On waking up, we find a zit on the forehead or near the lips and the first thing which pops up in our mind is to break the glass. With the number of people increasing who get affected due to acne and other such skin problems, everyone has come up with a new way to treat them. When you Google the steps and methods, you can have thousands of procedures. As we call it, one or the other will definitely work on our face. Otherwise the aunty next door is always there to give her advice as she went through the same phase 1 or 2 years ago. In a similar manner, I am going to give you a brief 10 point summary on the effective home remedies which can be worked upon while you are fighting with those pig headed pimples. Of course these are not medically validated and do not guarantee their extinction. But they can be tried before you rush to the doctor and spend some bucks.


1. Neem face pack

Neem face pack

When we speak of home remedies, neem is the first option which comes in our mind. It is the best one too. Known for its purifying properties, neem acts as an anti-fungal and an anti-bacterial agent. It is known for its blood purifying properties since ages. It cools your skin and is the best possible remedy for pimples. In fact it prevents them. Grind a few fresh or dried neem leaves and apply them on your face as a pack. Forget the artificial. Do not go for neem face wash and face packs. They may aggravate the situation. Speaking from personal experiences, I have tried them and later regretted having used them. A paste of neem leaves and turmeric when applied on the face for about an hour is considered to be a good and fast treatment for curing pimples.


2. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is magical in nature. It can fight almost anything in this nature. You name it, aloe vera has it. My mother has took it on her own to keep cultivating pots of aloe vera plant at our place. Can you think of the fact that it has continued as a medicinal form since the start of this century. It contains polysaccharides which kill the acne causing bacteria. It also helps to remove the excess oil and dirt from our skin surfaces. It heals your skin faster and you basically scar less. Moreover the gel can be used for other purposes as well. Such a marvel in a cactus!


3. Tomatoes


Take some tomato pulp and apply it on your cheekbones. I assure you they will start to glow after a week or so. Personally tried and tested tomatoes are very helpful in reduction of pimples. If you are going to apply it regularly, then you surely will be getting rid of the acne and pimples problems. Leave it for about an hour after you apply the pulp.


4. Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar

The magical liquid which can be left on the face for a long time, try it for ever! You can wash it or leave it like that. You can also prepare a mask by mixing apple juice with honey. You can use grated apple pulp if the juice is hard to extract. This vinegar regulates the ph level of your skin. By balancing the ph level, it helps in detoxifying your skin. When there are lots of toxins in your blood, you detoxify your system. In a similar manner, your skin needs some detoxification too. Apple cider vinegar is also used to wave off warts.


5. Aspirin paste

Aspirin paste

Crush an aspirin tablet finely. Mix it with some cold cream which you use it frequently. The ratio should be one tablet per tablespoon of your cold cream. Spread it evenly on your face. Keep in for 3-5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly after that. It helps in reducing blemishes and acne marks. It also lightens your face. You can also try the aspirin and honey facial mask.
