Turmeric and lemon are very good combination for skin lightening without complications. While the turmeric absorbs into the skin and breaks down the melanin, the lemon juice works as a bleaching agent. For people who have an oily skin, lemon helps cut down the oil and gives the skin a fresher look. Since lemon makes the skin photosensitive, avoid going out in the sun after using this face mask. It is preferable to use it at bedtime, so there would be enough time gap before exposing the skin sun. And for people who have a sensitive skin, its advised to do a patch test first before applying the mask.
