Post Lemon juice and alcohol

Do you think 70% alcohol on the skin is too drying and will only make my acne worse? I've applied it to kill bacteria and dry up the oil, but I don't know if it's going to do more harm then good in the long run.
[p]Also, what do you think about the lemon juice? (Those little containers that are sold in the fruit section of grocery stores for around a dollar.) Does it really exfoliate and lighten dark acne scars?

I think it is better to get an actual lemon. I got a bag of about 6-7 lemons for $1.50. Then I cut a small slice and squeeze the juice into a little shot glass. Then I use my fingers to rub it all over my skin. I let it sit on there for 15 minutes. I also drink a little of the juice if there is some left over.

Before I started using the lemon two days ago, I had little bumps ALL over my face for several days I think which was some kind of adverse reaction to something. Using the lemon, the next day all those bumps were gone. I am not for certain if it was the lemon that helped, but I'm going to do this lemon thing every day for another week or two and see what results I get.

I did too read that lemons exfoliate and might help your acne scars.

I am not sure how bad that much alcohol is on your skin though. Maybe someone else will know here.
