1. In a bowl place 2 tablespoons of curd
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, rose water and sandalwood oil to form a paste
  • Apply this to your face and let it work its magic
  1. Wash your face with cold water after 15 minutes

#3 For oily skin

Shiny skin, slick with oil – I was like that in college. And then I discovered multani mitti (Fuller’s earth). When you make a lemon face pack with multani mitti you are showering your skin with love. Try it.
