According to Dr Aakriti Mehra, dermatologist at Enhance Clinics, the follow applications may be applied to further assist in fight off that acne.

If you want to go straight for the most potent approach, I’d say your best bet is to start using with a simple lemon juice application. Here’s how to do it. Take a small bowl and fill it with freshly squuezed lemon juice. Take a small piece of cotton and soak it in the lemon juice. Using the cotton swab, you’re going to want to apply the lemon juice to your skin and leave it on their for about 10 – 12 minutes. Leave it on your face until the juice completely dries. Once dry, gently rinse your face with cold water and pat your face dry. Do this once each day until your acne clears up.

Lemon and Chickpeas
For this procedure, you’re going to need some chickpea powder and lemon juice. All you need to do is mixt the two ingredients together until it becomes a paste like substance. Once it’s a smooth paste, you’re going to want to apply the paste to your face, taking care to apply it to the areas affected by acne. Leave the paste on your face for just a few minutes. Rinse with warm water and proceed to pat your skin with a clean towel. In the event that you’re face has become extremely dry from this procedure, I’d suggest that you apply whatever daily moisturizer you’re currently using. Below you’ll find a video which shows someone making this mask. They decided to include one additional ingredient but you’ll get the idea.
