‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade’. Agreed, but we’re going to leave that bit to Beyoncé (we love you Queen Bee) and rephrase that for you just a little. When life gives you lemons, you add it to your skin routine. Has a ring to it, right? Well, we’re positive that you’re not going to regret this if you haven’t caught the lemon fever just as yet. From antiseptic properties to maintaining the pH balance of your skin, here’s why this citrus powerhouse is still reigning as THE most popular ingredient on the beauty front. That said, here’s Nykaa’s Edit of the our favorite lemon infused beauty products.
Besides our girl Jhanvi Kapoor going absolutely gaga over this delectable macaron inspired range, it’s safe to say that these balms have recently been upgraded to an industry favorite. Coming to the flavor, it’s got lemon this season. Infused with Shea Butter, Vitamin C and Lemon extracts, this refreshing Nykaa Lip Crush Macaron Lip Balm - Lemon
restores moisture balance, protects your lips from the sun and the packaging is EVERYTHING. They literally look like macarons. Oh, and don't leave one of these in your kitchen. That oblivious family member WILL try to eat it.
The Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser - Mashobra Honey, Lemon & Rosewater
is hands down one of the most hardworking cleansers that you'll ever come across. A descendant from one of India skincare giants, this luxurious facial cleanser formula has a rich and dense texture that promises to sanitize your skin and seamlessly eliminate stubborn dirt and grime (including mascara gunk). This formula is a beautiful harmony of organic Lemon Oil, Raw Honey and Rosewater. You see why it’s made it to the hot list?
While you may not have time to set positive intentions every morning, we did some scrubbing and narrowed down to a bath bar that oozes happy energy every time you hop in the shower. Enter Khadi Natural Lemon Soap.
Universally declared as one of the most appreciated ingredients, the power of lemon oil in this block is designed to cleanse, tone and nourish without stripping the natural oils from your skin. And hey, if you're the sort who likes to extend the TLC after your shower, we’re throwing in the Nykaa Matte Nail Enamel - Lemonade Fizz
just in case you feel like painting your nails after. You’re welcome.
What we really like about the Fabindia Lemon Restoring & Softening Hand Cream
is that it can turn around tired hands and give them a beautiful and healthy instant lift. Thanks to an alluring concoction of Lemon, Vitamin E and rich essential oils, this hand cream not only moisturizes your hands but also removes tan. So, for those who tirelessly travel in the sun every day to work, you might want to get your hands on this tube ASAP. Also, it has a non-oily base which gets absorbed easily into the skin making it perfect for summer.
What was that? Peel-off masks are burning a hole in your budget? Well, then you’ve obviously not tried the The Body Care Lemon Peel Off Mask.
For less than the price of a fancy latte, this 100% vegan and paraben free mask is made with a plush dose of Vitamin C, tailor-made to clean pores and promote skin renewal and reveals a healthy complexion. Your exhausted skin and your wallet will thank you. We suggest you add this hardworking mask to your skin routine before you the weekend in the name of radiant skin (and a new profile photo). Wink!
