You can make a simple acne treatment at home with honey and lemon juice that can be used overnight to treat acne in only a few days' time.
Wash your hands with antibacterial hand soap. According to "Foundations of Nursing," hands that aren't cleansed can spread bacteria to the face, which can cause acne.
Splash warm water on your face to dilate your pores, cleanse your face with facial cleanser and then rinse with cool water to constrict your pores. According to "Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice," it is essential to the effectiveness of acne treatments to cleanse skin prior to administering a treatment.
Pour 2 tbsp. of honey and 1 tsp. of lemon juice into a bowl. Microwave the bowl for 10 seconds and stir the contents with a spoon until well mixed.

According to "Handbook of Dermatology: A Practical Manual," it is necessary to leave the honey and lemon juice mixture on the skin overnight to allow it adequate time to treat the acne.
Remove the adhesive bandage gently from your face and remove the honey and lemon juice mixture by cleansing your face with a facial cleanser.
