  • It might be pre-cancer, please see a doctor.

  • I would see a dermatologist, there are lightening creams that you can use. If you're pregnant (or were recently) for some women that can lead to spots or discoloration of the face - it usually goes away on its own.

  • Do they look like moles (sun spots) I have them too I hate them

    Or do they look like blotches (caused by pregnancy or get your liver checked) and yes I have heard (but not tried) lemon juice is supposed to be good to take away the browness of the face. GL

  • If it's just an age or sun spot, you can do expensive laser or you can use retin-a or some other cream that peels.

  • Use Avon's Banishing Creme. Its made for this problem. use code fsany for free shipping. Lemon juice on your face will dry it out and possibly burn it. It is way too acidic to use alone on skin :)

  • Mary Kay has a wonderful product called Even Complexion Essence. I use it and it really works. If you are interested. Check it out on my website
