While you can use lemon and sugar to lighten the skin and encourage new, even coloured skin growth, lemon sugar scrubs are beneficial for a number of other reasons. Lemon is an astringent, it is anti-inflammatory and it has an antiseptic effect. It can, however, irritate the skin, so be careful when you use it. Do not rub too roughly and do not apply lemon juice close to your eyes as it is acidic and will sting.
