Does lemon/lime juice work for hyperpigmentation?

Possibly: There are anecdotal reports of fresh lemon "bleaching skin" after application. Honestly, i would be more concerned about the finding out the cause of the hyperpigmentation with your physician rather than covering it up with a topical application.
