9 Simple Home Remedies For Pimples by Kingclickmedia: 6:26pm On Jun 16, 2013
Generally [size=30pt]pimples[/size] are caused due
to increase of the hormone
levels in the body, which can be
mostly seen in teenagers.
Commonly pimples are occurred
on the face, scalp, back and chest
areas of the body. The main
reasons behind cause of acne
are improper diet, high stress,
sleeplessness and very busy
lifestyle.
Here are the natural home
remedies for curing pimples/
acne:

1. Redmond Clay:
Mixing Redmond clay with small
quantity of water and lavender
oil gives you a clay paste which
should be applied on the areas
where you find pimples but not
all over the face. This helps your
pimples disappear overnight.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar:
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) works
as a toner and helps you clear
pimples from your skin and also
improves your complexion.
When applied, it softens and
exfoliates your skin. But
remember to dilute it before
using it on your face. Apply on
the blemish once or twice every
day for better results. After
applying, do not wash it off
unless you actually want to.
3. Lemon Juice:
Dirt that is accumulated on the
pores of skin generally causes
pimples. The acidic property that
is present in the lemons will help
in cleaning the dirt on the skin.
Lemon juice should be applied
over the pimples and should be
left for few hours which cures
the pimples, lemon juice mixed
with equal ratio of rose water
also treats pimples.
4. Mustard & Honey:
Mustard is a good source of
natural salicylic acid. It works
wonders in treating acne or
pimples. It also contains lots of
fatty acids, omega 3, vitamin C
and zinc. All these components
are good for your skin. For
treating blemishes you can use
mustard or mustard powder. Mix
1/8 teaspoon of mustard
powder with 1 tsp honey and
apply it as pimple mask. Leave it
on for 15 minutes and then
wash it off.
5. Green Tea & Ice Cubes:
Rolling ice cubes over the
pimples lessen the swelling and
also the redness. This gives you
relief from the pain caused by
pimples and also treats them.
You can even use frozen green
tea cubes over your blemish for
soothing effect.
6. Tomatoes:
Tomatoes act as a very good
astringent and they are rich in
antioxidants. Tomato facial
masks help you in healing acne
scars quickly. Cut a tomato into
two halves and rub the juice
over a blemish or eruption once
or twice every day. Do not over
use the tomato juice directly on
the face as it may cause dryness.
So, just treat your pimples with
tomato juice or dilute it till it’s
thin and then use it careful.
7. Essential oils:
Essential oils such as tea tree oil
and lavender oil are good for
your skin, if they are used
sparingly. Usually you should not
use undiluted essential oils
directly on your facial skin.
These oils should be used rarely
as you may get an itchy reaction
because of excessive use. Avoid
rubbing undiluted essential oils
on your skin.
Take a drop of tea tree oil or
lavender oil and apply it on an
awkwardly large pimple or
blemishes. But keep in mind that
it may not work well for
everyone.
8. Egg white:
Egg white contains 10% of
proteins, vitamins and minerals
and about 90% water. The
drying effect of egg white will
soak the excess oils and
expedites healing of your
pimples or acne. You can take a
dab of egg white and apply it on
your blemishes or you can mix
egg white with lemon juice or
honey for better results.
You can also apply little lemon
juice or garlic juice on the pimple
and cover it with egg white to
get rid of pimples.
9. Garlic:
Garlic is another wonderful
natural remedy for pimples. It is
packed with anti-microbial and
healing properties, which helps
you in killing bacteria faster than
you think. Dab a bit of garlic
juice on the affected area or
your pimple and let it rest for as
long as possible.
