How to Use a Lemon to Lighten Your Skin

On clean skin, apply the lemon juice mixture to a test area on your neck first and rinse. If okay, then apply it to your entire face or just on dark spots. You can wash your face over the sink with the lemon mix as well.

Rinse off completely with water. For better results, you can repeat this treatment regularly every day or week.


  • Always dilute the lemon juice, and test it on a small area of your skin first in case of allergic reactions. To lessen the harshness of the lemon, you can mix in water along with aloe and/or honey.
