Precautions when using lemon for the complexion

Now you have to be careful and proceed with caution with using lemons especially on your face. 

As lemon is extremely acidic it can cause skin irritation.  If this happens stop using it immediately

You must not use lemon and then go out in the sun as it makes your skin more sensitive to the sun

When using lemon juice to lighten dark spots, large, white leukoderma spots may develop instead.

How to apply lemon juice to the skin

Before beginning it is imperative that you try a little lemon juice on the wrist of near the elbow (some sensitive part that might not be seen too readily)  to see if there is a bad reaction

If you want to use the juice all round your face, try mixing equal parts milk with lemon juice and then apply.  This will have an exfoliating effect on the skin and helps to get the juice penetrating further into the skin.  Leave for 3 minutes and then rinse off and pat dry gently.   If needed apply a moisturiser to the skin.  Do not overdo this - about 3 times a week is sufficient

If you want the juice to put on spots, take a cotton bud, dip it in the juice and dab on the spot.  Leave for 3 minutes and rinse off
