|5(lemon)||Lemon extract in skincare is a known skin sensitizer and irritant. It can have antibacterial properties but its incredibly irritating, as lemon juice has a pH of 2, which is very acidic and its use is linked with damage to your skins acid mantle. Lemon extract/juice/peel/oil does way more harm than good. Using lemon juice on your skin, or products containing lemon extract, lemon oil, lemon peel and even other citrus extracts and peel oils (like orange, mandarin, grapefruit, etc.) can cause brown discolorations and red rash looking irritation when you go out into the sun. This is a reaction known as phytophotodermatitis.|
