Dear Lybrate User,
*Lemon juice acts as an organic bleaching agent because of its natural acidity property, which helps you in lightening the dark spots on your skin. The bleaching property helps you in getting rid of any kind of spots.
You can simply squeeze out some juice out of a lemon and apply it directly on the dark spot by dipping a cotton ball in the lemon juice. Let it rest for about half an hour and rinse it off with cold water. Repeat this at least two times a day. It takes 2 months for you to see positive results.
*One more option to remove brown spots is to apply lemon juice with some sugar dissolved in it on to the affected skin area. Leave it on for about half an hour before rinsing it off. This way you can even remove age spots as well.
