Regular exposure to sun, pollution and other chemicals in our makeup can make the skin dull and dark. We all love using our kitchen ingredients instead of bleaching products, as they are safer in whitening the skin and does not damage the skin in longer run. While lemon is known to be great for whitening the skin, it does not suit everyone. The high vitamin C content can cause irritation, redness, rash and breakout on oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin.
