Remember when 2012-2013 were the prime, glowing years of YouTube-motivated DIY face masks? A lot of them consisted of using lemon, but were quickly advised not to due to its possibility in being too harsh for the skin. Fast forward to now and thanks to the advanced technology of Korean beauty, we can safely receive the benefits of lemon through already-made skincare products. So besides using it in the morning for our power juices, why are lemons so good for our faces?
KEY BENEFITS TO CONSIDER:
- Brightens complexion
- Lightens hyperpigmentation & dark spots
- Cleans out dirt & bacteria
- Removes dead skin cells
All of these benefits are sooo perfect for the summertime, which is when we are rushing to get that sun-kissed, glowing and radiant skin! This is when Secret Key’s power duo comes in—the Lemon Peeling Gel and the Lemon Peeling Pad. Both contain lemon sparkling water + Vitamin C, which will not only give you a bright complexion, but it will aid in fighting aging and pollution!
The lemon peeling gel is best used when your skin is begging for some proper exfoliation—all you have to do is wash your face, pat dry with a towel and then squeeze product onto face and massage in a circular motion… And soon enough, you will notice little balls of dead skin cells forming! Massage for 2 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. Then, follow up with the rest of your skincare routine and sunscreen (if it’s during daytime).
As for the lemon peeling pad, use it during the “toner” part of your skincare routine. Cleanse with your favorite cleanser, then take the embossed side and swipe across the face—this will improve circulation and gently exfoliate. Then, turn it over to the smooth side and swipe again to rebalance everything. Then, follow up with the rest of your skincare routine and sunscreen (if it’s during daytime).
