For Acne, It is suggested that you apply Neem paste, thrice in a week. Apply a paste of Lemon and honey on the face. Wash it of after 20 minutes. Do this thrice in a week.
Please make sure, you do not consume oily food, junk food and you are free of indigestion. Everyday clean your face with rose water before going to bed.
