Lightbulb lemon juice?? good or bad for skin seem ok!!!!!!!!!!

hello people

I have decided to give using lemons a go to help with my acne...

I take my shower wash my face/body with baby soap, once I have rised off all the soap I step out the way of the water in the shower and grab my half a lemon and rub it over my face and body, making sure i get all the juice out the lemon but not rubbing it to hard on my skin....

once I have finished with the lemon I leave the juice on my skin for a minute, then I step back in to the shower and rinse it off using warm then cold water.

after my shower I apply johnsons baby lotion to my face and body, and before I go bed all I do is cleans my facw with cotton wool pads and johnsons lotion.

anyhows has anyone ever tryed using lemon juice? and if so please let me know how well it worked for you? It seems to be working well for me as it healed a few spots straight up!!!

regards beatboxkid

lemons and lemon juice are extremely drying and can irritate skin, especially the skin on your face which is very delicate.

so everyone is saying that if you drinking lemon juice.. your acne will get better? would it be better to make homemade lemon juice.. just squeeze lemon juice into water?

Mix 1 part lemon juice (freshly squeezed lemons), with 1 part Rose Water, and 1 part glycerol. Its a south asian facial concoction.

Rose water is good for healing your skin and glycerol is a good moisturizer for the skin which is good to balance out the dryin effects of lemon juice.
You can get Rose water from an indian grocery store and pure glycerol from any CVS and most pharamacies.

I've tried it a couple of times and ITS a great exfoliator and makes my face feel great. Nonetheless, It will likely bring everything to your surface and i'm not ready to deal with that right now. A friend of mine does it with just glycerol and lemon juice and her skin has improved a LOT in the couple of months she's used it!!! Used consistently i think it has good potential to benefit the skin. At somepoint, i should heed my own advice. Good luck! let me know how it goes, if you try it.
