11 Everyday Beauty Uses for Lemons

6. Lighten Age Spots
Fun fact – lemon juice can help lighten aging spots or even liver spots and freckles. Who needs to go spend a ton of money on aging cream when you can just use the lemons in your house? Leave the juice on your spots for 15 minutes and then rinse the skin.

7. Teeth Whitener
Get ready to make another concoction. Take out your baking soda and pour out some lemon juice and mix them together. Take a Q-tip and apply the mixture onto your teeth. Let the mixture sit for 2 minutes and then use your toothbrush to scrub your teeth.

8. Soften Elbows and Knees
This time, take some lemon juice (a full lemon is required for this one), a few teaspoons of salt, and some olive oil. Mix it all together and you have created your own homemade body exfoliator. This works like magic! If you’ve gone spray tanning recently, this mixture can also help get rid of the orangey color of your skin.
