Lemon Lemon Juice Applied Directly to Acne

Use the lemon juice remedy to clear your acne. It’s a simple and natural way to treat your own skin and it is completely safe.
You can either apply lemon juice onto your skin or drink it. Both will help you reduce blemishes and scars externally and internally.

I have tried both applications of lemon juice (applying it directly to acne and drinking it) and found my acne was greatly reduced within 3 weeks. I believe that, in combination with a gentle cleanser, this remedy can produce significant results.

Lemon juice contains one of the AHAs or Alpha Hydroxy Acids which is citric acid. It works by sloughing off dead skin, promoting skin elasticity, and enabling new skin cell growth rise from underneath. It also flushes out pores and keeps your skin feeling fresh and bright.

Lemon Juice Topical Recipe / Instructions

Ensure your skin is clean.
Squeeze 1 teaspoon of lemon juice into a small bowl. Use a cotton ball to soak up some juice. Dilute it with water if it burns.
Dab the juice onto your pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples.
Leave on over night and rinse in the morning. Apply it again (under your makeup if you’re female).
If you find the lemon juice too strong too leave on, even diluted with water, wash it off after 10 minutes in cold water.
Expect improvements with this remedy after about 2 weeks. At this time, add a gentle cleanser with glycolic acid, like B. Kamins cleanser for normal to oily skin combination.

It is possible that your acne is only one symptom of your body not receiving enough nutrients, vitamins, minerals or liquids. Therefore, consider detoxifying your body, which gets to the root cause of many diseases, including acne.

The e-book, Acne No More is an excellent read about the power of detoxifying your system, and learning how to care for your body the right way. I highly recommend it.
