Lemon Juice for Acne: A Natural Treatment

You gonna squeeze me?!

Finally, something free that actually works! Let’s jump right in and learn about why you should try lemon juice for acne, a natural treatment. We will also take a look at exactly what methods work best and hopefully save you some time with having to do more research.

What’s a lemon

A lemon is the big fruit you see in the image above! Obviously it’s not that big, but as you can see, it’s a beautiful oval shaped fruit that grows on trees. It comes with a yellow textured outer peel and inside it has a bunch of divided pie like pieces. The juice from a lemon is around 5 – 6% citric acid, which is what gives it that lovely sour taste.

How can lemon juice help my acne?

Well now that you know pretty much everything you need to know about lemons (just kidding) we will take a look at how lemon juice for acne works. Lemons contain a very unique form of flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Flavonoids (also known as Vitamin P) are a type of plant metabolites. Without going into a whole lot of mumbo-jumbo about what flavonoids are, all you really need to know is that they are well known for their antioxidant activity.

One of the great benefits of antioxidants is that it prevents and treats acne by circumventing free radical damage that harms the skin; in short it fights off inflammation which causes the redness on your acne as well as new pimple breakouts. They also help to protect the skin in many other ways that aren’t necessary to go into, such as fighting off toxins and protecting your skin from sun damage.

Using lemon juice on your skin

So you’re finally convinced that lemon juice for acne can help you on your acne-free journey? Well then let’s figure out the best method that works for most people. I will do the research for you so that you can skip right to the healing benefits. Enjoy!

Drinking lemon juice

The fastest and easiest way to start noticing the healing benefits of lemon juice is to simply drink it. If you are still getting acne outbreaks more than once a week, you can start getting almost immediate results from just drinking lemon juice diluted with water daily. If you are brave, you can simply squeeze one or two whole lemons into a glass and chug it down quickly. If you want to take the “safe” route, add as much water as you feel comfortable and drink it through a straw.

The reason I recommend most people use a straw is because lemon juice is acidic and MIGHT cause some harm to your teeth enamel. However this is unlikely unless you are rinsing your mouth out every morning with pure lemon juice. To be on the safe side, rinse your mouth out with water after you are done drinking your lemon juice.

Putting it on your face topically

This can be as simple as doing your normal daily cleaning routine, and then once you are finished use a cotton ball or pad to put a light layer of lemon juice on your face, acne, scars, blemishes. Lemon juice is a known safe natural treatment. But if you notice any bad effects or think you might be allergic to lemons, then play it safe and do some spot tests. Just rinse it off if you feel any negative reactions.

One warning though, if you decide to keep the lemon juice on your skin as a mask type of thing, then stay out of the sun for long periods of time. The juice will make your skin sensitive to the sun and could cause unwanted effects, so wash it off before you go outside!

It can activate the energy of your skin, accelerate regeneration, repair and improve the power of defense, and rebuild the skin texture and density.

    seems like you’ve done your homework – thanks for the tips about the lemon juice – tried it on my two teenage boys and it works – I won’t do this daily though – let their skin rest and do it basically every other day or when they have a breakout – I must say though I don’t really care for the name of your website – you should’ve picked something other than “pimp”.
