Does Lemon Cause Facial Hair Growth?
There is no scientific evidence that lemon causes facial hair growth. If the gene is the reason behind not growing facial hair, it can’t help you.
On the other hand, if your hair is not growing due to dead pore cells. You can use these techniques to get a positive result.
Benefits of lemon
#1. Unclog Pores
Lemon contains citric acid that can unclog pores by removing dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria.
Your pores get blocked when there is excess production of sebum oil. Not only that, dirt and the use of facial products like moisturizers and oils also clog the pores.
If you don’t cleanse your pores often, you will have break-outs, and you will also notice patchy beard.
#2. Remove beardruff
The citric acid and antimicrobial property of lemon tackles with beardruff along with the fungal infection that causes flaky skin.
#3. Balances PH of your skin
Skin is more critical than your beard. If your skin is healthy, your beard will be healthy. Lemon rebalances the PH of your skin.
#4. Seals cuticles
Lemon seals the hair cuticles and shines your beard. Moreover, your beard will be more manageable.
#5. Promotes beard growth
Over time, when you use facial products, the layer of build-up product, is created in your skin. Due to this, the potential growth of your beard suffocates.
But lemon totally removes all the build-up products and promotes beard growth.
Side effects of lemon
#1. If you have any cuts or brushes, citric acid can cause irritation. Thus, I suggest you not to use lemon in that area.
#2. If you use lemon frequently in your face, it can dry up your face and hair. Thus, I suggest you use it in once a month or in once a quarter.
Finally, you can apply lemon on your beard along with cinnamon and some other essential oils. It will definitely help you to provide a shiny beard.
