Pimples are the biggest headache, right? Just when you think your face hasn’t looked better, WHAM! A pimple pops up.
And no matter how many medicines, creams or herbs you apply, you can never completely get rid of them. Besides, you must be petrified by the thought of the scars they leave on your skin.
So how about simple, harmless home remedies?
1. Ice cubes
Ice can reduce the redness, inflammation and swelling of pimples. When applied on the face, it regulates your circulation and tightens your pores. You can use ice cubes or crushed ice, according to your convenience.
Wrap the ice in a piece of cloth, and place it on the affected areas for a few seconds. Wait for a while, and repeat as required.
Steam is great for the skin, especially when you have pimples. Fill a large container with water, and heat it. Now cover your head with a towel, bend your face over the water, and let the steam come in contact with your skin for a few minutes. Rinse your face with lukewarm water, and apply some moisturizer.
The steam opens up the pores and allows your skin to breath. It also helps get rid of the dirt and bacteria that might get trapped in your pores.
3. Egg whites
Egg whites are good for reducing pimples, and they don’t require much effort. Just separate the egg white from the yolk. Using a cotton swab, apply the egg white over your face, then leave it for an hour. Rinse it off with water. The results will be evident within a week.
Cornstarch is great at fighting pimples, and it’s extremely gentle on the skin. So it’s a good option for people with sensitive skin. Take one teaspoon of cornstarch, and mix it with water. Apply the paste on your face, and rinse it off after a while.
Yes, the easiest way to get rid of those pimples is to drink lots and lots of water. Keep yourself hydrated throughout the day, as water can remove many impurities. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water.
So the next time you have a pimple, try these remedies before you go for that pimple-removing cream.
