Coolest Home Remedies for Pimples


Pimples usually appear on the worst dates: day before the prom, minutes before a romantic date, and hours before a job interview and the night before your wedding. Perfect timing, dear acne, perfect timing indeed!

But hey, before you start getting hysterically petrified we have come up with the coolest home remedies for your pimples that’ll minimize or make it totally disappear. The even cooler news is that these pimple remedies are not only fruity and healthy; they’re also quite available and easy to find. You’ll never miss it!

Here are some quick home remedies to get when you’re faced with a giant zit.

Potato. Rub a slice and leave for about 20-30 minutes. It’ll ease the swelling and will leave it smooth and unnoticeable. Wash up and apply a small amount of concealer make-up and you’re good to go.

Tomato. There is already tomato face-off peeler clay or mask available in the market but tomato juice is just as effective. Wash your face with tomato juice and leave or at least an hour. Wash face thoroughly afterwards.

 Ice. When signs are showing of an impending zit, grab an ice cube and press it on the area. Repeat a couple of times to prevent it from swelling. The coldness will relieve the area and will prohibit it to bloat.

Eggs.  Isolate your egg whites from the yolk and whip the white a little. Either apply on your pimples individually or you apply it on your entire face as a white mask. Wait until it tightens. Wash off with mild soap and water afterwards.

Strawberry. Slice the strawberry in half and apply the fresh part on your pimples. Rub it in and leave for 20-30 minutes before rinsing off. Strawberries are quite good teeth whiteners.

Honey. Honey is good for the skin as moisturizer. To treat pimples, add cinnamon and mix them up until it’s pasty. Spread a small amount over the blemish and leave for 20-30 minutes before washing it off.

Apple. Make a paste out of grated apple and honey and apply on affected areas. Let it sit for 15-20 minutes. The paste is also good as a whole face treatment to regain freshness and get rid of excessive oil and dirt.

Garlic. Peel up a clove of garlic, mush it up and apply in on your pimples. Leave it for a few minutes, 30 minutes tops. It stinks but it leaves a clearing effect on your pimples, or minimizes them at the very least.

Orange. You will need the orange peel, that is. Pound on the orange peels after adding a small amount of water. The citrus will work well with pimples. Rub on your affected areas and leave for a few minutes.

And whatever happens, do not pinch your pimples. We know how tempting it is but squeezing it will only worsen the damage and there’s a high risk for it bleeding. Relax. Pimples are a part of life. Calmly deal with the zit and it’ll be easier. Remember: over stress sometimes lead to even more pimples.
