My face is really dull and it has gotten darker from staying in the sun too much.  Which is better to lighten my skin-Hydroquinone or Lemon.

I prefer lemon juice. I use it as a quick mask after i wash my face and then use it as spot treatment after i moisturizer and use my bp. I used hydroquinone and it worked but it didnt work as quickly for me. Id say give both a shot and be sure to use a sunscreen with the hydroquinone during the day.
I like the lemon juice for the exfoliation and acne treatment as well!

Okay, thanks. I'll go back to using lemon juice. I have tried hydroquinone but I did not like the smell.

You can alternate them. In the long run hydroquinone is more powerful but is slower-acting. Lemon may give you faster results but can't penetrate as deeply.
