If you're going to wear lemon juice all day not just over night then you need to make sure your wearing a good amount of sunscreen. Try ambi or aveeno spf 30.

I have been using lemon juice on my face now for the past 2 weeks and its worked for me...my dark spots are noticeable lighter and my skin more toned now...I wear the lemon all day and I do not wash it off...I do it when I get up in the morning and before I go to bed.

I make a paste with baking soda, lemon juice, and water and apply it as a mask. I do this at least once a day followed by shea butter and scargo. I make sure that I apply ambi and sunscreen when I leave the house adn reapply when necessary. It works really good. 

Of you feel that lemon is too strong I believe you can dilute it down a bit so it wont be so acidic. HTH.

Hi. I haven't tried this yet but I have a copy of Latina Magazine Jan 09 and in one article to even out skin tone it says to.....

"Combine a quarter-size amount of Cetaphil Cleanser with a teaspoon of baking soda and several drops of lemon juice. Rub the mixture onto your skin's darkest areas, wait a few minutes and then rinse off.

I haven't tried it though.
