Limes are usually avoided because of their sour flavour and acidic taste but the almost-bitter fruit does wonder on the skin and to the body.
The use of lime on the skin does not exclude any type of skin, not even sensitive and acne-prone skin because it generally works for all skin types to treat acne and clear dark spots.
Lime when mixed with sugar can also be used as an exfoliator in place of expensive chemical-based exfoliators.
Drinking of lime juice also aids weight loss instead of exercising rigorously.
Limes are sour but golden. Do not underestimate the wonders of a common lime.
