Dr Oz spoke about the power of lemons in a segment called “Dr Oz: Ingredient Fix: Lemons.” Doctor Oz’s helper already knew that lemon is great for your digestion and is a good facial cleanser too. Lemons are of course acidic, which is why it burns so badly if you get lemon juice in your eye. Ayurveda or Ancient Indian Medicine Remedies found that the acidity in lemons has anti-bacterial properties. Plus, the vitamin C found in lemons could help to fight off H Pylori, which can cause ulcers in your gut.

In addition, the acidity of a lemon when combined with the lactic acid found in milk and the alcohol found in brandy work wonders as a face mask – hence Dr Oz’s Lemon Brandy Fask Mask Recipe, which exfoliates your skin, brightens your face, reduces wrinkles and is like a natural form of a chemical peel.
Dr Oz: Why Are Lemons Good For Skin?
Dr Oz did a demonstration to show how when you mix very basic things such as soap or baking soda with lemon juice (an acid), it bubbles and balances things out. Since you probably wash your face with soap, your skin will tend to respond nicely to a little bit acidity. Plus, lemons are great for other parts of your body – like your stomach.
