Home Treatment for pimples and scars

Hi, I had been having pimples since two years from now. But from last few months they have decreased. I heard that the regular application of lemon juice and fuller's earth paste would reduce pimples and fade the scars gradually. I am following this method from around 3 weeks. It did reduce the pimples for sometime but now using both these products makes my skin very dry and the breakouts are again taking place. I am applying lemon juice twice daily. I am also using an ointment as prescribed by a dermatologist containing clindamycin phosphate. Plz help!! :confused:

I'd drop the fuller's earth and lemon and concentrate on just the clindamycin as the extra irritation can increase breakouts. To be safe and ensure that the bacteria doesn't develop resistance to the clindamycin, you should add in benzoyl peroxide (BP). Neutrogena on the spot makes a decent 2.5% BP cream.
