Lemon + Cucumber + Rosewater creates an exfoliating paste, which will be in acidic pH.
It will work the same way as Glycolic acid or Lactic acid in creams. But the only problem is every time the strength and pH of the product you use is not fixed.
This is how exfoliants work,
- Exfoliants remove dead skin (not live skin) due to which you will have glowing skin on the surface (surface is what everyone sees!)
- Also the rate at which new skin cells grow is fastened, which means that you have younger skin
Exfoliants were used since the times of Cleopatra. ( She used sour milk which is rich in Lactic Acid).
Fresh Aloevera (not the preserved one) is very rich in nutrients to the skin.
So the combinations will work to some extent. But also be sure to use a moisturiser regularly because if you use the above paste on dry skin it may sting due to highly acidic nature.
I recommend using Glycolic acid cream to remove tan and dead skincells. And any nourishing oils or gels that undo any sundamge.
SUNSCREEN SPF 15–20 and PA++
Nourishing creams/ lotions/gels that help with sundamage are
Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vit A, Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Pomegranate, Sea Buckthorn and the list goes on…
