Step 1

Strain 2 oz. of juice from fresh lemons. You can help loosen the juice by rolling the lemon on a counter before you cut it, or you can put it in the microwave for just a few seconds. Do not put it in the microwave for too long, as you want the juice in it to be released but not start cooking.

Step 2

Pour the 2 oz. of lemon juice in a clean container. Add 1 oz. of light or medium rum, then add the 1 tsp. glycerin.

Step 3

Shake all the ingredients together until they are mixed well. Apply the lotion to the spots you wish to lighten. You may need to use the lotion regularly for a month or so before seeing results. Refrigerate when not in use.
