Has anyone tried lemon juice to lighten skin?

Did it work for you? And if so, about how long did you use it before you seen results. Did you use just plain lemon juice or did you mix it with something else?

  • I tried it on my elbows. I used a halved lemon. Didn't see much lightening,but my skin sure was fresh! Seriously though,it can cause drying and irritation. Try doing it once a day for a week.

  • I didnt use it for me skin, but I've used it for my hair. I just put it on twice. And spent the day in the sun, it worked.

    I have some sun damage and have some lightening cream (pre-scription) but then I cant go into the sun... so I just deal with the damage look.
