Lemon juice is helps get rid of acne/acne scars. Does lime juice work the same way?

Yes, it really works!! I like the limes cause they're cheaper. I use lime juice on dark scars and they will fade in a week or two. Sometimes it irritates my skin by my mouth and chin, but it goes away. I just cut a lime into 8ths, put it in a ziplock, and every morning, I take an eighth, squeeze it in a little saucer and rub it on my scars with my finger. I leave it on for as long as possible Anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours. Then I wash it off with a facial buff and cleanser. Just make sure to use sunscreen because Alpha Hydroxy Acid (which is what the lime juice contains- about 10%) causes the skin to burn easily in the sun.

I think it fades redness some, but it's hard to tell at first. For me it burned my skin a little and made it really itchy. So I looked worse before better.
