Lemon is one of the best home remedy for treatment of blemishes. It is useful in gradually discoloring the spot color and lightening the skin. But some people have sensitive skin and can not tolerate the acidity caused by lemon. So it is advised to mix lemon with rose water or honey or turmeric powder to tone down its acidic properties.

Jojoba oil is good for oily skin. Specially for Acne/Blemish prone skin. The reason behind is that Jojoba oil has the similarity of the sebum that the skin generates. Oily skin generates more amount of this sebum but jojoba oil tricks the skin into not producing more sebum and controls/balances the oil production.
