Have you ever popped a pimple (because you couldn’t help it) and it left a dark mark on your skin? Have lingering scars from acne that just won’t go away? Try lemon juice. Lemon juice is a natural alpha hydroxy acid and can be used to lighten pigmented areas of the skin. If you have dry skin, use some fresh juice from a lemon and add a little bit of honey to it. Apply that directly to the scars, leave it on your skin for 20 minutes and rinse off. If you have oily or combination skin, combine the lemon juice with some smashed up cucumber
and apply the liquid portion to your face as a mask. Leave this on overnight and rinse it off in the morning. Either of these techniques are safe to do everyday until you see results.
