Lemon Juice No Longer Working?

Recommended Posts

I once had a breakout when I was about 16 and when it had gone past it left some bad scarring. I then found out that lemon juice works to fade the marks. So I started using it and it really worked great, my marks faded completely in no time. Now im 18 and unfortunately broke out badly again. But this time for some reason the lemon juice method is no longer working. How is this possible?

PS: I have brown skin

Sometimes the marks are erythema, sometimes hyperpigmentation. Lemon juice would not help with erythema, but it would with the hyperpigmentation. It just depends on what type of mark you have.

Try to increase the amount of lemon juice you're using on your skin or apply them more often. If that won't work, try a vitamin C gel, many people said that works. Good luck. :)

@siannay I didnt know that was possible, I hope thats not the case =\

@ColdHearted hmm maybe Ill try that, or even get a new bottle. But I can't do the gel though my skin gets irritated by it

Lemon juice is generally more effective at treating mild acne, If you have had a worse breakout then it may not work. As with all acne treatment it comes down to trial and error and finding what works for you. i would suggest trying something stronger. If it doesnt work, applying more will not have a different effect
