Getting rid of pimples using natural products

Hello everyone,

Today's topic will be about how to get rid of pimples using natural ingredients. Pimples can be a living nightmare for us teens and are formed due to our hormonal changes and puberty. To avoid infections and the spreading of bacteria on your face I will first add a few steps you should follow each time before you start applying the products that should remove your pimples over night.

Then I will state the recommended natural products, and at the very end I will mention tips on how to prevent an outbreak in the future.

Steps before applying any natural product:

1 - Wash your hands with soap

2 - Wash your face gently with warm water

3 - Exfoliate around the pimple to open its pores

4 - Wash your hands before moving on to another pimple

What you can use to treat pimples:

1 - Ice

Place the ice in a cloth and gently apply it over your pimple to reduce its redness and inflammation. Apply ice also when you feel a new pimple forming because that usually prevents the pimple from emerging and growing.

2 - Lemon

Lemons have a highly acidic PH level and therefore the acidity is best in treating pimples. Gently squeeze a lemon in a bowl and dip a cotton pad into it. Remember to use new cotton pads for each new pimple/area so that you avoid the spreading of bacteria. Keep the cotton pad with the lemon juice on the pimples for about a minute.

3 - Toothpaste

Toothpaste is also a very good remedy for your pimples. Take some toothpaste and dab a bit of it on each one of your pimples. leave it on your skin overnight and in the morning carefully peel it off. The mint in the toothpaste dries out the pimple and sucks out any puss; but be careful because if your skin is too sensitive the toothpaste may cause a mild burning sensation and redness. In that case, discontinue the usage
of toothpaste and follow another remedy that suits you more.

4 - Honey & Cinnamon face mask

Put some honey in a bowl and mix it with cinnamon powder. Add just a little bit of water to make it less viscous and then apply it as a face mask for about 2 - 4 hours. This should be repeated more than 3 times a week so that it would completely remove the pimples and reduce their formation.

5 - Aspirin

Crush 2 or 3 aspirin tablets and add a little bit of lukewarm water to make a paste. Take that paste and dab it on to your pimples and keep it overnight.

6 - Garlic

Garlic is known to be very good in removing the bacteria and acts and an antibiotic. Garlic also removes the pimples without leaving any scars and therefore is an ideal natural product for pimples. Gently rub it on your pimple and wait for a few hours. Then wash your face with cool water and dry your skin with a towel.

Tips on how to prevent pimple outbreak:

1 - Wash your face every day with warm water and apply moisturising cream afterwards

2 - Don't EVER sleep with your make up on and don't keep it on your face for long since foundation (whether liquid or powder) can create pimples and outbreaks

3 - Protect your skin from sunlight and use sun screen with at least 15 SPF

4 - Drink lots and lots of water (at least 8 large cups). Water's not only healthy but it moisturises the skin and prevents pimple outbreaks

5 - Do several face masks that nourish and soften your skin

6 - Exercise, have balanced healthy diet and avoid oily junk food
