It’s really hard to imagine a kitchen without the taste and smell of fresh limes. I personally add freshly squeezed lime into almost every dish that I make. Here are the health benefits of limes/lemons:

Skin Care:

Lemons are good for killing bacteria on skin and face. Since skin is the biggest organ in body, using lemon can help to get rid of bacteria and toxins on the skin. Mix an organic lemon with organic grapeseed oil and gently rub it all over your face and leave it for half an hour before rinsing. The rich source of flavonoids and vitamin C in limes can keep skin shiny by protecting it from bacteria and infections.
