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

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.
