Lemon juice has become all the rage in recent years for its ability to lighten hair and dark spots on the skin. However, it’s extremely acidic, which can be a recipe for disaster, especially when combined with sunlight.

The low pH of lemon juice can negatively impact the skin’s outer layer, resulting in less protection. This causes higher sensitivity to the sun, skin irritation, and even hyperpigmentation. True Skin Care Center warns that the worst-case scenario from using lemon juice on your skin is a chemical burn!
