Lemon Juice

I read in the forums that putting lemon juice in your water helps with acne. But can u just take a teaspoon of lemon juice without putting it in your water, this way your water doesnt taste gross and you get it over with faster…. Is this the same?

  1. No, the lemon juice must be diluted; if it is taken at 100% concentration it will possibly cause you to break out.

  2. i think he was talking about DRINKING..not putting on face

    so no need for dilution! 😀

    I’m talking about drinking.

  4. yeah , i’m talking about the person who asked the question..The person who asked the question was talking about DRINKING, not FACE.

  5. cant u drink a teaspoon and then drink water afterwards??
    like taking medicine..

    it will dilute in stomach

  6. If you drink water immediately afterwards, it should be fine.

    The problem that arises with pure lemon juice is that the citric acid content of the lemon is far too high for your stomach to naturally cope with, which causes your skin to break out. 🙂

  7. Which is better>lemon on the face or drinking it in a water? I used lemon straight up on my face a couple of times when the lemon craze first started and it didnt break me out but it turned my cheeks bright red and after i stopped using the lemon;my cheeks would peel and sting and burn for a couple weeks after that.

    :popcorn

  8. I’ve been drinking lots of cups of hot water with a slice of fresh lemon in it. It tastes much better whis way, (goes kind of sweet tasting rather than bitter), but am I just killing of the Vitamin C do you think? Like when you overcook vegetables; it’s vitually not worth eating them as you’ve cooked away all the nutrients?
    Help.
    Tom any tips on this for me?
    BTW The cups of hot water with lemon are in addition ot my normal 10 or so tall glasses of mineral water each day. (Yes, I spend lots of time in the Ladies Room :crazyeyes )

    Raa,

    I drink ‘warm water’ with lemon, because yeah it makes it taste pretty good, don’t like it cold – it’s too citric. :shock

    Seriously, if you keep drinking that much lemon water per day it will really help your skin. The moment I stop putting lemon juice in, I start to break out a little!

  10. That’s really interesting that lemon juice does that. But does anybody have like some info of like how it works and why? And is fresh lemon better than the one that comes in the bottle?

    Lemon juice detoxifies your system. If you are on lemon juice 24/7, one would imagine the majority of toxins don’t stay in your system long, hence less acne.

    The stuff from the bottle is evil. It has loads of additives that will mess your skin up. Fresh juice only!
