Why This Works

We often use lemon juice to remove scars on the face. But, we can also use it to reduce tan without making the skin dry. This is because of the acids present in lemon juice that act as skin lightening agents. Doing this regularly will help you get rid of tan successfully over a period of 2-4 months.
