Many of "us" are always looking for DIY or home remedies to keep the skin moisturized, make the hair shine and even make our teeth whiter!  

For only "two for $1.00...." this magical fruit may help!

Thanks to Women's Health, here are some helpful lemony hints:

Brighten our skin:  Mix a few drops of coconut water with a few drops of lemon juice, don't drink it....rub it!

Elbow and knee bleacher: Take a lemon and rub these spots to lighten, just use a half of a lemon.

Cleansing wipes:  Mix a couple drops of lemon and tea tree essential oil in about 6 ounces of distilled water and use a cotton to wipe on your skin.

Teeth whitener:  A-haaa....we all want whiter teeth, so mix baking soda and lemon juice, and apply it to your teeth with a clean Q-tip.  But you have to scrub it off and rinse.

 

Nail strengthener:   Have you been getting too many gel manicures, yikes....I have!  Make a mixture of your favorite cooking oil (try olive oil) with lemon juice, and soak your nails. 

 

Hair Lightener:  And we all like lighter hair in the summer, actually cuts the cost on the visits to the salon...use a little bit of lemon juice with your conditioner during the "shiny" months and you'll definitely see a brighter you!
