    Citrus aurantifolia also known as Lime is not a fruit everyone likes because of its sour taste but we would be exposing the benefits of lime juice to our skin.
    All over the world, lime is widely used to make jams, pickles, sorbets, snacks, candies, confectioneries, cocktails and other beverages.
     Apart from consumption, the oil extracted from lime peel is used as an ingredient in skin and hair care products like toothpastes, beauty soaps, deodorants, hair oils, body oils, disinfectants and mouth washes. Apparently, there are many benefits of lime, some of which I would include in this  article.
      First and foremost, lime juice is considered as a natural bleaching agent due to its skin lightening properties. It can be used to lighten dark spots. All you need to do is apply it with a cotton ball to the darkened portions of your skin and leave it for 30 minutes. However, ensure that you stay indoors and avoid direct exposure to sunlight this remedy can make your skin sensitive to sunlight. Also, it is advisable to apply sunscreen before going out. You can also use this remedy to lighten dark underarms.
     In addition to what has been said earlier in the previous paragraph, the antibiotic properties of lime juice inhibit the growth of the acne causing bacteria. To keep acne and pimples at bay, you can prepare a face pack of lime juice with honey. While honey possesses antibacterial properties that prevent the growth of bacteria, the acidic nature of lime juice will control excess oil. This face pack should be used every week as part of your skincare regimen. The scars left by pimples can be lightened by massaging some fresh lime juice on them.
      Also, lime helps rejuvenate your skin and protects it from infections, thanks to its antioxidant, disinfectant and antibiotic properties. The presence of a large amount of Vitamin C and flavonoids in lime juice helps reduce the body odor and sweat. For this purpose, you can mix some lime juice in your bath water to get a rejuvenating bath experience. When applied externally on your skin, it helps treat bruises and rashes.
    Lime juice is  also beneficial in the promotion of hair growth. It has been used to treat baldness, hair thinning and hair loss problems for ages now. The main nutrient that promotes hair growth is Vitamin C, that is present in limes in large amounts. The addition of lime juice to various oils and its application promotes hair growth.
     Finally, as stated earlier, lime juice possesses natural lightening properties. If you want your hair color to be lightened without the use of chemicals, lime juice is a great option. All you need to do is apply lime juice on your hair and sit in the sun for an hour or expose your hair to sunlight. Then, rinse your hair. This procedure will make your hair 2-3 shades lighter in color.
