I seen a family friend today she is in her 50's and her skin is BEAUTIFUL like a baby face, no dark spots, perfect even tone, no wrinkes, and she SMOKES! So I asked her what kind of face cream she used bc her face looks better than mine ( im only 25 lol) she said she gets herbal green tea bags boils the water and steams her face then pats it dry and rubs lemon juice on her face.... I'm going to try bc i use pretty expensive face cream and it don't do anything ..she said she use to use expensive cream but stopped and is going all natural... it is working wonders for her bc i have not seen her in a year and was so shocked at how much better she looked... I'm def gonna save some money with my new face treatment lol I'll let you all know if it works for me!

You should take a photo before u start doing it and then after maybe two weeks or a month to see if it makes a difference

i have switched to using my own treatments and it has helped my skin alot. I have eczema and combination skin and it looks a lot better. Taking vitamins and flax oil helps too. Much more than the expensive creams.

That seems like a lot of work to do every night but that's awesome! :) Good luck! I do hope it works well. I just make my own face creams too but I have to spend one day making it then make it easy the rest of the time. I don't think I'd have the patience to boil something everynight to put on my face. LOL! I guess I'm just lazy. :)

Oh!! Where in South Carolina? Born and reared South Carolinian here. I'm in Aiken. :)

I didn't even think about the lemon burning. Did the lady say if it gets better over time? I sure hope so. Good luck with that one! Could you dilute it with witch hazel or something like that?
