Lemon juice applied topically can help

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I'm struggling with a humongous breakout right now and while I have no cure I do know something that helps. Cut a lemon in half and squeeze one of the halves into a little bowl. Then use a cotton swab to apply it to your face. If you can bear the stickiness you can leave it on all night or day. But I usually leave it on for 10-15 minutes and then wash it away.

While it hasn't cleared me, I find that it sometimes helps in making the big painful zits less painful and a bit smaller. It helps some of my zits that are under the skin surface. I think its something about the acid which is a natural exfoliant plus the Vitamin C helps your skin fight the infection.
