Lemon Juice & Skin Care

Lighten Age Spots and Freckles Naturally

Summer days in the sun can make freckles and age spots more pronounced. There is a natural way to lighten them that does not contain harmful chemicals. Beauties have used this one kitchen-cupboard ingredient for centuries to make their skin look smooth and flawless.
The secret to lightening age spots and freckles naturally is Lemon juice.

Lemon juice is the key to lightening age spots and freckles. Its powerful acid action really does the trick. Here are two methods for using lemon juice:

1. To exfoliate dead skin and diminish the appearance of freckles and age spots, gently rub a cut lemon and 1/2 teaspoon sugar granules over the skin for a few minutes. Repeat at least once a week until the darkened areas fade.

2. Or sit with a slice of lemon applied directly to the area for ten minutes. Repeat once a week until spots fade.
