Pimples are the most common problem of everyone. It is a small hard puffed up spot on the skin and is kind of a comedo, it is generally caused due to excess oil in our pores, improper diet (too much of oily food) and also due to the sebaceous glands which produces sebum/blackheads. Pimples occur in various areas of our body but the most annoying of them is when it occurs on our face.
These are the following ways which would help to get rid of these pimples.
1.) USE ALOE VERA
Aloe Vera helps to soothe the inflammated area and reduces the redness, it not only clear out the pimple but also it helps to make our skin look more brighter and gives a glow to your face. It is better if you have aloe vera gel if not then take an aloe vera leaf, rip it off and directly apply the gel (which the leaf contains) on the inflammatory area. Do this 2-3 times a day.
2) USE BAKING SODA
Baking soda can operate either as an acid or as a base, which makes it amphoteric. It is the best natural remedy for getting rid of pimples as it dries the skin by taking all the excess oil which leads to blackheads. Make a paste of baking soda by taking 1tablesoon of it along with water and apply this paste for around 10-15 minutes and then clean it out by washing it with cold water. For faster recovery, it is best if you leave this paste overnight.
Use white coloured toothpaste or mint toothpaste(should not contain gel) as it helps to dry out the skin, coloured or gel toothpaste causes irritation to your skin. For using this method first wash your face off and then squeeze a little amount of toothpaste in our fingertip, now apply it on the puffed area. Leave it for 2-3 hours or overnight, now wash it off gently with cold water. Don’t do this method more than two times a week.
4.) USE LEMON JUICE
Lemon is an anti-bacterial agent which acts as an Exfoliant, which helps to remove the dead cells in our skin. Wash your face and dry it off. Cut lemon in half and then squeeze it in a bowl, now take cotton and dip it into the lemon juice, squeeze the cotton so that the excessive juice drains out. Now apply it on the infected area, gently rub it. Keep this for around 10-15 mins until it dries off. Now wash it with cold water, you can use this method twice or trice a day.
5.) USE AFTERSHAVE LOTION
Shaving sometimes causes razor bumps and for that this method is very useful. Using Aftershave lotion is a very easy method. It helps to reduce the swelling and redness of the pimples. Take a cotton, add some aftershave lotion to it and then apply it on the pimple, do this two-three times continuously and then let it dry for a bit. Wash off after it dries off. This method can be done twice or thrice a day.
