Citrus fixes

The citrus in your kitchen is your quick beauty fix. Here are three ways you can use lemon to banish ugly, annoying problems.

Citrus fixesStained nails

Using rich colors such as red or blue on your nails can leave ugly yellowing. Get rid of the staining by rubbing a lemon wedge over your bare nails a few times.

Red wine lips

We all have had it happen: A fun night leaves your lips stained by the red wine you drank. When still at the bar, simply ask the waiter for lemon wedges and discreetly rub on your lips. Wine stains will disappear, and gloss can be reapplied.


Save a bundle on those nose strips and simply use a lemon to banish those ugly blackheads. Before bed, apply lemon juice to them and leave on overnight. In the morning, rinse your face with cold water; repeat each night until blackheads disappear.
