It Works for Me - National Rosacea Society

Lemon Juice

I started using lemon juice, fresh or concentrated from one of those small lemon shaped bottles, every evening on my face. After a quick face wash, I dry my face and then splash little amounts of lemon juice all around my entire face. I put on as much so that the whole face is wet from the juice, and then I let it dry by it self -- that rarely takes but a few minutes.

And the result -- I have never experienced anything like it! My rosacea seems to dry out completely, the skin is smooth and soft, and if there is an outbreak, it only "hangs on" for a day or two. Before I started to use the lemon juice, one tiny outbreak would take weeks to heal. Now it all disappears in no time.

About It Works for Me

Beyond medical therapy prescribed by your doctor, a vast array of other measures have been discovered by patients to help control their condition. It Works for Me is a venue for sharing reports from rosacea patients, as well as physicians, who have written over the years to tell us, "I tried this, and it works for me," in hopes that they might help other rosacea sufferers with their individual cases. If you have a tip to share, please email it to itworksforme@rosacea.org, and it may be included here.

consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
