On-the-spot Zit Removal

Pimples, zits, acne… Whatever you want to call those day-ruining bumps on your face they are a horrible fact of life. Not only awkward teenagers have to deal with zits; alas, they may follow you into middle age. Zits have ruined first impressions on blind dates and at annual sales meetings.

If you wake up with a red bump that only Rudolph could top, try this treatment to dry up pimples quickly. Apply lemon juice several times a day using a cotton swab. The acid in the juice is a natural skin lightener, so the blemish will get less red with each application.
