That doesn’t mean you can apply lemon to your skin, as its highly acidic and can damge your skin in long run and can make skin photosensitive. 

Vitamin C is not present in our body, unlike hyaluronic acid which already exists, it needs to be taken orally, so consume all the citrus fruits available, they are full of anti oxidant and anti inflammatory.
