  1. 1

    Cut two lemons in half, remove the seeds and squeeze the juice. Pour this juice into a spray bottle and fill it with distilled water. Spray this on your skin everyday until you achieve the desired level of lightening.

  2. 2

    Fill a small bowl with 1 tbsp of sugar. Squeeze a lemon into the bowl and mix it well. The lemon and sugar mixture should make a thick paste to be used as a scrub. Apply this mixture over your skin while gently massaging and leave it for about five minutes. Wash your face with warm water. Do this repeatedly for several days until you see the results you want.

  3. 3

    Mix equal parts of honey and lemon juice and apply the mask on your skin to create an advanced lightening effect.

  4. 4

    Mix equal parts of aloe vera juice and lemon, and apply to the skin.

  5. 5

    Mix equal parts of chamomile tea and lemon juice. Consider mixing lemon juice with oatmeal or cucumber, as both have calming properties.

Tips and warnings

  • Be careful when applying lemon to any open scars or pimples as the acid in the lemon could cause burning.
