For overcoming acne, people can use traditional medicine such as lemon juice (Citrus

acid that acts as an antimicrobial against bacteria present in acne. This study aims to
determine the influence of lemon juice lime juice (Citrus limon Linn) against Staphylococcus
epidermidis. This research is an experimental laboratory that use disc disk method
or Kirby bauer method with concentration 0%, 12,5%, 25%, 50% and 100%. The result
of the study shows that lemon lime juice (Citrus limon Linn) at 25% concentration already
have a transparent zone around the paper disc about 12.1 mm and have low effectivity to
secure Staphylococcus epidermidis. The high concentration of lemon juice will increase
the inhibitory power produced by lemon juice (Citrus limon Linn).
