Risks? Comments By: Lauren on 2004-07-26
I like the idea...I'm only wondering things like, will this cause me to break out? Should I wash my face right after doing this? or will that effect how the lemon juice works to reduce the appearance of freckles?
No breakouts!! Comments By: Nicole on 2004-09-03
Hi. I've been using lemon juice for my freckles, and it really works. I've only been using it for a little while, but so far I haven't had any breakouts, and already I've noticed that my skin looks much better even where there are no freckles.

It has also helped my under eye bags. If you have pale skin, lemon juice will give it a really illumonious look. I love it. It might sound like a stupid thing to do, to rub lemon juice all over your skin, but don't diss it til you try it...

Sound 2 good 2 be true Comments By: samera on 2004-10-04
Thanks 4 giving thats tip, i have so many freckles, and tried everything but do the freckles disapear when you keep using it.

I have heard lemon juice also make your skin fair and i have tried it really amazing.

Tan Comments By: Tina on 2004-10-09
Sounds like a good plan but I got some freckles from going to a tanning bed, and i was just wondering if using the lemon juice will gid rid of the tan around the freckles... that would just be conterproductive...well thanks
I don't know Comments By: Sara on 2004-10-10
Im going to try this tonight on my freckles. I don't know about the other post though, you shouldn't rub undiluted lemon juice on your face. Lemon juice is very acidy and will damage your skin in the long run. Dilute lemon juice in rose water. It won't be as harsh on your skin. For the first post, im pretty certain you don't wash it out when you dab it on your freckles.
Will it work for guys or chinese people Comments By: Leon on 2004-10-30
hey im a guy and im chinese and i was wondering if it only works for female or does it work for both genders?

TipKing says: Try it and see!

me Comments By: ivei on 2005-01-16
yes it does work on both genders hehe. when you say that lemon juice will illuminate your freckles what does that mean? and what kind of lemons juice do you use? Lemon juice in a bottle you can find in a store or an accually lemon or is there something else? TipKing says: I would think either!
OUCH! Comments By: racjel on 2005-03-03
I tried this as a teenager and it stung. I have fair and sensitive skin and I used it on my nose/cheeks and my face turned red/itchy. Didn't use it long enough to fade any freckles.
Lime Juice Comments By: Jay on 2005-03-17
Does Lime Juice work aswell??

TipKing Says: As with all of the Tips on the Tiking site a little trial and error may be needed. Lime juice may work!

How Long Comments By: Mark on 2006-03-02
How long should I keep doing this, when will i see the effects, will it get rid of my freckles altogether?

Lemon juice on freckles, but what about the sun! Comments By: Jamie on 2006-07-15
I'm a young man in my 20's who suffers with freckles on my face and arms.
There two major issues i need answering, 1. Will lemon juice permanently get rid of them, if so what about the effects of the sun, it will bring them back again!
2. Does lemon juice work on all areas of the body, because i also have some on my arms.

TipKing says: There seem to be some very promising messages about the success of this tip. You might want to just try it out and see the results yourself

What type of juices work best??? Comments By: Jamie on 2006-07-15
I was wondering what juice is proven to work best, lemon juice from an actually lemon or dilute lemon juice from a store???

TipKing says: I think the tip is calling for fresh juice from a lemon

Treatment queries. Comments By: Jamie on 2006-07-17
I have started the treatment with the lemon juice, but i was wondering tipking how long it will take until i see a difference in the appearence of my skin.

Kind regards


TipKing says: I can only go by what people have said in the comments on the page. I have not tried this tip. Sorry not to be any more help.

i have freckles across my nose and cheeks, is fresh juice from a lemon or lemon juice safe for my face? i don't breakout easily and have pretty clear skin. i was also wondering, does this permanently get rid of freckles? i have this one dark freckle i'd really like to get rid of, is that gonna take longer to fade away because it is darker then the others?
please help

iv never tried this Comments By: tery on 2007-05-14
does this really make your freckles less noticable? and if i does, does it make your face more whiter?
am i old enough Comments By: tera on 2007-06-26
i am 13 years old.do u think i am old enough to use the lemon for my skin or do u think i should wait?im scared to try it because it might make my face turn red and itchy.


TipKing says. You could try a little lemon juice on a small patch of your skin as a test. If you are in any doubt do not try it. This is just a tip and may not work for you. I have personally not tried it.

Ugh to dark freckles by nose and a bunch of nose Comments By: Amy on 2007-07-10

will it work on children? Comments By: Nafeesa A on 2007-07-10
Ive got a little brother, he's 5 years old,and has a lot of freckles all over his face. would this technique work on him?if yes when would he have 2 use the lemon juice? Please reply a.s.p thanks

TipKing says: Unless he has an allergy to lemon you should be safe to try. Then again what is wrong with freckles at age 5?

thanks for replying Comments By: Nafeesa A on 2007-07-11
The reason i asked was because my brother's freckles are 'out of control', more keep on appearing :there not in a certain area. The freckles are over his forehead, cheeks, nose, chin etc, bascially all over his face and seem kind of worrying.
Any way thanks for the tip will try it hope it works.x

Diana Stalder Comments By: milly on 2008-03-06
I have to be honest I have hated my freckles since I could remember and all my life I Have tried everything to get rid of them, about a year ago I came across a product called Diana Stalder papaya kojic soap and whitening cream on ebay , I got it because it was so cheap i WAsnt convinced it would work but how wrong I was It been a year in september and my skin is so soft and clear I am a diffrent woman know these are the results you will see whitens any part of your skin with natural ingredients
has exfoliating effect to gently eliminate skin overpigmentation like melasma, dark acne spots, freckles or age spots
evens out and brightens skin tone thus improving texture for younger looking skin.
unlike other skin bleaching kits, brightening effect is natural-looking - like a child's supple skin with a fair, rosy tint, and not artificial-looking
one thing i would say is you must wear a factor cream on your face ir you will burn and your freckles with return
also If you have very sensitive skin you should use the black soap good luck :>)

Trying Comments By: Alyssa on 2008-03-16
I'm going to try it tonight. i only have about eight on my nose and many people say it's working so I might as well.

I have an 11 yr old with a few freckles on her cheek and nose area...has anyone tried the lemon juice lately and does it really work? I just wanted to see because she's just started using proactive for her breakouts and I don't want to counter act with the lemon juice. Any tip is much appreciated! Also did you leave it on overnight or just for a few hours?

Lemon Juice Her I Come Comments By: kim on 2008-03-18
I have tons of freckles on my face. I hate them, Everyone always makes fun of me. Here is my question, Do ihave to use the lemon juice directly from a lemon or can i use it from one of those lemon juice bottles?
LISTEN UP! Comments By: Anon on 2008-03-23
Okaii you guys, I have freakles. I hate them soo much on me!..I did lots of research..and if you want your freckles to lighten up, lemon jiuce does work, however, it will attract the sun even more, and if you go in the sun you can get more freakles thaqn you already have. I'm going to laser surgery. Laser surger doesnt just work in one day. If you have freakles all over your face, you have to lasering once every month for 6 months. The cost..I have searched everywhere to find the price and no sites say! But I accually went to the guy who is doing the laser.it cost 250 dollars for everytime you go. And after you laser you have to wear sunscreen or they will come back.


Really? Comments By: greengueen on 2008-04-11
Im not sure that is true.It seems very odd for them to go away by using limon juice.I hope its true
holey Comments By: kate on 2008-04-17
kay you guys make it seem so horrible to have freckles...they arent that bad and wtf obviously lemon juuice isnt guna work thats the dumbest thing ever just live with them or something .. god
i have freckles too so you guys COULD NOT
hurt my feelings!

It works! Comments By: cory on 2008-04-23
Lemon Juice really works!!!! Here is exactly what I did. I cut half of a lemon and squeeze it onto a face pad or paper towel and wipe into my skin. I put extra on areas where there is a blemish. After around 10 minutes I mix cinnamon and soymilk(Normal milk will probably work) and apply it over the face as a mask. This will burn like hell but I am sure something is going on. I literally did this one night and by the time I woke up I had a very tiny mole looking blemish that shrinked to nothing. I think it is always better to use the lemon juice from lemons and not the bottle which contains no vitamin c at all.I honeslty believe in my hearts of heart it will work for anyone who is patient and it should not cause breakouts if anything the opposite. Hope I helped.

should i use the lemon juice bought at stores or reall lemons?

TipKing says: I always feel that the juice from fresh lemons is better

i have tanned skin with a few dark freckles on my face
and ive been using the lemon juice for about two days but i dont see any results
should i continue?
how long will it take?
please help

started Comments By: anon on 2008-07-03
i started with lemon juice a couple of days ago. i rubbed some on my face and left it for a few hours, then washed it off. ive done that 3 times now. so far i dont think theres any difference but apparently it takes a few weeks for results to show so i'll keep at it.
PLEASE ANSWER!!! Comments By: L on 2008-07-11
Could I rub lemonade on my face? I don't want my mom to know because she tells me not to because it's "abnormal" and doesn't want me to do it. So I thought i might try buying lemonade and consume it, but also apply it to my freckles when she isn't here. I won't get in trouble for doing this because she'll think I just grew out of my freckles and I've already bought some lemonade.
FRECKLES!!! Comments By: FRECKLES on 2008-07-12
hey, so i have freckles just about everywhere on my face my forehead, checks, nose, chin etc. but not on my arms or anything . Anyways .. im 12yrs old and i tried the lemon juice only 4 two days now once a day at night and it works!!! im seeing fading already! Although it does make ur skin paler you can just use a tanning losion after ur done fading freckles. Also some of you asked will this be permenant? And yes it will but only if whenever you go outside especially in the summer put loads of sunscreen on , try to stay in shade areas, and maybe wear a hat. also make sure the sunscreen is at least 15 percent. oh and i used the lemon juice straight from a bottle, put it all over my face , waited about 5 minutes or so , and washed it with soap and water. hope i helped some of you guys with freckles

Thanks xxx

i've heard that lemon juice gets rid of pigment or whatever thus getting rid of freckles. will this make my skin really pale aswell as getting rid of my freckles?

For the sake of our beauty Comments By: Susanna on 2008-07-17
Hello there. I've read a comment about an asian girl who has freckles at 13, and I was just wondering does it really effect your skin? I'm asian but I'm also mixed with white, I know you're not a skin expert. And I don't expect you to know every single detail about my face. But does adding lemon juice on your face every night promising? I also would like to know which lemon juice is better... the one from fresh lemons, or the ones in the little lemon bottles? Is there a difference? & how long do we have to leave it on? I'm going to try it for a week and see how it goes. But I've been battling with my freckles since I was 6. Some people likes it, some dont. But personally, its not really attractive in my opinion. But please, TipKing, answer all my questions, if possible.

But does adding lemon juice on your face every night promising? I also would like to know which lemon juice is better... the one from fresh lemons, or the ones in the little lemon bottles? Is there a difference? & how long do we have to leave it on? I'm going to try it for a week and see how it goes. But I've been battling with my freckles since I was 6. Some people likes it, some dont. But personally, its not really attractive in my opinion. But please, TipKing, answer all my questions, if possible.

Heyy Comments By: Rachel on 2008-08-17
Yeah wash your face and moisturise after using lemon juice as it really dries out your skin
also you can try mixing a dribble of honey with a tablespoonful of plain yoghurt or your favourite face cream :)

Sudocrem! Comments By: Tessa on 2008-09-15
If your worried about spots as well as freckles...sudocrem is actually really good with spots. It's actually nappy rash cream which is quite cringy but its amazing for your skin! I have tried it and i put it on every night and in the morning they're gone! Sudocrem can also be used for scars, burns, cuts, sores and scabs.

(By the way i think it's either spelt SUDOCREM or SUDOCREAM)

where?? Comments By: Poppy on 2008-09-16
What do you mean by lemon juice can you buy it in like a carton??

TipKing says: Lemon juice comes in plastic bottles, usually yellow. Any food store will sell it

freckles suck Comments By: anon on 2008-09-21
Where would you get this so called lemon juice
okay Comments By: sarah on 2008-09-23
look basically people are saying if you're going to try this then you need to use either lemon juice (which can be purchased almost anywhere. NOT LEMONADE) or, the better alternative, juice freshly squeezed from a lemon yourself. from the rest of the comments it seems all you need to do is put the juice onto a cloth then apply to your face, leave 15 minutes or so then thoroughly wash your face and moisturise. twice a day, morning and night, seems an appropriate amount of times to do this. also apparently lemon juice does make your skin lighter, however i doubt it will be a significant amount. the length your freckles will take to fade depends entirely on the individual and is therefore circumstancial. at the end of the day i guess it's worth a try, lemons are cheap and easy to get hold of and if it does work then bonus :)
rubbish Comments By: SFC on 2008-09-25
Lemon juice does'nt make your freckles fade I used it for about a month and nothing

Going to try Comments By: Amanda on 2008-10-06
I'm going to try this tomorrow.
I am very pale and have many freckles, i really just want to fade the ones on my legs.

I think everyone needs to give it a go, every persons skin is different, may not work for some, may be amazing for others.

Lemons are cheap- give it a go

Wondering Comments By: Katie =] on 2008-10-16
Well, i have red hair and i have a few freckles on my face and a few on my arms but thats it really. I always ask my friends if my freckles are that noticable and they all say no and they say that they're pretty but i still wear foundation and blusher to hide them. I don't want to have freckles anymore because i feel like other people find them ugly but if i ask someone if they like freckles they would obviousley say yes because they can see that i have them. I really want to like my freckles but its hard, i look at all my other friends and they don't have any freckles! Freckles aren't ugly really, they're just dots on your skin basically! Someone please reply my comment, thanks =]

lemon juice does it really work Comments By: connor on 2008-10-20
OMG!does this really work? i got loads on my face.does it work on my face?
2 questions Comments By: LT on 2008-10-23
1) will it work on dark freckles? they're the color of moles, but they're flat. just dark freckles.
2) I'm allergic to citris, though it's nothing too serious. eating them makes me feel awful but is putting them on my skin the same? I'd assume so...

Listen up little ladies Comments By: A gal with freckles on 2008-11-05
I would just like to say Im a 30 yr old that has had freckles my whole life. yes I use the lemon juice to keep them at bay(they wont disappear/forever) but to all the gorgeous young women out there, TRUST ME this will be the last thing you will worry about when your older. The guys will want you, and you will believe your beautiful. I was looking to lighten my hair some more & found this site lol :D
THEY WILL GO AWAY! Comments By: Fayeee on 2008-11-09
When I was younger I had absolutely loads of freckles and in my teens they got so much worse...I hated them BUT...being 18 now they have faded and with a bit of foundation you can't even see them. All my past boyfreinds have loved them! They're 'cute' apparently. They do go away! And lemon juice will dry out your skin so I WOULD NOT ADVISE!- YOU WILL END UP BEING WORSE OFF! TO STICK IT OUT FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS IS FAR BETTER THAN HAVING 80YR OLD SKIN WHEN YOUR 18!and for the teenagers that are writing, your too young to be worrying about freckles...you'll appreciate them when your older and it gives you something that makes you stand out from other people!

Lemon Juice and Feckles does it really work? Comments By: Amanda (SA) on 2008-12-10
I use lemon juice on my freckles by applying it with a cotton pad and wiping it over the affected areas and leaving it on over night.I also put some more on in the morning same thing with a cotton pad and than apply my make up once it has dried.I only started using it last night 10/12/2008 and all ready i can see a difference and so could my mum.I think any one with freckles should use lemon juice as i have tried so many fade creams and they just dont work for me.Any way theres my tip..All the best and Merry Christmas to you al..

It Stingss :( Comments By: Holly_X on 2008-12-28
Heyyah,, im 13 years old and i have loads of freckles, and i tryed the lemon juice and stings!! but i rubbed half a lemon on my face, is that what undiluted lemon juice is??
And does it make moles go way or fade??

Lemon seem to make my freckles more visible Comments By: sammi on 2008-12-27
Ok,here goes i've tryed (1)Herbal skin doctor-Kinda worked but it made me sweat all the time.The cream felt like it was clogging on my skin especially due to it thick texture.(2)Lemon juice twice daily-Seem to make my freckles more visible.My mum still use lemon and i think it does work for her but she is also useing the cream aswell.Aftr useing 1st n 2nd time,do notice the skin being very radiant n glowy.(3)Freckle cream-Worked great,saw my results in 4 days!Must only use on freckle etc..areas.Most of my freckles are faded and some gone.But i dont think they can fade all completely.Bought frm ebay.It states u will see results in 7 days.Just go to ebay,the name is called-Best spot cream removes spots,pigment n freckle in 7 days.Its from china by d way.Cream Only �3.39,shipping depending where you r? Its worth a try! I ne to start useing twice daily again,me getting too lazy...he..he. Hoped my little experience made it helpful to you all out there with freckles? Totally 4got! I also bought frm them a complete removal kit for moles,freckles etc..worked great.It involves scratching surface of d skin then apply formular n allow 4 20mins.Gotta b very careful dough! Scratching is to allow the formular 2 penatrate..dnt scratch 2 deep dough or else it will sting very bad.But it ne to sting anyway so you knw its working.Their ebay shop has many interesting products.Its cheap and it works! i think i payed around �5 or more.B4 that i was thinking of buying-Blemish free but looks like i found myself a real bargain jus on ebay! Whoopi! :)
millions of dark brown freckles!!!x Comments By: Anon on 2008-12-29
Ok well i have like millions of brown freckles on my nose and cheeks there big aswell i have tiny light brown freckles on my arms aswell but theres also loads up my arms too but i tried a juice of a lemon on my face it didnt really fade at all, was it a juice of a lemon or lemon juice that you buy from a shop? or is there any other proven thing that does the job? anyone ?? x
Hmm... Comments By: Aimee on 2009-01-17
Okay, I'm not sure if I'll get better results just leaving it on and not washing it off after I put it on, or if I wash it off... And does the no named brand of Lemon juice work? Because that is what's on my face right now. Also does any body know how long it takes for freckles to totally 'dissapear' ( or at lest become light enough that you can barley see them)? I've had freckles for a long time and before when I was younger they didn't bug me that much but for the past 2-3 years I've absoluley dispised them, and they made me feel ugly, and insucure about my face. I really, really want my freckles to be gone and I really hope this works!!!!

i am doing a science experiment Comments By: george on 2009-02-10
i have put lemon juice+vinegar+honey on my face so far it has stung and has made my skin feel tight
Actually Comments By: Jane on 2009-02-12
Lemon Juice works as a mild form of bleach. Because it is mild, you will have to use this method for a long time before actually seeing any results. Additionally, lemon Juice can also be used to lighten hair in the same way. Usually the effect on your skin is so slow and gradual however that you probably won't even realise the results when it's working. Maybe you should take a picture of a before and after after 4-6 months or so to see an actual result. This is definately not an overnight treatment. However, it will lighten/bleach your skin to some degree, making your freckles appear to fade.
It sting because... Comments By: Caroline on 2009-02-12
the lemon juice stings because your skin is too dry. i started doing this for about 4 days and stopped cuz i was lazy. you take a lemon wedge from a fresh lemon and rub it all over your skin. dont wash it off but mosturize about 30 min. after. i think you should start seeing visible results in 2-4 weeks. be careful, it will make you more prone to freckles if you do not put sunscreen on when you go outside. USE SUNSCREEN and you wont have any interferences for your treatment. good luck!!
ATTENTION ! Comments By: Racheal on 2009-02-18

Lemon Juice Really does Work.

Lemon juice from a lemon is better!
it fades them into a more skintone so no it doesn't last forever!

1. How long would I keep it on my face for?
2. Does it permanently get rid of them or just for the short term ? :(

PLEASE help i dont know what else to do..

Advice (: Comments By: Anon on 2009-05-10
Okay basicly this is what you do;
before you go to bed, put lemon juice from a bottle or lemon juice squeezed out of lemons DO NOT USE LEMONADE IT WILL NOT WORK. Dont wash it off, just go to sleep.
When you wake up wash your face and put moisturiser on, then suncream. YOU MUST APPLY SUNCREAM OR YOUR FRECKLES WILL JUST GET WORSE. Apply foundation ontop of the suncream, eventually when your freckles fade to the desired effect apply one of those build-up tans so your face looks a nice natural colour, BUT DONT STOP USING SUN CREAM OR THEY WILL COME BACK. Voila, nice face (:

my recommendation. Comments By: Madeline on 2009-05-17
my friend recommended to me damping vinegar on your skin and then using St. Ives Apricot Scrub.
i used this and i kindaah saw a good difference :D i'm still doing it every morning and night :) i recommend it to everyone...

What I've heard is.... Comments By: Slipknotickitten on 2009-05-20
I'm definitely going to give this a try. For others who are interested, I have heard that you can use a lemon wedge and apply it directly, or squeeze the juice of the lemon and use it as a toner.

Couple this with a daily routine and ALWAYS use sunscreen. Using sunscreen and staying out of the sun will make the difference in whether or not this works.

You can check it out of youtube, there is a video by both ehow and expert village showing you how.

Even if it doesnt work to lighten, its going to be good for your skin because of the zVit. C. and the acid in it will be great for oily skin.

If it bothers you or makes you sticky, let it sit a bit and then rinse your face (like 20-30 minutes) or apply moisturizer if your skin feels tight.


Omg, I tried this and it worked fast! Comments By: YEAH(: on 2009-05-21
I have very light freckles and barely any across my nose and cheeks,but im a perfectionist. I didn't have lemon juice so I poured lime juice on a cottonball,and tried this for the first time a couple minutes ago, and the only dark ones are already light,and the light ones are almost faded, like 5 minutes after! YEAHHH( : And it makes your skin look more fair. But now I can have the perfect skin I've dreamed of!!!! Good luck(:

hello im 14 and i have always hated my freckles, and when i was about 9/10 i asked my mum if she could scrub them off and she said dont be silly no you cant. ive learned to live with them i dont particulally like having them i hate it sometimes but i just think well there what makes me, ME. and i wear makeup. i wear a dark foundation then put a lighter one on top of that then i put compact/pressed powder on and its fine i learn to live with it. and to be honest i wouldnt use the lemon juice as much as i hate my freckils. i just really dont think its a good idea!!

what if neither one of your parents have freckles Comments By: jessika on 2009-06-07
if you only have freckles slighly on your face and neither one of your parents have them does that mean sooner or later mine will go away?

Sensitive skin, will it sting? Comments By: Jess on 2009-06-12
I'm 14 and have sensitive skin, will the lemon juice sting and will it giveme a rash? And also will it make my skin paler than usual, because i don't want a patch of whiter skin.
Ive tried it at 13 Comments By: Alice on 2009-06-13
The first time I tried it I wasn't sure beacuse I am 13 and I read some comments about it making teenagers skin itchy but I am really glad that I have done it now. I used the fresh juice of a lemon

More freckle fading tips - and how to do it! - read on!! Comments By: Jojo on 2009-07-08
You are all doing this without proper instructions, so rather than explain in depth here, I found a website that can help, and it has other tips to try - so check it out wwww.ehow.com. Search for "freckle fading", and there are several ideas and advice. Main one being, that to keep faded freckles from returning, you have to wear SUNSCREEN every day, that means no more tan salons either!! Every time you expose your face to the sun, your freckles will come back - unless you wear sunscreen. So, it's either no freckles and be pale or get a tan and live with freckles - so bear that in mind folks! ;o)

Will it work on individual freckles? Comments By: Anon on 2009-08-11
would the lemon juice work if i just put a little on a cotton bud and dabbed it on my freckles? I have a few on my face.
AMAZING!!!:) Comments By: zoster12 on 2009-08-15
Ive only used lemon juice once, but it seems to work!:) At night, before i went to bed i rubbed it on my face. When i woke up in the morning, my freckles were a BIT lighter, but thats because i only used it once. The more u use it, the more faded your freckles will become. I also noticed the 2 of the pimples that i had on my cheek were gone! Amazing:)
PLEASE HELP!!! Comments By: Dani on 2009-08-12
Hi! Im 12 years old, and i have a lot of freckles. Should i use lemon juice from a lemon, or from those little yellow bottles with lemon juice? Do i put it on a cloth, and then rub it on my face, or just squirt it on my face, then rub it in? I have pretty white skin, so will it make my skin even whiter? Can i still use facial washes after i put it on? School starts in about a month, and i want them pretty much gone by then. PLEASE help me Tipking!!! I really want nice skin like everybody else. Please give me some answeres verry soon. bye. :)

48 year old freckles Comments By: Johnna on 2009-10-24
I came upon this site about fading freckles. I have had freckles all my life. It bothers me more now than when I was a little girl. I hate my freckles. Even though I have a family and I am loved I still hate the freckles, especially on my arms. I work out and the spots embarrass me.
Is the lemon theory for real? I never heard of that. I will try. How long does it usually take to work? How long leave it on?


help Comments By: Anon on 2009-10-29
I have freckles covering my intire face , i really don't like am i want to get rid of them asap. I tried lemon juice but i always thought it left my skin very dry, so i stopped using it after like a week . How long would it take to make them actually go away or is there any other ways to get them away??
YOU CANT FULLY GET RID OF FRECKLES! Comments By: Anon on 2009-11-05
Hey, iv had freckles for many years and i also hate them. I have them on my face, arms and back. I cover them up with make-up however this does not work. I get really upset in the summer when them come out even more. I went to the doctors and a skin therpy centre to see how i could remove them. the answer is you cant. it would cost 2,000 to lazer each freckle which is painful and then they will come back again in the summer no matter how much suncream you use. these freckles are there to protect your skin so will never fully go away. my doctor suggested fading cream and lemons as a source to fade your freckles but will not remove them. I suppose them faded tho is better than still having them. so im gonna try tonight.
Permanent? Comments By: Anon on 2009-11-11

Hooray for the humble lemon and pure Tea Tree Oil! Comments By: E. Wilson B.H.Sc ND. HD on 2009-12-06
I write to correct some misapprehensions written here!! I am an Alternative Practitioner of over 40 years and because I have a bit of background knowledge on this subject, I hope my comments help:)
Lemon juice comes from LEMONS! Not bottles. So use fresh lemons. They are stronger than limes. It is safe to use undiluted on healthy skin, in fact it is used to detox the skin by cutting up at least a dozen lemons in chunks in a bath each day and rubbing them into your skin. You do this for 7 days for best effect. You can also use lemon juice mixed with e.g. honey, tea tree oil, sugar, salt and apply those to the skin (not mucus membranes or sensitive parts of the body). You can also have it in cup of water (hot or cold) daily to detox your body.
Comment as to why other warts disappeared when originals were treated - it is a virus, the Tea tree oil, probably killed the virus in the bloodstream, until you contract it again! :(

Apple Cider Vinegar also works, and helps fade age spots too!

Lemon temp. Comments By: Sharlet on 2009-12-09
Hi, I am Sharlet and I was just wondering if I can't use the lemon juice for a little while will the freckles start to come back. Also since I am using the lemon juice and it's fading my freckles, if I want to stop using the lemon juice will they just become darker again.
Lemons Comments By: Lisa on 2009-12-09
Hi, if I have to leave home for a little while and I have to be on the road,can I just take the lemon juice without putting it in a cold refridgerator or does it have to be in one?
freckles Comments By: piper on 2009-12-13
lemon juice really depends on your skin type, it could fade them wonderfully or not at all, so its up to you try it, i have heaps of freckles, there only little light brown ones but i have them all over my face arms and legs and i think they are hideous, beleive me, i have tried everything to get them off (mainly the ones on my legs) i've tried lemo juice, lime juice, deep exfoliation even tried to scratch a couple off (REALLY NOT a good idea at all) and now i've just learn't to live with them i still hate them and would much rather not have any but really, thats the skin you have so if lemon juice works, your lucky if not, just accept it, really there just dots on your skin, there not that bad :)
:( Comments By: JennaGrace on 2009-12-29
I really don't see why anyone would want rid of thier freckles,they make you original and different from everyone else, and yes I do have freckles and sure I've hated them sometimes but really you just have to learn to love them, and make them look good. I've not tried lemon juice but Ive been told that it can be really bad for your skin and make it peel, so personally I'd rather have freckles than peeling skin.

How long do i leav e the lemon juice on Comments By: Mike on 2010-01-10
tipKing please reply :) how long do i leave it on for?

TipKing says: I do not know, I have never used the tip. If I were then I would try short periods and see if there were any results. If not then try longer periods.

1 1/2 weeks and it actually works Comments By: i'm a noobie sauce~ on 2010-01-10
This actually works, and to the people who ask if lime works, yes it does, I'm using lime, since lemons are hard to come by here and it works awesomely! It might burn a bit especially if you have acne or a scar in your face but its only for some seconds, a minute tops.
Also for best results put sour cream 15 minutes after you put the lemon/lime juice, and also leave for about 15 minutes, then wipe it off with a dry or slightly damp napkin.
And I'm pretty sure it works for all races to the people who ask =D

how long will it take to go away Comments By: dinosaur on 2010-01-11
im really impateint and i want to know about how long my freckles will go away??? i'll do it twice a day fo 15 minutes :)
Over night Comments By: SAM :) on 2010-01-12
I believe putting lemon juice on the areas you want cleared up before you go to sleep and in the mornign wash it off. then re-apply. then wash it off before u go to bed the re-apply and repeat for a week and you might see a difference.
iv done it before Comments By: unfreckled on 2010-01-14
ok well first of all my mom knows alot about skincare.what iv noticed is that the lemon juice from bottles seems to work better. what i did was brush the juice on2 my face with a make up brush.i left it on my face the whole night but at the begining it itches ALOT! it helps 2 get a fan or cloth and wave it in front of ur face as the cold air sooths it. when it dries in u feel as if theres a layer of film over ur face.as for how long it takes for them 2 fade im not sure, its different 4 every1.
iv done it before Comments By: unfreckled on 2010-01-14
a few recipes include: lemon juice, lemon juice with honey and vinigar,mashed up cucumber and[or] parsly, papaya (suposed 2 be very efective), papaya soaps or body scrub. (cinamon is also used but burns like hell)

Try this Comments By: Ms N on 2010-01-24
I'm 16 and i try lemon and lemon juice when i was a tad younger but it did nothing to fade my freckles.
BUT good news is that i recently found a cream to fade freckles that is cheap and really, REALLY gets works.

Its called John Plunkett's SUPERFADE cream. I've been using it for less than a week morning and night and its just like applying suncream, you just have to rub it into your skin. By the morning of the 3rd day it had already made a difference and has continued to do so. I wish i had taken before shot to compare before and after i had started using it.

You can buy it from Chemist Warehouse in Australia for about $25. There is also SUPERFADE face cream and another is SUPERFADE accelarator which speeds up the process.

This will reduce freckles in 6-8 weeks is what it says on the tube so i can't wait until then but so far it is work great for me.

anyways i'm going to stop talking about it cause i kinda feel as though i'm selling it to you or something.
so good luck to everyone trying to get rid of your freckles.
p.s. i've heard bio-oil can be alright too. I own bio-oil but it feels really oily and gross so didn't try it.

Confused! Comments By: Georgia. on 2010-01-26
Right, I have freckles, they don't stand out that much, until you look close. I also have 2 small moles at the side of my mouth, will the lemon juice damage the moles, and give me a rash or something daft? And also, for how long should I use it for? Thanks alot :D
? Comments By: ally on 2010-02-07
Is it good for evening skin tone too? And how long will it take? And lastly but most imporant is it damaging in the long run?

I know leomon juice first hand! Comments By: gemsstone on 2010-02-25
lemon juice also acts as an acne fighter, if you are worried about it drying out your skin just use a safe lotion shortly after. Its just like using rubbing alchol but, is natural i have been using it for a long time now. I use the 100 percent juice from bottle that way it dosent dry my skin out that much. It will sting because it is fighting that bad bacteria like an astrigent would do. Just use it as a part of your skin routine, it does work. And if you think about it wouldnt be nice to smell like lemons and not some man made product!?

Freckle mania! Comments By: Blondehairblueyesandfreckles on 2010-03-13
I went outside to tan because I'm a rather fair-skinned and pale person. Ten minutes in the sun and I had at least 100 freckles more. So I used lemon juice on my face and it's slowly working! It makes your face slightly paler but not much at all. It only stung on spot on my face such as a opened blemish or a cut. It makes your skin have a natural glow too. You should atrt seeing it work in abouth three treatments. I used a slice of Lemnos when applying the lemon juice. Be patient, give it a week or so. :)

Wether you might have a friend who has the perfect skin , well perfect is boring , you should be proud of your freckles they make you unique and most boys like freckles which you might no believe but they do so dont USE LEMON JUICE ! xxxxx hope this helps and any questions you want to ask just reply back to me and i will answer them a.s.a.p xxxx

laser treatment Comments By: anon on 2010-05-28
according to my dermatologist there is only 1 way to remove freckles and moles permanently. She suggested me to do a laser treatment, but this can only be done in the winter cause after the treatment you have to stay 4months away from the sun!
My personal expiereience/opinion Comments By: Joe on 2010-06-03
Well to be honest im thirteen i hate my freckles as im getting to that age coming up to year nine, im sure this is a problem for lots of people. Its summer at the moment and this is when freckles start to appear, i have lots down my arms and face.
Lemon juice tips*
Aplly with rubbing on ur hand and gently smoothing it round your skin i really hobe this works, i will go into the shop tomorrow and buy some NORMAL lemons, no jif from a bottle NORMAL lemons as they are healthier work better and contain vitamin c, the main ingredient.
Give it a go worse comes to worse your skin will be a tiny bit paler but no worries if you apply sunscreen over 15 this will prevent any more freckles and i have been reading peoples accounts, yes towards adolesent ages, 18-19 they will disseaper (Apart froom redheads). but its out teenage we worry as we want girlfriends and boyfriends. i say apply once in morning for 15 minutes then go wash it off then put suncream on then repeat at night i hope this helps with your problems

LISTEN! Comments By: Rebecca on 2010-06-07
Listen every one! Just have a look at how many people are asking how to get rid of their freckles. I wanted to get rid of mine, but then I realised if this many people have freckles then, what makes them so bad? I have always been self concious and thought that I was ugly, I probebly am ugly, but its who I am. I see nothing wrong with freckles. Some people think they're cute. :/ just give them a chance, because if you use this lemon stuff and it permanently removes them, you might regret it and that will be a great loss. You cant see your face when you are walking around, and who cares what other people say? You should be happy with who you are. I think I am? and you should use face masks, moisturisers and spot removal things, eat lots of friut and drink water, it will leave your skin looking fressh, luminous and clean, even with the freackles. Love your skin, If you really dont like them, then use spf foundation, that way it will keep them from breaking out in the suna dn will leave you looking beautiful! trust me, you are who you are, whats the point in changing it. If everyone thinks that looks matter, then how will we ever be able to be in a relationship based on personality? there are great people out there, that might not be classed as gorgeous by guys becuase they have freckles and missing out on great guys, but then if we all show confidence and look after our selves we might be able to beat the "good looking people" to the punch :) becuase you are gorgeous, love yourself and dont let other people tell you differently. trust me. :) xxxx

new freckles Comments By: Elise on 2010-06-23
I am 32, and for some reason just got a bunch of freckles after a bad sunburn 2 years ago. I mean a sunburn like I have never seen. I have freckles now on my face, shoulders, legs everywhere. I even have scars on my back from blisters and peeing. I actually think freckles are cute! But it is really odd to have a new addition to my face when I am over 30. You shouldn't find freckles when you find your first grey hair!
concealor Comments By: outre on 2010-06-24
i use to have alot of freckles when i was a kid. ive been wearing concealor, foundation, coverup since 5th grade, now im 17. i dont have any freckles. its wierd but i guess since my face hardly sees alot of sunlight, the freckles have faded over time. theyre pretty much gone. for people that dont want to wait years or however long it takes for them to fade, coverup is obviously a good way to cover up light freckles. freckles that r black prob wouldnt look good wit concealor but idk. the lemon juice thing, idk, i might try it on my arms, cuz i have light freckling on my arms

DO NOT USE FADE CREAM Comments By: kathy on 2010-08-02

my skin Comments By: bee on 2010-08-28
hi i got a little on the dark side today in i was wondering if i use lemon jucie would it work
DO NOT USEE ! Comments By: elliee x on 2010-09-05
okay if u use this it will get rid of the stuff in ur skin that protects u from getting sunburnt. it will make ur skin white and u will burn easily and when u burn it will b really bad. u will end up with big blotches on ur skin and u will have to wear sun cream all the ttime. LEMON IS ACID it will give u bad long term damage to ur skin it is powerful enough to make a battery so what is it doing to ur skin?? and people r sayin it burns well that cant b good? seriously dont use it u will regret it. x
U dont hav to use this! Comments By: HopeGirl on 2010-09-12
hey,im a 13 year old who has very pale nd sensativ skin. BUT! i play soccer nd ALWAYS forget to put sunscreen on, so therefore i got unwanted freackles! :P! well, i happened to get this lotion, called "Nivea Daily Moiusturizer Natural Tone" nd it really works! i dont know if it works for ntural freackles, but i SERIOUSLY DOUBT u would break out,get red, etc! I put it on rite bfore i went to bed, nd in the morning, i noticed less freckles! If u hav a tan though, it does happen to fade it if u keep using it. Hope tht helps!!!:)

TAN Comments By: chuck on 2010-12-05
if you have a bunch of freckles you dont want just lie in the sun and get a tan...People say it makes more freckles appear but it actually makes the skin darker so the freckles arent noticable..I tried it and it Worked very well. Freckles can be a blessin.
lemon juice Comments By: me on 2010-12-11
right rubbing lemon juice on your freckles sounds very stupid but maybe it works but that doesnt matter its the tan problem then so when your freckles are gone you will be stuck with a pale face so if anybody here know how to get a tan plz tell cuase if i go out to the sun i just get more freckls

How long do you leave it on for? Comments By: Mary on 2010-12-19
Hi, Once you apply the lemon juice for 15 minutes do you wash it off? Or are you just meant to leave it to sink into your skin.

Hello. I know I've already been on here but......well......I'm just HOPING AND HOPING this will work. My mum has some lemon juice in the fridge for when she has pancakes. Will that work?

It actually works. Comments By: Maria. on 2011-01-17
Okay it may sound crazy but this method does work. If you persist and have the same routine, once a day and every night before you go to sleep, your freckles visibility will be radically reduced. It honestly works I tried it and I have like 2 freckles where I used to have thousands.

Really hope lemon juice works as I have no $ for laser treatment.

Tips for using Lemon Juice... Comments By: Jess on 2011-04-07
-If you're using lemon juice, wash it off after 15-30 mins.
-Do it day and night.
-It should sting at first (especially if you have acne, or open sores on your face), but will stop after a short time.
-It won't make you break out. It may actually help heal them up, as lemon is an natural antibacterial and antiseptic.
-Don't leave it on your face if you go outside, as it will attract the suns rays and make you sunburn quicker than normal.
-If the freckles are fading, wear suncreen, as they will darken back up with the sun.
-It won't happen quickly, but they will fade gradually.
-Moisturize after you wash the juice off. Guys get yourself a moisterizer too, you'll be thankful of it when you're older.
-You can mix Lemon juice with a bit of Tumeric too, as a face mask, to help more. Do this at night, perhaps while in the bath, as Tumeric can stain a bit. But by the morning the staining would have gone.

Hope this helps guys! I'm in my 30s and have really dark Freckles. Been using Lemon juice for about 6mnths and am seeing them lighten up gradually.

no lemon juice.....tomato??? Comments By: neonkatt on 2011-04-14
I am going to try but not tonight because i dont have lemons or lemon juicce yet. I heard that tomato juice works is this true or false???? Please answer soon :)
Hey guess What !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Comments By: neonkatt on 2011-04-14
I tried the lemon juice! It worked I noticed the tip of my nose was almost clear. thats all that happened except I noticed my freckles fading a little bit. remember this is my first time. I am so happy !! :) I can not believe it *_* I am amazed by this !! Well I hope you guys try it if you want to know this is how I used it.
1. cut a fresh lemon (it doesnt need to be perfect)
2. stand infront of a mirror and notice the spots you want gone.
3. now you may get a napkin or towel or in my case I got my finger, and put the lemon juice on it (about two drops at a time)
4. now that you have the drops ready to rub on your face you should start at your cheeks simply to see how it feels.(for me it did indeed sting alot so just deal with it.)
5.If you can deal with the pain then rub the rest in on the desired spots.
6. Is it all rubbed in? Good now go relax with it on for fifteen minutes.
7. Now that the fifteen minutes is up go to the mirror get a towel and wash the lemon juice off.
8. you are finished Yay! did you notice anything? please remember this may not work for some individuals.
info: you may use just lemon juice in a bottle ( i have not tested this) Also do these steps in the morning once and at night once. Good Luck !!!!

Quite a few feckles over my nose and cheeks Comments By: michele on 2011-04-18

Help please!
For all body freckles Comments By: Sparky on 2011-04-19
Hey all! I just started using this and while it doesn't fade freckles as fast as just plain juice, it is easy to use everywhere, works and doesn't dry out skin!!! My lighter freckles on my arms are gone, and the darker ones are a lighter brown.

Get a jar and fill it with equal amounts of olive oil, lemon juice, and honey. Make sure you mix it well before each use!

After you are done taking a shower, make sure you rub it all over, let it sink in for like 5 mins and rinse it off with hot water. It should still be a little sticky/slimey because of the olive oil, but just helps keep your skin from getting dried out by the lemon :)

I just get the jelly/jam jar from ikea so it's air tight between uses, but only do a tiny amount bc I don't want the lemon juice going bad. I've been doing this for about a month now and just started noticing the diff so don't give up!!!!

But yeah. . . going out into the sun will bring it all back. . .so SuNSCReeeN!11

does it work?
i am pale and i like being pale (idk XD)
so that doesnt bother me but like will it make my face lighter than the rest of my body? does it make that much of a difference? or what because half the time i prefer not to wear a huge foundation routine so i dont want to look like a geisha.. just sayin

Kinda works. c: Comments By: Kayla Williams' on 2011-08-01
I'm 13. And have a lot of freckles on my face. I had heard from another website that lemon juice makes them fade, so i gave it ago. c:
I used lemon juice on my face twice a day for 2 weeks. They faded a little, but not much. I would recommend using lemon juice to make freckles fade if you don't have a lot of them. But if your like me and your face is literally covered in them, the result won't be much. But hey, why not give it a go? Aha. c:
