Refresh your beauty regime with lime

From Key lime pie to mojitos, many foods and drinks just aren't complete without a dash of lime.

But the citrus fruit isn't just for eating, as the vitamin C and antioxidant values in lime also mean that it is a great addition to many beauty products.

Here are a few great lime-inspired products to keep you feeling refreshed while on the go.

Lip balms

There's something about the flavour of lime which is super addictive. Embracing the distinctive flavour of lime is Carmex Ultra Moisturising Lip Balm SPF 15 - Lime Twist, which not only has a great lime scent, but also features beeswax and cocoa seed butter for enhanced hydration.

Or try Lush's Key Lime Pie Lip Balm, a lime treat which contains lime and argan oil. With an uplifting scent and handy, travel-sized container, this zesty product is a beauty bag staple.

Hand cream

Lime's delicate scent has the power to instantly lift your mood, with several beauty brands now tapping into the revitalising qualities of the citrus. Hill & Noble Hand Cream in Sweet Jasmine & Lime contains notes of pretty jasmine and fresh lime, as well as shea butter, macadamia nut and coconut oil to help nourish and smooth hands. The 30ml size is perfect for popping in your purse or handbag too. Another favourite has to be L'Occitane's Shea Zesty Lime Hand Cream. This bestseller comes packaged in a vibrant green tube, and features a high concentration of shea butter, but still leaves behind a tangy scent reminiscent of lime zest.

Luxe lotions

A touch of lime is enough to boost any regular lotion to luxury status. Jo Malone's Lime Basil & Mandarin Body Crème is one of the brand's signature scents, with the addition of lime working to perfectly counter the peppery basil base. Layer on some of this rich cream, with its conditioning oils of jojoba seed, cocoa seed and sweet almond, after a relaxing bath. Or give Dr. Bronner's Organic Patchouli Lime Lotion a whirl. This moisturiser is perfect hydrating the skin after a day outdoors, with the product featuring pure organic oils - which are highly emollient, so start with a small amount and moisturise as needed.
