    Re: Lemon Juice!

    Thanks all! Well, I am now back... and for extremely good news to me the heat and humidity of the coast only caused 2 small pimples in my jawline which disappeared in about a day...

    I really feel blessed with this lemon thing!

    Testamentt... There was a time when I had body acne, specially in my back... however, when I started the lemons all I had was acne on one side of my face... kinda bad in that one cheek though... when I started with the lemons I had a pretty bad initial breakout but that was gone in about a week. The next week I had a couple of pimples and by the third/fourth week I was clear!

    Sorry I haven't been ab;e to update lately, I've been really busy! The lemons have been working really well I'm happy to say. I see a definite difference in my face as it seems to clearer and have a healthier look overall. Am I 100% clear yet? No. Unfortunately, I have this small and annoying flesh-colored bumps on my forehead. I believe I got them from using the indian soap(chandrika) and I'm have a hard time getting rid of them.

    Re: Lemon Juice!

    So I have been drinking one glass of lemon water a day for about a month now and it isn't like it made me skin worse but it isn't that is that much clearer than before either. My skin does feel smoother overall but that could be because I started using Proactiv at the same time. Should I maybe start drinking two glasses of lemon water a day or would that be too much? Thanks.

    Stephanie

    Warning - do not drink lemon juice without it being diluted. It will ruin your teeth. I talked to my dentist about it. He says lemon juice on the teeth will ruin the enamel. He encourages the use of lemon juice though in diluted form and said that it will whiten your teeth! He claims it is extremely heathly as well.

    Stephanie, 2 glasses of lemon juice isn't too much. That's what I used to take.

    I now have only 1 glass though as I find that's sufficient for my skin's needs (half a glass in morning and night).

    Bye,
    AA

    Re: Lemon Juice!

    Mthexuma, yes I agree, make sure you drink the lemon juice diluted. Preferably with a LARGE glass of water.

    Re: Lemon Juice!

    I just started doing the 2 lemon a day in a glass of water thing. How long does the initial breakout last? I seem to being a little worse off than I was before I started.

    Re: Lemon Juice!

    Ratman, the initial breakout occurred in about the first week, towards the end of the first week. It didn't last longer than a few days for me.

    Good luck with the lemons!
