You may consider cutting your lemon in small pieces, refrigerate them, and take one out whenever you need it, morning and evening as we said is fine. The sting of the lemon is nicely tempered by the cold, so the sensation should be more tolerable.

If you have acne on other parts of your body, such as your back or your buttocks, you can also squeeze a whole lemon in your bathtub, fill it up with warm water and soak there for as long as you’d take a regular bath.

Lemon juice can also be used internally for treating acne! Drink a fresh, organic lemon juice with water first thing in the morning.

Wait about 30 minutes before eating anything else, so that your whole system will benefit more fully from it. The lemon will help your body become alkaline and detoxify.
