No .it will irritate the skin .and will make the acne worse. So do not apply lemon directly.
You should not apply any thing which irritate your skin.
Hi. I would advise you not to use lemon on acne prone skin. It would irritate the skin further and cause more problems.
Lemon can damage your skin so better not to apply.
