Here are some effective ways to get rid of face pimples using natural ingredients
While we enter into our teens with a lot of happiness, because we are on the way to becoming adults, one thing that can really mar our esteem and confidence would be horrible skin. This is because pimples attack. But why do pimples occur? Before we tell you that and how to get rid of it, let us enlighten you on what pimples are!
What is a pimple?
- A small papule or pustule
- A small skin lesion that can be inflamed and painful at times
- Caused by sebaceous glands, worse still if you have oily skin
- When the pores are affected with dirt, grime and bacteria, they swell up and pus fills in
- If the hair base at the follicles where the sebaceous glands have an overactive drive, pimples can happen too
- Sebaceous glands cause the oils to moisturize the skin, and if the pores are clogged there is no escaping for the oils, which leads to accumulation of dirt and dead skin cells that cause pimples, and
- Androgens or male testosterones can cause pimples too when they enlarge the glands!
Effective ways to treat them at home
No matter what, do not pinch the pimples or scratch them or else your face would be scarred for life. There are easy home remedies to remove the pesky pimples from home; time and patience is what we ask you for. Please check out these five remedies using natural ingredients.
1. Cleanse with the white of an egg
The white of an egg is filled with proteins and has the power to boost collagen and elastin for the skin; also helps with cleaning the pores. What you need to do is to crack open an egg and remove the yolk. Froth up the white of the egg and apply it on the face and wait for ten minutes. Wash off with cold water once done and rinse with rosewater. Your skin would be firm and tight, clean and supple. Do this everyday for normal to dry skin and twice a week for oily skin.
2. Lemon honey treatments
To get rid of pimples fast, your skin needs nourishment and cleansing at the same time. Vitamin C from limes can nourish the skin and honey can keep it hydrated. Cut open a lime into halves. Use one half for now and dip it into a tablespoon of honey. Gently massage the lime infused with honey onto the face for five minutes. Round circular motions are needed. Wait for ten minutes and then wash the face. Do this twice a week for all skin types.
3. Sandalwood delights
A tablespoon of sandalwood powder mixed with a teaspoon of rosewater brings in all the cleansing, moisturizing and toning your skin needs, especially if you have oily or combination skin which erupts into pimples. Mix the two ingredients to form a paste and apply it on your face. Wait till it dries up and then wash off with cold water. Once a week is more than enough since the antioxidants are strong enough to work their magic.
4. Cucumber and aloe vera conction
A tablespoon each of cucumber paste and aloe vera paste can bring in all the hydration and cleaning your skin needs, and can eradicate pimples too. Mix the two, apply the face pack and wait for ten minutes once every two days. This is a recipe best for sensitive skin conditions. Wash off after ten minutes and pat the skin dry.
5. Tangerine and curd
For normal to dry skin that has eruptions, we need to fight the dirt, grime, bacteria and grime, which is why a slice of tangerine dipped in sour curd will help. It helps clean the pores and nourish the skin, keeping it hydrated and clean. Wipe the two on the face by dipping the slice of tangerine in the curd and then doing so. Wait for ten minutes and then wash off. Do this twice a week.
