Lemon juice will act as an exfoliant because of its acidic nature. For example, if you lean on your elbows a lot, and have darker brown skin there because, it is common to rub lemons on the elbow and let it sit for half an hour, then rub out the skin with a towel. This will clear up dead skin cells and leave the skin lighter.

However, I've not heard of many people using on their faces, or on acne marks in general. It does seem sometimes people mix it with other topicals to make toner masks, or other such things. I'm not sure how beneficial it will be used alone, or for that matter what kind of procedures you should take when applying it to red marks.
