Aug 17, 2007
You might not be aware but the solution to your pimples lies right in your home. Have you ever asked the elder members in your family on how to get rid of acne? You will be surprised with the variety of tips on how to get rid of pimples at home they have to offer.

The best part is that you can do all this with the things available at home and do not incur any extra cost but the results are always spectacular.

Simple Things To The Rescue

You will not believe what ordinary everyday things can do, for example take the common toothpaste (not the gel type), dab a little of this on the acne and you will find how effectively it dries out your pimple.The same effect can also be brought about by holding a used tea bag or a cotton ball drenched in lemon juice.

You could make a solution of camphor lotion, honey and tomato juice and apply it on your face and keep it for 15 minutes. Wash it off with luke warm water and follow it up with a cold water rinse, it helps to control acne.

Groundnut oil mixed with an equal amount of limejuice if applied on the affected part of the face prevents the formation of pimples. Again, glycerine mixed with borax powder, water and camphor lotion also makes an effective acne controller.

Turmeric plays an extremely important part in Oriental homes because of its myriad curative properties. One amongst them is its power to treat acne especially when it is mixed with whole-wheat flour. Another method is when it is mixed with sugarcane juice.

Oriental cuisine is also fond of garlic because of its many curative qualities. Apart from many ailments it also has the power to prevent one of pimples. You could cleanse your skin with a mixture of 3 parts water and garlic juice and follow it up by applying raw garlic on the pimples. This not only cures the acne but also rids the skin of any blemishes caused by it.

Another method that says bye bye to your acne is a mixture of fresh limejuice, glycerine and boiled milk. This prevents pimples and also gets rid of blackheads. The juice of raw papaya could also be applied for preventing pimples.

One thing you could do to control acne in general is to wash your face with lukewarm salty water. This helps to keep your face oil free and hence pimple free.

Lastly, do not forget to lead a healthy lifestyle with a minimum of stress, drinking lots of water and maintaining a balanced diet to help these natural remedies to take full effect.
