Can You Use Lemon Juice To Win the War Against Acne?

How Lemon Juice Can Help Stop Acne Breakouts

I'm not a big fan of sour stuff, so lemons aren't usually my cup of tea. When it comes to fighting acne, however, you can't ask for more powerful stuff. Lemon juice is a wonderful acne treatment, both internally and externally. If you haven't yet put lemon juice into your anti-acne arsenal, here are some things you need to know...

Cleanses From the Inside Out

Lemon juice is a great cleanser, and I'm not just talking about an external cleanser. By putting lemon juice into your water and drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day the lemon juice can help clean out your system, which means less toxins, which means less acne breakouts.

When Breakouts Happen

You could drink lemon juice every day for the rest of your life and still have the occasional acne breakout. Especially if your a woman who's having hormone fluctations at a certain time of the month. At those times, nothing can totally prevent acne. Lemon juice can, however, act as a wonderful topical treatment at these times.

How To Treat Your Skin with Lemon Juice

If you do suffer an acne breakout, soak a cotton ball in lemon juice and apply the lemon juice to your blemishes. The alpha hydroxy acids in the juice will get rid of the dead skin cells and will flush out your pores. The juice also promotes elasticity and faster healing.

Bottom line is this - if you have acne, you should definitely have lemon juice in the fridge. After all, a lemon a day keeps the dermatologist away!
