Natural Ways to Get Rid of Pimples as Fast as Possible
Considering that is the most common skin complaint, we shouldn’t be surprised that they seem to pop up at the most inconvenient times: the day before that important job interview, right before a celebration you’ve been anticipating, or just in time for the family photo shoot. We’ve all been there! But while pimples are more complex than once thought, we don’t have to simply suffer through the red blotches until they go away by themselves. Here, we’ll look at how to get rid of pimples fast. But first…
What are Pimples? Pimples are pores that become clogged with dead skin cells and oil (called sebum) from nearby glands. When the pores become blocked, they form the small red bumps we know as pimples. Clogged pores can also turn into blackheads (clogged open pores) and whiteheads (clogged closed pores), or worse, inflamed pus-filled bumps called pustules and hard and painful cysts.
Turmeric and honey
Chickpea flour or gram flour is an ideal home remedy for pimples, especially for anyone with oily skin, as it helps reduce greasiness by absorbing excess sebum secretion. Mix 1 tablespoon with water and apply to cleansed skin for 10 minutes. Rinse off.
Multani mitti (Fuller’s earth)
Multani mitti is a rich source of magnesium chloride, which helps get rid of pimples and prevents breakouts. It is known for being a deep cleanser for the skin and also for removing impurities and dirt particles that can clog our skin pores. Mix 1 1⁄2 tablespoons of Multani mitti with water or rose water and leave it on your face for 20 minutes. Rinse off.
Lime juice is anti-bacterial, hence it can help get rid of pimples by killing the bacteria once it’s formed. It is also rich in vitamin C and citric acid, so it can help brighten your skin when used over time. Using a cotton pad, apply directly onto the pimple and leave on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off.
