xCherrybliss’ lemon remedy for acne-prone skin
Like most teenagers, I suffer from acne and I find this method works the best for my skin every single time. It’s a quick fix and definitely one of the cheapest treatments to which anyone from anywhere can have access.
1.) To begin, simply dilute fresh lemon juice with water, I have combination skin, which isn't very sensitive, so I mix two parts lemon juice to one part water. If your skin is more sensitive or this solution is too strong for you, dilute with more water.
2.) Next, soak a cotton pad into the solution for half a minute (or until the cotton pad is fully soaked).
3.) Slowly take it out from the solution and apply it straight to your pimple.
4.) Leave it there for 20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
This is great because you can apply the mixture directly onto your pimple, making it work like an acne patch. You instantly see that the pimple is less swollen and gradually the size of it will also reduce.
