WHAT IS A PIMPLE?

Pimples are little skin injuries or aggravations of the skin, and they are swollen sebaceous organs which are contaminated with microbes and afterward top off with discharge. Contrary to popular belief, pimples are not caused by dirt, but the most effective way of avoiding skin irritation due to pimples and acne is by keeping your face dirt-free.

Apply a Cinnamon and Honey Mask
Cinnamon and honey have natural antimicrobial properties. You only need one teaspoon of cinnamon and two tablespoons of natural honey. To make an effective pimple solution, just mix cinnamon into a paste then blend it with the honey. Rinse your face and pat it dry then apply the paste to the blemishes and leave it there overnight.
Neem oil and neem powder are very powerful natural treatments for pimples. Use cotton buds to dab the neem oil directly to the pimples. You can also mix the neem powder with a small quantity of water to form a paste and apply it to the pimples. Leave the paste throughout the night so it can penetrate the skin and destroy all the bacteria in the pimples.
Baking soda is a well-known natural remedy for pimples. You can mix an equal portion of baking soda and water to form a thick paste. Leave the mask on your face for 30 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.
Put some basil leaves in a saucepan and press them against the base of the saucepan with a spoon. This helps the juice to be more concentrated after boiling. Boil the leaves in a cup of water for 2-3 minutes, then leave the basil mixture to cool down before you strain out the leaves. Now, use a cotton ball to apply this mixture to all the spots.
Fill a container with hot water and allow the steam to come in contact with your face for few minutes. Then rinse your face with lukewarm water and apply an oil-free moisturizer to your face after drying. Warm steam can help soften the skin and remove various issues such as dead cells, stubborn blackheads, and left-behind oil and cosmetics that clog pores.
Toothpaste is an extraordinary pimple treatment because it can effectively reduce swelling and inflammation. Apply some white toothpaste to the affected pimple area for at least 30 minutes. You may also leave it on overnight and wash it with cool water in the morning for best results.
Pimples are usual facial issues that people experience from time to time, but it does not mean you have to wait days to make them go away.
