When you think of limes, you probably think of tropical drinks or lemon-lime soda. But this popular citrus fruit is actually very beneficial for your skin.

If you have any dark spots on your skin that you’d like to brighten, then invest in some limes and cotton balls. Simply take a bit of lime juice, dip a cotton ball in it, and apply it to the affected area for about a half an hour.

This same technique can help fade scars and pimple markings, thanks to its natural bleaching agent. And if you suffer from loose skin, then good news: it helps with that, too!

In addition to all the above, lime juice is also full of antibiotic properties that help inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria.

You don’t have to lime juice directly to the skin to reap its benefits, though.

Your skin can still get a glow from it by drinking the following concoction: the juice of one lime, a tablespoon of honey, and eight ounces of lukewarm water mixed together, every morning. The natural bleaching properties will help give your skin an overall glow.

Consider using lime peel as a scrub, too. There are plenty of easy, at-home recipes that call for just a few easy to find ingredients, plus lime peel, which will save you from applying chemicals found in commercially made face scrubs. Natural skincare, for the win!
