Lemon Juice for acne scars
by Calvin Trent

Vitamin C in lemon helps in rebuilding collagen. When you use lime or lemon juice on your scars, the spots get lighter.

Lemon juice is an excellent skin lightening agent. The acid in lemon juice helps brighten your skin and make the scars less visible. It can, in fact, fade away freckles also. If you have swollen pimples, lemon juice can help reduce its redness. Squeeze out some of its fresh juice to apply to your acne scar, everyday! However, just do not step out in sun after applying lemon juice to your skin. It makes your skin sensitive to sunís rays. Do not forget to apply sunscreen to shield your skin. How to use lemon:

Take a fresh lemon and squeeze out its juice. Apply this juice directly on your scars with finger tips or a cotton ball. Alternatively, cut off a thin slice and rub it over your face.

Leave it for ten minutes or longer and wash it off with water. Do this once a day for two to three weeks. If you want, you can also mix honey with your lemon juice to make it more effective.

If your skin is very sensitive, dilute lemon juice by mixing some water and then apply.

You can even mix a teaspoon of lemon juice with two teaspoons of Vitamin E oil and then apply this to your acne scars. Vitamin E is a very good skin softener with antioxidants that protects and improves your skin texture.
