  1. some of my friends saying that face will turn into black colour by applying lemon on facee.is it true? nd tell me what the precautions we have to following when applying lemon

  2. Yes, it can if you will apply that in the day and go out in the sun. You should always use lemon juice mixed with some rose water and apply that in the evening so that you dont have to go out in the sun and once you will sleep the skin will also rejuvenate.
