Dark spots on my face Can I use lemon directly on my face?
Hello, I am a 16 years old female. Last week I had a pimple but now I have dark spots on my face. I heard that lemon helps in getting rid of dark spots. Can I use it directly on my face or it will cause some reaction?
@anjali-0 Hello, I do not recommend rubbing lemon on your face or to keep it overnight. However, make sure you take care of the following key to avoid the side effects of using lemon on the face:
- Always do a patch test by applying lemon on a small part of the facial skin.
- Always dilute lemon juice with plain or rose water., if your skin is sensitive.
- Never expose the skin to the bright sun after applying lemon on it.
- Always use fresh lemon juice because the concentration of vitamin C in lemon reduces with time.
