I found the first few days using them grand was leaving me itchy and removing flakes.. but yesterday and today I found I’m more flaky.. maybe this is meant to happy not sure

I think the lemons have a positive effect on my skin. I don’t apply it every day because it’s summer and I’m getting a lot of sun on my skin but I even like that burning feeling when I use it on my scalp.

I squeeze lemon and have it with overnight warm water and put the skin in my morning smoothie!!!!!

Lemons? Is this like the turmeric ? Do I eat it (hope not, cant stand the things) or take myself off and get personal with a lemon? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Cut fresh lemon, squeeze on the skin and rub it in job done :) not on sores though :)

Lemon has been working beautifully for me too! I don't use it everyday at the moment. Lots of sun like Rita & my skin is doing quite well. Any sign of redness or flaking.. I break out the lemon!

It also healed a deep crack on my knuckle. I was really hesitant to apply lemon to It, but it was becoming quite sore. It was healed in 4 days 😊

As I am out in the sun everyday, my ps is very calm 😁 I will have to wait for the grey skies to get personal with the lemon πŸ˜‰

I was so excited at the prospect of a natural cure, I was rubbing lemon on 5 or 6 times a day. That's too much! It kinda worked a little, but then my skin had a big flare. I realised the only thing was to get to some sun and sea (it's winter where I live), so I took myself to a Pacific island, swam 4 times a day in the sea and that helped enormously. I didn't care that people could see my red ankles and calves, I still went swimming and snorkelling.

Lemon πŸ‹ does work. I'm proof sorry if you didn't get the benefits.

Lemons may yet work for me...I haven't given up on it, I'm just taking things alot more slowly this time around!


Clint

Great it takes awhile for lemon πŸ‹ to win but it does. Just think how long psoriasis hangs around lemon πŸ‹. Slowly fights back and it will win.

I would love to see if Lemons work for me, but they bloat me when I eat them in any way.

Just rub it on your psoriasis


Mandy
Mandy @MandyLoo

I have it on my feet. Really bad. Do I just rub it on wherever it is even on cracked bleeding parts

Hello Mandy, Please dont put it on cracked bleeding parts, It will sting for a little if skin not bad, cracked and bleeding, that will be painful Thanks
