In a bowl pour one tablespoon of lemon juice and then add one tablespoon of almond oil. Mix it well and then using a cotton ball, apply this mix  concentrating on your problem areas. Since lemon is acidic in nature and can be a little too strong for the facial skin, do not cover your whole face using the pack. Apply it only on the affected areas, targeting the blemishes.

Those who have sensitive skin might notice that their skin reddens a little as the lemon starts reacting. If you notice any such changes in the appearance of your skin, do not keep the lemon pack overnight, rinse it off after 30 minutes or so.

When you wash the pack in the morning, before stepping out make sure that you apply a sunscreen, as the lemon will make your skin vulnerable and increase the risk of sun damage. Also, avoid unnecessary time in the sun.

The lemon and almond oil will repair your skin and leave you with dewy and healthy skin. This lemon and almond oil mask is worth trying for the lightening and brightening benefits. Use it twice a week to see visible results. (ALSO READ This DIY green tea face mask will give you clear skin overnight!).
