How to Use Lemon Juice as a Natural Acne Remedy

By Dr. Jaggi Rao, MD, FRCPC, Double board-certified dermatologist

Millions of people who have acne around the world can attest to the healing properties of lemon juice, both applied directly to the skin and drunk as a beverage without sugar. 🍋 Undiluted lemon juice, however, can be irritating to sensitive skin.

While sensitive skin types may not tolerate lemon juice, it’s an interesting and often effective natural treatment for acne.


  • Lemon juice used on the skin can fight inflammation and cause inflammation.
  • The effects of lemon juice are sometimes nearly immediate, especially when the basic problem is oily, clogged pores.
  • Lemon juice works by killing acne bacteria.
  • Lemon juice also works by ✋ stopping signals to the immune system to cause inflammation.
  • The effects of lemon juice are intensified by exposure to the UV-A rays of the sun.
  • People who have dark brown or black skin should use lemon juice, and all other skin treatments, with caution.

What People Who Have Acne Say About Lemon Juice

There are some acne sufferers who tried everything else and found their skin care solution in lemon juice. Here are some typical testimonies. A man in his mid-20’s writes:

“For the last six years I have been battling moderate to severe acne. It had reached the point that I was 24 years old, just graduated from college, and dreading not just job interviews but even going outside the house.

I tried everything I could buy over the counter. I used scrubbing cleansers, vitamin E, vitamin C, exfoliants, humectants, moisturizers, antiseptics, and even deep ocean sea water that cost $120 an ounce.

Then I heard about lemon juice. I was afraid to try it because eating fruit makes me itchy, but I found out that it’s OK when I put lemon juice on my skin. I start with a skin cleanser, and then I lay a warm moist cloth on my face to open up my pores. Then I squeeze two lemons onto second warm, clean, moist cloth, and let it stay on my face ⏲️ for 5 or 10 minutes.

I can’t believe the difference! It took about three months for my pimples to go away, but now I have nearly acne-free skin!”

Another testimonial might go on the lines of this from a 30-year-old woman:

“I tried every treatment I could think of. I used Oxy, ProActiv, Neutrogena, facial waters, and even green tea and honey. Nothing got rid of my pimples, and I started getting these nasty little knots just below the surface of my skin.

Then I decided to try lemon juice. Twice a day I wash my face with Dr. Bronner’s skin cleanser. Then I squeeze two lemons into a clean bowl. I dip a cotton ball into the lemon juice and blot fresh lemon juice all over my face. I wait 15 to 30 minutes, and then rinse my face with warm water.

Lemon juice started to work right away, and the results were amazing! 🌟 All those knots in my skin started to come to the surface, and most of them would come loose with just a gentle nudge. (The writer is referring to exceptionally large whiteheads.)  I knew lemon juice was drawing out the zits, but I had no idea what was underneath the surface.

My face looked totally different after about a week. I’ve been using lemon juice with great results for six months now—and it only costs me about $5 a week.”

Lemon juice is easy, it’s organic, it’s highly unlikely to cause any side effects, and it works—both inside and out. Here’s why.

What Lemon Juice Does on Your Skin

Lemon juice, as we all know, is acidic. Sometimes the whole problem in acne care is that the skin is not acidic enough for all the other treatments we do to work.

Although it’s popular to talk about alkalizing the interior of the body for health (actually it’s only your urine that needs to be alkaline, the rest of your body is in a very right range of pH balance anyway), the surface of the skin is actually healthier when it is acidic, with a pH between 4 and 5. That’s about the pH of lemon juice.

Lowering the pH of the skin makes it a lot less comfortable for bacteria, including the bacteria that the skin needs as part of its natural “clean up crew.”

Acne bacteria in small numbers perform a useful function by consuming excess sebum. But lowering skin pH makes the pores a lot less hospitable to the bacteria, without causing them to send out the chemicals that trigger an immune reaction that result in inflammation and redness on the skin.

Korean scientists studying Korean citrus fruits have confirmed that applying lemon juice to the skin causes acne bacteria to send out less of the chemical messenger that tricks the human immune system into destroying skin cells (and giving the bacteria an escape route to the surface) by releasing a compound called interleukin-8, or IL-8.

Japanese scientists have discovered that a compound called nobiletin, which is also present in oranges, 🍊 stops excess production of sebum, at least in lab animals. Bitter orange, blood orange, and sweet orange juices (that is, juices from sweet oranges such as those consumed in most the world outside Asia, not orange juice with sugar in it), can also be useful on oily skin.

Lemon juice stimulates melanocytes to make antioxidants that protect the skin.

Lemon Juice Can Sting

Many users note that lemon juice stings when it is applied to “active blemishes,” that is, when it is applied to pimples. Normally, anything that causes stinging of the skin is not a good thing if you have acne.

Lemon juice, however, causes a stinging that also slows down inflammatory processes, so that the net effect on the skin is good.

Are There People Who Should Not Use Lemon Juice?

There is one group of people who should not use lemon juice to treat acne. Lemon juice is not beneficial for acne on dark brown or black skin. The reason not to use lemon juice on dark skin is that dark skin contains many melanocytes, cells that make pigment.

Lemon juice stimulates melanocytes to make antioxidants that protect the skin. When they make these protective antioxidants, they also make extra skin pigments. It is possible that lemon juice, like nearly any other “stinging” skin treatment, can cause long-term or permanent darkening of already-dark skin. Any darkening of the skin caused by lemon juice will be more severe when the skin is exposed to the sun. Lemon juice compounds are especially active in the melanocytes when they are activated by the UV-A rays of sunlight. Dark skin will not burn, but it will darken even more when exposed to sunlight after lemon juice treatment.

Lemon juice does not work for everyone. If you would like to try a more traditional acne treatment with a money-back guarantee, 👍🏻👍🏼👍🏿 consider Exposed Skin Care.

I have mild acne and I have tried lemon juice for acne. For me it worked wonders. First, I don't have sensitive skin. It's tough. The lemon juice didn't bother me. Second, I applied it at night and left it on my face until my morning shower. Sometimes it felt sticky on the pillow. In one case it literally cleared up a zit overnight. The zit had just formed due to stress and was relatively small. I applied the juice directly to it one night and by morning it was gone.

I've had acne ever since middle school and have tried so many different things from benzyl peroxide to using some type of alcohol from neutrogena. It's only gotten worse and has even started appearing on the very side of my face which had never happened before. My mom likes using natural things so she suggested Lemon juice to me. She basically cuts a lemon in half and has me put it directly onto my face. I don't rub it into my skin but just put it all over.. For me some 'fresh' zits will sting, but it actually itches for me. The itching only goes on for a minute or two and then it's fine. I leave it on for a while and then wash my face. I can see it helped a bit, it's also helping with acne scars! I'm gonna try to keep using this method, hopefully it works! Fingers crossed!

No it's a 100% natural! So it doesn't have any effects :) But if you don't like the feeling of itchiness on your face then get a papaya and take a cotton swab then, put it on your pimple. Or you could mash up the the papaya and make a mask. This shouldn't sting, if it does take it off imediantly and cleanse your face.

Like one of the comments said, it will draw out the bacteria as with most treatments, this will happen. I was freaking out because it happened to me. I was told by an aesthetician to us it to get rid of acne and to lighten my acne scars. I am a caramel colored person with a lot of yellow in my skin. I've been using the lemon and cutting it into slices. I squeeze the lemon and rub it on my face, then use a moisturizer after it dries. It does itch for a minute and will sting open acne, but it has made my skin look so much better and even an undereye circle scar is gone (it was not long, but it bothered me) I am 53 and suffered with acne since I was a teen. When Im stressed, I break out. I recommend giving this a try. It also exfoliates which can make some hard scars much softer.

I just started using lemon juice on my face and it gives me sting. Then upon research, I found this. I'm not that dark but I'm not also fair. It's like brown. I wonder if I should stop using it already because my purpose of using it is to have a pretty skin and that would be discarded if it's not suitable for my skin color. :(

I hate spots Reply

Ive been reading alot about lemon juice so i decided to try it about 2 days ago. Unfortunately i didnt have fresh lemons so i used bottled lime juice (please tell me thats safe on the skin) anyway, in like 20mins, a brown spot i had next to my lip became 40% lighter and i was really pleased at the results. But the next day when i awoke the spot had returned to its original darker colour that it was before i used the lime juice. I kept promising myself to by fresh lemons but i havent been able to as yet. But i was wondering if the reason for my spot returning to the original color was either because of the bottled lime juice or my skin color (i am asian-indian, im a light tan) And i do live in a very sunny humid country, but the weird thing is, i havent been out into the sun since i first used the lime juice

The acid in the lemon will temporarily imflamme a pimple (visible or not) so there may be areas of redness where your skin was experiencing minor acne or irritation. one or twice a day should be okay (depending on your skin type e.g oily, dry) for atleast 3 months to see noticeable results.

Why are so many of you black/brown skinned people confused?? The article clearly states that using lemon juice on YOUR skin will turn it darker... Most people with darker skin do not want their face to become darker. Also, you could possibly look odd with a face that is a darker color than the rest of your body. My personal advice: if you are already very dark, then don't worry. Use the lemon juice; it works wonders. If you are worried about your face getting darker, use some other product to clear acne. I used rubbing alcohol on my oily skin, before I discovered lemon juice.

Yep! it should be fine on any skin type/colour... depending on how oily/dry your skin is, try twice a day (once in morning and once at night) but if there is irritation or excessive dryness then stop and then only use once a day. lemon juice will normally take at least a couple months to see results :)

Everyone with the complains of lemon burning and itching, I don't mean to sound like a know it all, but come on! lemon is going to burn. You are placing acid on acne and most of us that had bad acne, we touch our faces which not only keeps the acne active but feeds it immensely. Bacteria is just sitting on your faces. The burn and itching is VERY common and the skin tone, well I think they are putting that warning out there for overuse. NOW... I love what lemon does for acne and clearing scars and dark spots, but I found that the actual lemon is most effective. If your skin is really sensitive then only use one treatment once a night (while you sleep) or once every other night. Night time is going to be the most effective time because your body is at rest which helps the treatment work better. Yes everyone may be different but the lemon will help to an extent. Now for those people with returning skin issues, this is more likely due to internal issues, which is treated by actual physicians. I had a friend in high school who unfortunately never got the girl because acne COVERED his entire face and he tried everything thing, poor guy. But then his mom took him in and found out that he needed to be treated from the inside out. He started clearing up and man I tell you guys he was so handsome! I was really happy for him because he exuded such confidence afterwards. Good luck to you all, and remember do not overdo it just because the results are quickly noticeable, QUALITY NOT QUANTITY.

I struggle with acne cysts during that lovely time of the month, sometimes I get one other months I can get what feels like 100.. I started using lemon juice during a cystic breakout (a really bad one!) My results were amazing, not only did it clear up the cysts marks I had from previous breakouts, but it cleared the ones just starting to come to the surface. My skin is bright and clear. I use it daily in the morning before I wash my face. Pure lemon juice (real lemons not from a bottle) rubbed all over, leave on for 15 minutes and rinse. I've tried everything you can buy including proactive (which made it worse).. I've probably spent 1000s on creams and face wash etc.. who knew a dollar lemon would do the trick. I highly recommend it, stick with it for a month and you will be plesently surprised

I had her start with lemon juice today. I'm very optimistic after reading so many great results. She has spring break right now and I am hoping she goes back with clearer skin.

How did things go, did she clear up during the spring break? And if it did, is she still doing it?, as its summer break currently...
