The Lemon on face method...

Hi all!

i am new here, i am currently 18 years old and from London, U.K having a bad case of acne #-o i've read that putting raw lemon juice sqeezed from a lemon on your face really helps, so i went out and bought 6 lemons. My questions are:

1 - When do i put the lemon juice on? Is it better to put it on before i go to sleep so that it will work overnight? and do i put it on once a day?

2 - Has this method worked/failed for anyone? Please tell me your stories biggrin.gif

Thanks in advance all!

Here is my story about it. I havent had any replies on The Regimen, but have had a couple on Scar Treatments.

Posted: Sun Dec 07, 2003 1:46 pm Post subject: Help me avoid another scar. PLEASE.


I heard from another site that Lemon Juice was an excellent remedy for scars. Mine are deep pits. I tried it a few months ago on one scar and was amazed at the results, it really worked.

2 weeks ago I decided to try it on another one. But it seems to have made it worse . Whereas before it was an icepick, it seems to be forming into a bigger scar - another deep pit And it is soooo noticable, on the front of my nose.

My skin has been fairly clear over the last few years (except for one time I came off dianette) But because of this latest, and may I add self inflicted, episode, the old feelings of dispair are coming back. I dont want to go out - I have dodged my friends for 2 weeks now. My mum showed me a magazine with recommendations for Bio-Oil (does it work?) so shes noticed what Ive done.

How can I stop this scar being permanent? Ive tried to leave it alone, moisturise it, Ive tried calamine lotion. What next? I feel awful. Ive not seen my partner for a few weeks, hes working away, and Im due to see him this weekend, I need to improve it by then, I cant have him see me like this. I dont care if the skin is red, that can be covered up, but I cant have this pit staying.


Sooooooo, what do you think? When you do this you are lterally applying acid to your face. Its a gamble you take; it may take the skin down to below the car, but will it leave it worse? Or will healthy new skin form over on top? The area will be a mess for a good few weeks. And its harder for guys, as they cant (well, normally dont!!) wear make up. The choice is yous1 I will keep you posted.

First of all many thanks for your reply, i appreciate it.

I don't have dents in my face, my acne is still on my face, red lumps and it's disgusting this is why i really want to get rid of them. I guess i am taking a gamble, using lemon juice i think may make it better as it will make the lumps go down and hopefully heal my skin. I don't think i can afford to damage my face any further as it is already damaged enough, i think i'll go see my GP and get some medicine off him, if he won't work, then i guess i will need to go to a dermotologist, i will use the lemon juice method as a last resort.

Thanks for your time and help Alison smile.gif
