Lemon and limes have lots of wellbeing benefits. While they contain a ton of Vitamin C when consumed, they can also have positive effects on our skin and hair. Plus, the smell of these citrus fruits can help calm anxiety and depression. With summertime right around the corner, now is the perfect time to incorporate lemon or lime beauty products into your wellness routine. —Jennifer Cox
