Home remedies for pimples

Hey everyone,

         Pimples are like the worst enemies of a person. I have an oily skin and I get breakouts every once in a while. There are a few home remedies of pimples and acne which work best for me. So, I thought I would share them with you all too.

1. Lemon juice- Lemon juice is known for its exfoliating benefit. It is also very good for diminishing pimples, acne and scars. Mix it with rose water, taking equal quantities of each, and apply that liquid on the effected area. Keep it on for at least half an hour and wash with normal water. Do this for 3-4 weeks for best result. You can also mix it with groundnut oil and apply it on the effected area for half an hour for 3-4 weeks. If you want, you can also make a paste with it by mixing it with either sandal wood powder or cinnamon powder and apply in the manner. Personally, I prefer the sandal wood powder more. You can also apply lemon juice directly on the effected area but I would not encourage that much as it can be really drying and harmful to your skin.

2. Honey- Honey has anti-bacterial properties which helps fight acne and pimples. At the same time it is a very good cleanser and moisturizer for your skin. Here are a few ways you can use honey to get rid of pimples. Mix 3 table spoons of honey with one table spoon of cinnamon powder and apply it on your face and leave it on over night. Do this every night for at least 2 weeks for best results. You can also mix it with grated apple and apply on the effected area.

3. Turmeric- Turmeric powder reduces pigmentation on your skin. It also helps maintaining the elasticity of your skin and prevents stretch marks. It is also one of the best ways to reduce pimples and acne. You can mix turmeric powder with coriander juice or mint juice or both to create a thin liquid. Apply it on the effected area regularly for best results. Or make a face mask by mixing turmeric powder with curd and gram flour.

4. Oils and gels- There are various types of oils and gels that can be used to cure acne and pimples. Tea tree oil, aloe vera oil and aloe vera gel are one of them. They have antibacterial properties that help fight acne and pimples. There are various brands that have products with these ingredients in it. I feel, the body shop has the best range of tea tree oil products. Marigold and wheat germ oil are also very good for reducing pimples and acne.

5. Garlic- Garlic fights ageing, removes blackheads or whiteheads and also helps reduce pimples and acne. You can rub freshly peeled garlic directly on the effected are or you can also ingest it, but don't overeat it. It might also have side-effects.

6. Pulps- Pulp of ripe tomatoes are very good for curing pimples. Apply it on the effected area and leave it on for at least an hour everyday for best results. Cucumber and papaya pulps are also very good. Apply it in the same manner as tomatoes. You can apply raw juice of papaya as well on the effected area in the same manner.

   So, that's all on home remedies for pimples. I'll see you in my next post. :)
