Skin benefits of lemon juice:

 Lemons contain a high content of vitamin C.
 Applying lemon juice directly to skin may help diminish brown spots,
tighten pores and reduce blackheads and wrinkles over time.

Fats and proteins found in milk — particularly whole milk — may
help hydrate the skin, calm a sunburn and relieve itchiness.

 Honey contains natural antibacterial properties.
Suitable to use for almost all skin types.
Honey is loaded with antioxidants.
Honey is a humectant, meaning it attracts and retains moisture.

When applied to skin, vitamin C can protect against sun damage, pollutants and other
environmental hazards.
Vitamin C helps stimulate collagen production to tighten skin and diminish wrinkles.
