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.
