Lemon juice does fade freckles if used properly

Submitted by draydan

Lemon juice does fade freckles if it is used properly. Below is a detailed list to help

The rules 

1 Try it out first
apply a little to the patch of skin just below the ear lobe twice a day as outlined by later rules do so for at least a week if no reaction froms you sre safe to continue

2 No more than twice a day 
(self explanitory)

3 Fresh is best but any will do 
Fresh lemon juice is best but bottled will do if you can try to use preservative free (lime also works but is very harsh and more prone to cause bad reactions)

4 The procedure outlined 
Apply the lemon juice to the effected area using a cotton swab (carefully when near the eyes) leave this on for no less than an hour but not longer than twelve 
rinse and moisturize.

5 Balance
In total your treatment hours per day may never exceed 12 out of 24

6 Effects
Effects may vary if you have been using for 1 month and noticed no change then chances are you never will. Normally effects can be seen within two weeks

7 Pale people don't fret
Lemon juice does fade skin tone but even skin looks more radiant than blotchy skin (if the tone) of your skin really is too light try using a tinted moisturizer instead of you regular one

Hope I cleared the air if you have any questions post or email me [email protected]

i hate my freckles. Comments By: anon on 2010-05-23
im going to apply the lemon juice on my face tonight and leave it on for about 20 minutes then wash it off. i really hope it works! but i really dont want it to harm my face or for it to come up with any rashes as my skins quite sensitive. My freckles have shown up more now in the summer and they look horrible there all over my cheeks and theres a few on my forehead.. i just think they make me look un-attractive and i've gotten to the stage where it puts me down, i spend ages in the morning trying to cover them up but it doesnt help. so fingers crossed it works! (:
I bet it works! Comments By: Logan on 2010-05-31
I bet this works! It sounds covincing. I have a few on my cheeks right under my eyes from being sunburned many times. I hope this works!

sad about freckles! Comments By: Beth on 2010-06-04
Hello I am a 13 year old girl and I have freckles all over my face. On my cheeks forehead chin and especially my nose and I have noticed that they have appeared more in the summer.For some time I used nur76 skin lightening cream however I found no results so I did some research and found that many people use lemon juice!I hate my freckles so much and think that they make me look unattractive. Although I use foundation I am dying to have that natural effortless and clear look that all my friends have but that is impossible wiv freckles. I have been using lemon juice for a short amount of time and I have already seen some results. I am going to keep using it for another month to see where it takes me. Also I think that it makes your skin much smoother! I will keep you posted! Thank you!
zomg it works<33 Comments By: insertyournamehere on 2010-07-03
i just squeezed out some juice from a lemon, left it on overnight then washed it off in the morning,they looked kinda faded.. unfortunately i'm too lazy to do it everyday but im pretty sure that if you do it every day it'll fade freckles..good luck(: .!
question... Comments By: gabrielle on 2010-07-23
do you have to apply it twice a day?? and what if you use aveeno radiant skin moisturizer (to even out skin tones) at the same time? will that effect it negatively?

i hate freckles Comments By: anon on 2010-11-29
i have light freckles across the bridge of my nose. But i have about 7-8 really dark ones on my face and one huge one on my forehead. i hate them very much and have tried almost everything. the dermotoligist said no cream works and even laser is not 100% effective. im really depressed and searching for anything that will fade them, HELP PLEASE!
Doesn't Work! UGH! Comments By: may on 2010-12-15
I absolutely HATE my freckles!!!! I don't really have many but i still hate them. They look cute on other people but NOT me. At least, in my opinion. I also have a little bit of acne so it makes me look even worse. It lowers my self confidence like, alot. Laser Freckle Removal is too expensive and i'm only 13, so i can't pay for it yet.
I just pray i find another idea that works, or i'll have to wait till i'm older. Ugh. xP

how to get moles to go away Comments By: lalalalaalz on 2011-01-06
sry but there is no way to get a mole to go away at your house. It must be removed by a doctor. sorry. Oh i and i really want to try this but its the middle of winter so i dont want the lemon to take away what little of tan is left. also wont it look weird if i have light patches of skin and som spots darker??

READ TO KNOW MORE ABOUT FRECKLES! Comments By: Anon on 2011-05-14
Alright.. so i've researched a little bit about this. the freckles only work on some people's skin. So that's why they wrote that if you don't see results for a month, then it probably won't work. IF YOUR ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO CAN'T GET RID OF YOUR FRECKLES.. [like me] then don't keep using this because it'll be useless, and since lemon's are very acidic, then once u go out in the sun u'll get them bck unless sunscreen is applied. Those who can't get rid of them.. unfortunately, have to try buying cream. Well good luck to everyone.. hope it works out for you? :D
