It does sound odd i am sure , my friend thought i was odd using it, he prefer steroids to get rid of his psoriasis,though he looks like he has nothing,Lemon didnt make much difference to me though, does it depend on how bad the skin is?I will try it again when winter comes with the lemon and see if any change as thats my worst time though i dont get it bad but, its a nuisance for sure ,well if it improves you then anything is worth ago i think, Glad its helping you Michelle, i really am and good luck getting back to work :)

Thanks so much Sarah, Leonie, Chris & John ❀😊
I'm not sure about the severity John. I did first try it when my skin was in rough shape and its went down ever since. I now only use it a few times a week as my skin is mainly clear other than discoloration and a few wee spots. Any sign of redness I break out the Lemon πŸ˜€πŸ‹β€ lol

I see Michelle, maybe i was overdoing it with the lemon you think?i was doing it twice a day , :)

Michelle
Michelle @mishlyn

Thats a possibility John, I'm not too sure. I did it 2x a day at first too & gradually reduced it while it got better. I did take a break for a day or 2 in the beginning as well. Such a mystery, This skin of ours!!

Good morning Michelle, that’s great news. This groups great. I started on the lemons and the results where amazing. I told my doctor and he said he hadn’t heard of this. Do you put it on all the time??? Or just in morning and at night??? Why dose it work??? My friend had bites and told her to put the lemons on and the redness just disappeared. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ


Leonie Mateer
Leonie Mateer @leoniemateer

Lemons, Limes and Grapefruit turn alkaline in your body.. I always found it strange that these fruits which seem so acidic are actually great psoriasis buffers!!

Thats why i have Lime in my lager , it does help :)

Thank you so much all! ❀😊
Steven, I am really happy it is working for you too! Brilliant!


Ruben
Ruben @ruben

Hey Steven, first thing in the morning before showering. Than have breakfast and leave it on to dry


Rita
Rita @rita

Ruben, do you mean after showering?


Ruben
Ruben @ruben

Hey Rita, no, wake up, apply lemon, make and eat breakfast, then shower :)


Millionways
Millionways @millionways

I put on a lotion twice a dat that contains lemon. I leave it on to get in my skin.


Rita
Rita @rita

Ruben, I’ve been doing the opposite. Showering and then applying lemon. If you shower not so long after you use the lemon it won’t be on your skin long. Although walking around with lemon pulp on your skin is not so great!


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

True Rita. Shower then apply as it can stay on longer but maybe it works like Ruben's as well. Drink it just to stay safe. lol


Ruben
Ruben @ruben

I start my mornings by squeezing an lemon and a lime, drink that with lukewarm water and a good gulp of olive oil. Turn the lemonskin inside out and rub it over my patches :)
Normally it gets about half an hour to 45 minutes to soak in. Maybe I should apply in the evening when it has more time to work... Could get even better results.


Steven
Steven @scooby

Thanks guys for all your reply’s will put it on as much as I can. It’s great πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ


Susan
Susan @godcares

Good new Michelle. You are very blessed!


Michelle
Michelle @mishlyn

I do the same as Rita and let it stay on through out the day. Let us know how putting it on at night helps Ruben!


Ruben
Ruben @ruben

I'll try this weekend and end of next week (have some days off then which will make this experiment easier)


Ellen
Ellen @ellen4
