Okay so my older brother used to have slight acne and I came up with a paste that really helped clear up his face. I can't promise it will work for everybody. I just thought I'd share.

Dampen your face with warm water to open up your pores. In a cup mix salt and real lemon juice to make a paste. Gently, and I do mean gently, rub it on your moistened face. A little stinging is normal. This exfoliates your skin while the acid dries your skin. Rinse your face with cool water. Do this once a day but if you feel your face getting too dry then cut back to every other day.

Simple as it is, it worked really well for my brother. Hope this helps!   Smiley

If you don't mind, I'm going to post this in my Yahoo group and let them know about it, its a frugal type group, so they'll save on almost anything, but its a very great friendly group so they'll be thankful for your idea! Smiley

Thanks! They come up with the neatest ideas, I posted the one lady's handbag that used plastic bags from this site, and got a discussion going about using plastic bags for different things, one member while she was typing, was cutting bags up for a project she said. I think its neat to reuse things like that, so I had to pass your suggestion along!

Has anyone tried this yet? I'm afraid to try this on myself or my bf who is breakout prone. It seems it would be too harsh on the face?

if this seems too harsh for your face you can try a juice/fruit with a bit milder acid, like papaya, or you can use a few drops of lemon juice and add enough water to make the paste.

Salt and lemon juice may be too harsh for most people. But there are a lot of things that even people with sensitive skin can use to exfoliate their face.

I have very sensitive, combination skin. I use a combination of fine oatmeal and kaolin clay, moistened with either plain yogurt or milk. The clay pulls out impurities. The oatmeal exfoliates gently. The milk and yogurt contain lactic acid, which also exfoliates, but does so without scratching your skin, like salt will.

If you are exfoliating on a regular basis you'd be surprised how much a gentle exfoliator can do!  Another favorite of mine is Adzuki bean powder. You can just mix it with water and use the paste as a cleanser. It's great for blackheads!
