no, no, no!

DON'T use lemon juice!

it can be VERY harsh and drying.

tea tree oil is much better!

Instead, try drinking water with some fresh squeezed lemon juice. Its supposed to help your body flush out inpurities. Its also a great source of vitamin C.

Default Try this...

Lemon and orange (pure juicy) is great to skin. It has a lot of vitamin C, which is great to your skin, it helps prevents fine lines and acne. But, don't use only the juicy... Try this: mix a little bit of sugar, dark sugar, and mix with the lemon or orange juice, when the mix turns like a paste, Gently massage this in your face, clean up your face first. This is a great exfoliator and prevents acne. You can use it once a week or every two weeks.
