Hello Princess, Thank you for the question.
Lemon is believed to brighten the skin. However, not everyone is suitable to use it as a face mask. In some people, the use of lemon masks actually causes irritation to the face. Facial irritation can occur especially if your face is often exposed to the sun. This irritation can cause facial skin to become reddish or darker, skin to feel sore or itchy, or skin to peel. You should stop using lemon as a face mask. You can do a cold compress on your face to reduce itching, do not scratch the itchy skin.
Make sure you use sunscreen when you are outdoors. Also avoid using cosmetics and skin care products that contain acids or other substances that can trigger irritation. Avoid direct sunlight for example by using a hat or shelter. If this complaint lasts more than 1 week and does not go away, please consult your dermatologist further. Your doctor will check the condition of your skin before determining the next treatment that can be in the form of the use of whitening creams, corticosteroid ointments, lasers, peels and more.
