Everyone is aware of the bleaching properties of lemons. Unlike bleaching creams, lemons aren’t expensive and won’t damage your skin. You can also use lemons to lighten other dark areas like the thighs, knees, elbows and even your face. All you have to do is cut a lemon into two slices. Rub into the problem area. Allow the lemon juice to dry, then wash off. Viola! You’re well on your way to getting lighter armpits, thighs or wherever.
