Get Lovely with Lemons

Last Wednesday was national lemonade day, so naturally if you had lemons on hand you knew exactly what to do. Don’t worry if life has given you more lemons today; there are so many other beauty-boosting uses for this tart citrus. Check out a couple recipes below for DIY fruity pampering from Sunkist.
