Patient :I am 15 years old and i really want to lighten not get rid of but lighten my freckles. I got freckles from sun exposure and i don't feel comfortable about it. I have tried applying a few things such as lemon juice, turmeric powder and yogurt but they don't seem to do much good. The lemon juice effected my skin a bit as i used it everyday but i only tried using it for three days. How can i actually lighten my freckles?
