I had pretty clear skin before except for that occasional period zit that sometimes left red marks, I researched online and found it effective to treat the marks . So I diluted it (80% water, 20% lemon juice, and the lemons were fresh).I used it 2 times a week at night.At first it didn't effect my skin but soon I began getting large n of pimples only cheeks that left behind such bad scars that I am crying seeing them :-(.It has WORSED MY SKIN and my self esteem too.
I had some red spots on my face and chest from leftover acne that was healing and going away and I thought of using lemon juice to try to lighten them up a bit, which I guess it kinda did but then it's as if it brought all of my dead pimples back to life. I left it on during the night, then the next morning I had a bunch of new angry pimples that weren't there the night before and they were all swollen and filled with pus.
I'd say this is probably nice if your acne has already completely healed and you're trying to get rid of the scarring/blemishes, but if you feel like things are just starting to fade and you don't want to mess it up then don't use this. Though it might be because I used it all over and didn't spot treat and left it on overnight, either way I won't risk it again I think.
Honestly , Lemon is a blessing to me , because rubbing a sliced lemon on your acne scar or pimple , reduces the darkness and makes the pimple pop faster . I had a lot of scars on my legs and it was embarrassing but using lemon faded them a lot. I truly recommend using lemon for any type of face lighting or acne reducing. Lemon and honey will get you right ;) Honey will make the skin glow , and lemon reduces scars and pimples. It's a win win , go AWF people :)
Hi! I'm using lemon only for spot treatment. I'm using it on my pimple, but not all over my face. It has stingy sensation but I kinda like it ðŸ˜‚ because I feel it works. I use with cutted cotton pads and put the juice in. I leave it until it dries. At tomorrow my pimple just dry â¤ Maybe some people said It's too acidic, but I'm not often using this treatment.
a surprising update on lemon juice um well it helped for a little while with the scars and pigmentation but uhhhh it was to harsh and i had stopped using it,sorry to those that may have started using it because of me im so sorry if i had known that i made and account i would've deleted that one and made sure that you hadn't listened to that idiotic being.
5 stars from me. i've had bad redness from years of acne marks and in a short amount of time, lemon juice has really lighten up my skin / post acne marks & i feel a lot more confident as my skin looks sort of "normal" with no redness.
im still learning about using lemon juice topically but i currently leave it on my skin over night. - if you want to try this treatment, i would do some research first. (some people recommend using it overnight, some say 10 mins max and others say use it three times a day ?)
-i am unsure of the side effects so i might not use it as much now but iv'e read something about avoiding sunlight when using lemon juice?
If I use lemon juice on my face, is there any possibility to see pimples on my face as side effect of using lemon juice?
Usually pimples go away by using lemon juice. Does the pimples may again come on the same place after few days?
For me it only lightened my dark spots but that's still a plus :)
Starting getting acne as age 30 was approaching. I was devastated. I turned to Proactive. It worked. However it's 7 years later now & I've started to notice dark spots on my forehead and chin area (old acne areas). I researched the causes and found that the benzyl peroxide is harsh for the skin especially when going into the sun. I found the lemon remedy online and stopped the use of proactive. The LEMON HAS FADED MY DARK SPOTS SOOO MUCH! IN THE PAST 3 MONTHS!. I'm so relieved and thankful, however not the same cannot be said about my annoying acne on my chin and sides of my neck. The acne is still there. I will continue to try and find an alternative to proactive but I'm not going to lie I think about going back to Proactive everyday :(
Bottom line, TRY IT!, It may just work for you. You never know :)
so i started getting acne when i had my first period so around 11 and half years old,
i tried: Proactiv ,St ives ,charcoal ,Clearasli ,Neutroena and mutiple diy natural masks and nothing seem to give me the effect i wanted.
Now i am 13 and currently in highschool.
The things that really made a difference was Crystaderm and of course lemon juice , Both of these made a great impact on me and although i've only been using lemon juice for a couple of weeks i definitely see a difference with how my acne magically disapeared.
One downside of both treatments is the short painful sting you can get if its an open wound but it just shows that when the sting stops the germs may have been cleaned out.
Hi! I have hyper pigmentation and acne scars. My skin type is dry.
First time I tried this: I applied lemon slice's juice onto my scars on my forehead and left it on for about 10 minutes, then washed it off. I did it for a full week, once a day. It cleared my scars significantly, but it caused small white bumps all over my forehead, which went away after a couple of days. Because of that, I didn't really try it again for another couple of months.
Second time trying this: I apply the juice to my scars, and leave it for 10 minutes. I only do this once to twice a week to avoid any sensitive reactions with my skin. I wash it away with soap and water. This method has really helped boost the look of my scars and allow it to fade out quicker. I suggest to squeeze lemon juice onto a small plate and then apply with cotton swab in your specific scar areas, because if you apply it on skin without imperfections, it can possibly cause an unwanted reaction. Do this technique at night.
Good luck! :)
