Can I use lemon juice to fade acne post marks?

It won't work: Let them fade naturally and do what you must to keep new lesions from forming. If topical benzoyl peroxide hasn't cleared you in two weeks, you are old enough to make an appointment with a competent physician for prescription-strength remedies. Acne is a non-lifestyle-related, serious, chronic disease that's always manageable, and you deserve effective treatment, not made-up internet stuff.

No: Cruel Internet prank. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoids acid has not cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician.
