    Lemon juice is a very effective remedy for acne. Cut a lemon into half and gently rub the open half onto the acne. You will experience a stinging feeling, and this is good as this means that it is working. Lemon contains citric acid and this attacks the bacteria that which causes acne. Afterwards you can wash the juice off your face and apply sunscreen. Citric acid can bleach the skin and puts it at significantly higher likelihood of sun damage.
