Topical Lemon Juice Worked for Me
Just wanted to let everyone know that putting lemon juice on my face every night really worked for me. I've had acne for the past 10 years, I was on the pill for a few years and it did clear up, but now that I want to get pregnant and have stopped the pill my acne returned. After I wash my face I soak a cotton ball in lemon juice, put it on my face full strength, and go to bed. Sometimes I put moisturizer over it after 15 minutes. It hasn't dried out my face at all, and I usually have very sensitive skin. My skin is much smoother and soft. I think most of my acne is hormonal since I am in my late 20s, and it cleared up some zits that I had had for months. I still get the occasional zit, but my scars are fading since my skin breaks out less frequently. It may not work for everyone but it's definitely worth a try, and it's so cheap. I have tried almost everything, and it's great to finally find something that works!

Did you squeeze your own lemon juice or just used the kind that comes in the bottle.

I use the kind that comes in the bottle, any brand works.
