Pimples or acne is a relatively easy skin problem to solve. There are a lot of solutions to use if you want to get rid of pimples effectively. The key is finding a treatment that suits you best; that often begins with understanding the kind of pimples you have and the actual cause of the issue before choosing a suitable treatment to use.
Aside from over the counter medications and professional pimple and papule treatment options, there are also home remedies you can try if you want to get rid of pimples using natural ingredients. In this article, we are going to go over the simplest home remedies for acne you can try.
Your Own Face Wash
Keeping your face clean is one of the best ways to treat (and prevent) acne. You want to wash your face twice a day using a gentle cleaning solution to keep the skin clean and free of bacteria. While there are a lot of cleaning solutions you can pick up at a nearby drugstore, you can also choose to make your own face wash using simple ingredients.
What you need is a ¼ cup of warm water, one teaspoon of baking soda and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Mix the ingredients in a bowl and you have a face wash ready for use. Wash your face using warm water, and then use the face wash mixture to clean pores and close them again.
Garlic is one of the best ingredients to use if you’re suffering from pimple problems. It contains a lot of nutrients that are good for the skin, plus it is famous for its antibiotic properties. You don’t need complicated recipes to treat pimples using garlic.
Start by peeling and mashing the cloves of fresh garlic. Fresh garlic usually contains more moisture and will be a bit wet when mashed. You can then apply the mashed garlic to your pimples. Avoid the eyes; you also don’t need to apply the mashed garlic to the whole face, only on the pimples.
Leave the mashed garlic on your face for 10 to 15 minutes, and then use the face wash we talked about earlier to clean your face. You can also use warm water and a clean cloth to wipe away the garlic from your face. Do this regularly every night and your pimples will soon go away without leaving a mark.
The Honey Mask
There are a lot of other ingredients you can try if you’re trying to treat pimple issues. Honey is a good one to try. It is famous for its richness in antioxidants and it is very usable as a skin treatment (not just for pimples).
Mix apple and honey to create a mask and apply the mixture carefully. This is a solution you can use as a pimple treatment, as well as a general rejuvenating treatment for the entire face. Leave the mask for around 20 minutes and wash your face carefully before rinsing it with cold water.
All of these home remedies work great for treating pimple issues. The next time you see pimples on your face, use the treatments we discussed in this article as a first-aid treatment.
