Pimples are a pain, especially when they turn bright red and leave scars on your once flawless complexion. When you want the redness or zit to subside, all you need is lemon to do the trick. Lemon help eliminate the redness as it contains antibacterial properties to help heal the zit. The citric acid helps to tighten the pores and shed the top layer of dead skin. Lemon juice just might be a pimple’s worst nightmare.
Dip a cotton ball in lemon juice. You can use the juice of a fresh lemon or bottled lemon juice. Dab the juice directly onto the pimples once a day until the redness is gone.
Mix three parts baking soda with one part lemon juice into a bowl. Dab it onto the zits daily. Leave the paste on for five minutes, then rinse with warm water.
Make a facial mask by mixing 2 parts of plain yogurt with 1 part of fresh lemon juice. Put the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well with a spoon. Smooth the paste onto the acne-prone areas of your face. Wait 20 to 30 minutes for the paste to dry, then rinse with lukewarm water. Finish off with a cool water rinse to close the pores.
