For those who have a pimples problem try home face sauna. This time instead of peppermint drops add half a glass of lemon juice. If you don’t have a special machine for this treatment you can use a pan with hot water and cover yourself with a big towel. This is an old way to reduce production of oil. To get a visible result it is recommended to do the face sauna two times a week.
