Homemade Remedies On How To Get Rid Of Pimples , Be Your Own Doctor

Aug 17, 2007
Nothing could be more annoying than to find a pimple on your face one fine morning. It becomes worse if it happens before a big event, which you have to attend.

There are some homemade remedies on how to get rid of pimples, which give quick results and are easy to apply.
Some Homemade Remedies
Always remember never handle a pimple. The pimple becomes more inflamed. Handling spreads bacteria and germs, which caused the pimple, to other parts of the face and may cause scars.

Every half an hour hold an ice pack against the pimple for 2 minutes to reduce the inflammation. Holding a tea bag or a cotton ball dabbed in lemon juice against the pimple can also reduce the inflammation. A dab of toothpaste (not gel) applied before going to bed can also be soothing.

Apply a cream or ointment containing benzene peroxide or salicylic acid on the pimple or your entire face. Do not apply too much as these creams can dry the skin. Do not use it if your skin is sensitive.

If you have no time for remedies and want to hide the pimple then cover the pimple with a flesh colored concealer. The concealer also hides the oily shine.

Wash your face 2 or 3 times a day with lukewarm salted water. Do not use soap as it dries the skin and may aggravate the pimple. Lukewarm salted water removes the oil without drying the skin too much.

You may also use unscented soap or a specialized acne cleanser at home that contains no harsh chemicals such as lye. Gently scrub the skin dry with a soft cloth. Hard rubbing might let out the skin,s natural oil, which helps contain the spread of the pimples.

Whenever possible wear an oil free make up. They prevent pimple build up that cause scars. Remove the make up every night and clean the face with an acne-fighting medicine to remove oil, dirt and bits of make up from within the skin.

Eat lots of fruit and vegetables and drink lots of water. Garlic Juice with 3 parts water is an excellent cleansing agent. Raw garlic applied (rubbed) on the face can make persistent pimples disappear without a scar with repeated applications.

Following these tips will get you results within a few days. If your pimples are a recurring problem then drinking lots of water, proper diet and facial masks are the long-term remedies. In case of major outbreaks consult a doctor for specialist advice.
