Are you worried that your skin is sagging? Is turkey neck giving you sleepless nights? If yes, then you are in good company.
Newsflash: you can now say bye bye to turkey neck and loose skin with the good old lemon juice. You read that right – LEMON JUICE! Well, lemon juice has for many years been touted the anti-aging “wonder drug.” And for an excellent reason; by unleashing vitamin C in lemon juice it can do more than boost your immunity – it can also turn back kthe clock for your skin!
The benefits of Vitamin C for your skin are three-pronged:
It Rids Your Skin of Age Spots
Age spots …ugh, right? The good thing is an excellent way to use Vitamin C on those unsightly age spots is lemon juice. Hold your horses; Can lemon juice can make age spots go poof? That’s right; the citric acid therein can help fade them leaving your skin nicely toned. As if that isn’t fabulous enough, the process is quite simple; all you do is dab a little of lemon juice onto these spots and let it stand for a few minutes. After a couple of weeks you will begin to see the fade.
It Removes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Parts of you face that tend to move most often will indeed bear a brunt from wrinkles. The science behind wrinkles is pretty simple. Beneath your outermost layer of skin is collagen, a connective tissue that keeps all the layers together. As you age, you begin to lose some collagen causing the skin to droop creating wrinkles. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in both replacement and retention of collagen.
It Tightens Your Skin
Again, vitamin C is a great collagen booster. Through the use of lemon juice you will improve your skin’s elasticity leaving it dazzling and tone.

People spend a tremendous amount of money for cosmetics, surgeries to get their skin tighter and looking younger. Instead, try the following DIY tightening toner; it’s effective, natural, and will not break your bank.
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 cup rose water

Pour all the ingredients into a container and stir until mixed well. Soak the mixture in a soft cotton ball and dab it on your skin, making sure that you don’t miss any wrinkles. Do a bang-up job on the turkey neck. The essential oils are rich in antioxidants that help get rid of free radicals in your skin.
