Easy Home Remedies For Pimples

Jan 9, 2008
It's bedtime, and it's only now that you realize you forgot to go to the store to restock on your acne treatment. Or, maybe that online order hasn't come in the mail yet. Either way, you're stuck, and you need some other solution in the meantime. Well, fortunately there are good home remedies for pimples.

It may come as a surprise to learn that common things you have in your house can help you get rid of pimples. If you try them, you might discover that they work so well that you'll want to switch to these remedies permanently.

If you have ready access to roses, you might want to try a nightly rose steam. This is where you place fresh rose petals in a bowl of hot water, letting them steep. You then hold your head over the bowl with a small towel draped over your head.

Not only will you experience some very soothing aromatherapy, the nightly opening of your pores will help keep them from closing in on themselves, becoming clogged, and forming zits.

An aspiring mask is an intriguing approach to skin care, and one of the more inventive home remedies for pimples. Crush six to eight uncoated aspirin tablets in a bowl and combine them with a few drops of warm water or honey.

Spread this over your face and leave the mask on for at least fifteen minutes. You can gently wash it over with a gentle cleanser once you notice it's starting to flake off, then gently pat yourself dry. This is a good exfoliator, and worth doing a couple of times a week.

A well-known zit-zapper is toothpaste (non-whitening, and not a gel). Put a dab of toothpaste, or calamine lotion, on your bothersome pimple before you go to bed. It will help dry the zit up while you sleep, and your pimple will be less noticeable in the morning.

Plain, simple water is also one of the most effective home remedies for acne. No, you don't put it on your skin, you get it under your skin instead!

If you ever get to watch a photo shoot or a runway show behind the scenes, you'll discover that models almost always have water with them. By drinking a full eight glasses of water every day, you'll go a long way in combating pimples.

Admittedly, there aren't home remedies for pimples that have been scientifically proven to control acne. There are remedies that work for some people and not for others. You'll need to try different ones to see which is best for you.
