Pimples on the face can be painful as well as embarrassing. They may be a result of hormonal changes or excess production of sebum which is a sticky oil substance produced by our body’s sebaceous gland. Bacterial or Yeast infections can also be a cause of pimples.
To get rid of them, people mostly turn to harsh chemicals, mechanical scrubbing and even laser treatment. But are these treatments helpful? Maybe or maybe not. But one thing that they surely do is - upset our budget. Here we bring you a few simple hacks for removing pimples that are not just easy and painless but also budget-friendly.
1. Give Your Pimple An Ice Bath
If the pimple on your face has not yet resulted in pus-filled eruption, then applying ice can help in reducing swelling and redness, making it less noticeable. Moreover, it encourages the oil glands to constrict and push out excess oil and bacteria from irritated glands.
You can use ice by wrapping it in a piece of cloth and holding it on the affected skin area for a few seconds. You can try it out multiple times in a day for better results.
2. A Juicy Touch To Your Pimple
Applying fresh lemon juice can be another great way to resolve a pimple. The citric acid as well as antibacterial properties of lemon act as an antiseptic and kill the bacteria in the gland. To apply the lemon juice to an affected area, use a clean, sterile cotton swab. Do this just before you go to sleep and it will help you to get rid of pimples. But if the spot already feels extra sensitive, dilute the lemon juice with a few drops of rose water to soothe the burning sensation the juice may create.
3. Try Out The Magic Of Honey And Turmeric
While turmeric is a natural antiseptic and helps remove excess oil, honey is antimicrobial. Thus their combination helps in destroying the bacteria and speeding up the healing process. To use this hack, first make a paste of ½ tsp of honey with 1 tsp of turmeric and then apply it to the blemishes. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then wash the face with warm water.
You can also apply tea oil, aloe vera gel or Multani mitti to get rid of pimples. So try these simple hacks using home remedies and have a clear and healthy skin.
