Benefits of Lemon, Honey and Baking Soda for Acne:
Honey is anti-bacterial, killing the germs that cause and spread pimples.
Honey and baking soda both have anti-inflammatory properties, so they work to reduce the redness and swelling experienced with pimples and many forms of acne.
Lemon juice and baking soda both work to exfoliate the skin when applied topically in a home remedy such as this one. They help remove old surface skin cells, resulting in a brighter and softer skin.
Try this recipe and watch your skin glow.

How To Use The Lemon, Honey and Baking Soda for Acne
Spread the mixture onto your face and wash off after a few minutes. When washing off this remedy make sure to close your eyes tightly until it has all been removed, as lemon juice can sting the eyes a little and the baking soda can irritate the eyes. Even so this homemade acne treatment is gentle enough to use daily, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.
