Lemon - a natural remedy for acne

Yes, we can use lemon juice to eliminate acne / pimples because lemon contains antibacterial agent and natural astringent. It acts as exfoliants that help to remove dead skin and to prevent clogged pores. It is very simple and cheap to use lemon juice as a natural remedy for acne.

Here is how it works:

First, we should wash our face. Then cut a lemon and squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Dip a small cotton ball into the lemon juice and apply it to the affected area in our face. Let the lemon juice to dry on our skin (around 15 minutes). Then wash our face again. Do it twice a day, and your acne will be gone soon.

I have tried it and it is working well. I also use honey to clear black spots and am seeing good progress

Natural is always best -- if it works well. I like the smell of lemon, so the next time I need to take care of some acne, I'll try this! Thanks for the tip!

Thanks! I'm gonna go try it some time. So I should only dab the cotton with lemon juice on the affected area right? Thank you for this info :)

That may be the reason why some astringents have lemon scent. I'll share this to my teenage nephews who have acne problems.

This is a great tip. I forget about this easy way to cleanse the skin. Too many things going on in my head.
