Well to be honest aloe gel mkes my skin feel tight, especially if it's the store bought "gel" instead of straight from the plant. And I hate my face feeling tight.

90% Clear thanks to Ortho Tri-Cyclin Lo!
Current Routine:
-Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub
-Carley's Clear and Smooth Exotic Butter Moisturizer
-Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer with SPF 30
-Clean and Clear Persa Gel Maxiumum Strength (spot treat)
-Tretinoin 0.05% (currently twice weekly at night)
-Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask (once a week)
-Everday Minerals Mineral Makeup
-Ortho Tri-Cyclin Lo

As long as you dilute the lemon juice solution according to your skin sensitivity, you should be fine. However, I'm not sure how this will fair for non-inflamed acne; generally you need either dietary changes and/or regular exfoliation (chemically and/or manually).

Also, the aloe vera gel varies in absorbency, depending on the individual. Your skin might feel tight. If so, switch to something that would dissolve easily into the fat-soluble nature of your skin, like a non-comedogenic oil.
