I’m sure everyone is tired of those acne pimples popping up every now and then. Here’s the thing, you can either treat them naturally or you can visit a dermatologist depending on the severity of your breakouts.
Choose either of them but know this, if you ever as to even touch and fiddle a fully popped up pimple, it will not only leave a scar but it will get worse every day. It usually starts with a blackhead when oily deposits combined with dead skin cells clog up your pores and result in a dreaded papule or pustule . While a regular deep cleanser can be helpful, I’m going to give some preemptive tactics to help fight them.
Here are a few tried and tested remedies that I always turn to when all else fails. Start by taking a few pieces of jaiphal (nutmeg), mix it with some un-boiled milk and apply the paste on the areas affected by acne. Wash it off after about two hours. Other than this, try a mixture of cinnamon powder and honey and apply on your pimples before you go to bed in the night. Wash it with luke-warm water when you wake up in the morning. Do this for fortnight and watch your pimples disappear. Not only are oranges good for overall health, you can use orange peels as a remedy for pimples too. Grind the peels, mix them with a few drops of water and apply it on your face as a mask. You can also mix a tablespoon each of fresh lime juice and groundnut oil and apply it on your face to avoid blackheads. Another tid-bit is leaving fresh mint juice on your face overnight to tame pimples.
Take methi (fenugreek) leaves and make a paste. Apply it every night for 15 minutes and wash it off. I’m sure all of us have read or seen the miraculous effects of turmeric and neem.. so take turmeric powder and neem leaves. Apply the mixture on your pimples. Leave it on your face for about half an hour. Apart from that you can also take equal quantities of rose water and lime juice and apply the mixture on the affected area. Leave it on for 20 minutes. While making a face-wash by adding fresh lime juice to a cup of un-boiled milk and using it on your face can be effective you can also take some tomato pulp and apply it on your face. Leave it for 45 minutes and wash it off. Last but not the least, try a few drops of gulab-jal (rose-water) and mix it with sandalwood. Apply the paste on your face and wash it off after 20 minutes.
I hope these help! Follow them and send me your feedback. Honestly just a little bit of care and time spent for beautifying yourself is probably the biggest recommendation I can give.
Have a Good Day!
