If you put lemon drops in the serum, you should use the serum only at night after you cleanse the skin. But if you do not add lemon zest to the serum, you can apply this treatment serum during the day as well, after cleansing and smoothing the skin. Lemon juice makes the skin sensitive to light, so you should not use it during the day.

Massage the serum onto the face and neck in circular motions to get the benefits of a massage as well. The serum is easily absorbed by the skin because it is made of pure natural aloe vera.
