Exclamation lemons for freckles/sunspots???

hi, i'm 24, asian and have had freckles/sunspots for more than five years now. But now, i'm noticing that they are getting darker each year, some of the spots got bigger and new ones appear every summer. I've considered getting whitening skincare, but the cosmetic lady at the counter told me that it will make my entire complexion lighter, but the freckles/sunspots will still show...

Then i read this: [url=",1413,211%257E24577%257E1218911,00.html"],1413,211%257E24577%257E1218911,00.html[/url]
the article tells me that i can apply lemon to those areas several times a day and the skin will peel off and make the spots lighter. has anyone tried this??? i'm afraid that the acid will irritate my skin and leave scars.

please advise and reply if you can help me!!!

applying lemon juice to your skin 'several times a day' can cause your skin to peel . . .but you don't need to apply it that often to fade a freckle/sun spot. It shouldn't cause scars unless you're constantly peeling the skin off,or if you have very sensitive skin.
