Not Likely: The citric acid in lemon juice is not going to bleach your skin. If your cheeks are Rosie it is something you where born with and you should not be ashamed of them.

I have been taking a lot of fresh lemon juice but i still can't get rid of the weight what should I do?

Low sugar/high fiber: I really like the diet philosophy outlined by dr. Lustig in his book "fat chance". Basically, it's a low sugar, high insoluble fiber plan. Avoid juices, white breads, white rice, simple carbs and sugars, etc. Increase stringy fiber from fruits and vegetables. Fats (especially good fats) aren't as big of problem for weight gain as might be expected. ...Read more

Can you get rid of moles using mole removal cream?

Can you get rid of moles using mole removal cream?

Don't think so: Over-the-counter "mole removal" creams probably work like the "wart removal" creams, using some irritant or acid to destroy cells on the skin. Moles have pigmented cells that include cells that are deeper down in the skin surface, so the cells that are not destroyed will likely reproduce to prevent the mole from going away. It's best to have a dermatologist look at any moles a person doesn't want. ...Read more
