Note: Citric acid is considered safe for use as it is milder and gentler than most other acids. However, it may cause redness and irritation on highly sensitive skin. Therefore, a patch test is recommended. Since Citric acid exfoliates the skin deeply, it becomes more susceptible to the harmful rays of the sun. Therefore, a sunscreen with good SPF should be used after treating the skin with Citric acid.
