I heard drinking a lot of water can also help? The lemon solution sounds like it would burn! Anyone try it?
Being that I am in menopause and sadly having acne in my 50's because my hormones are cranking I will try these to see what works when I am having a breakout! And does it never fail that it is a major acne breakout when it's a weekend out or a hot date and it is the utmost embarassing time! I would like the acne treatment that clears it up the quickest at my age! Thanks!
