No: "Pop" remedies (lemon, honey) are cruel pranks. Topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated is your best over-the-counter treatment and will clear milder cases of acne.

No home-made cures: But one can stay happy, exercise, and live a healthy lifestyle. Healthy diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and leafy lettuce. When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water, green tea. Surely avoid sugars or excess simple starch calories. ...Read more
