When getting ready for a day out with friends, the sudden glimpse of a tiny ugly round thing often gets us paranoid…I am talking about pimples-the biggest enemy of teenagers and young adults. I am one of the victims too and out of hurry and curiosity to cure them I have used a wide range of creams and cosmetics. But the result was even worse as they had a lot of chemicals in them. So, I decided to try something natural and chemical free by myself in my home. Guess what? The tricks really worked and I was able to get rid of those ugly round things whenever they showed their sign on my face. Now I am going to share a few of my scaring-away pimples tricks. Here they follow:
1. Applying Face-Pack made with a mixture of Turmeric, neem leaves and sandalwood:
Make a paste out of these ingredients and apply to your face, leave it till dry then wash off with plain running or better warm-water.
2. Avoid oily things like creams and all:
The greatest reason of pimples is oily skin so those with oily skins and those who often get pimples on their faces avoid oils and use oil-free natural things.
3. Avoid spicy, oily and junk food:
Pimples not only appear due to oily skin but also due to stomach problems. So avoid junk foods and eat a diet high in dairy ingredients.
4. Wash your face at least twice daily:
Wash your face twice daily with an oil-free mild natural face wash. Use warm water. Wash gently; do not scrub the skin. Do not pop or burst the pimple. It may increase the chance of skin-infection.
5. Applying honey:
Dip a clean cotton swab in honey and put it directly over the affected area and leave it on for half an hour. Then wash the skin well with lukewarm water.
