Your quest to get rid of pimples need not be a long or complicated process full of chemical preparations and medicines. There are many natural remedies and skin care habits that will help you get rid of pimples, safely and without expensive medications. Read on for some effective tips to help you finally get rid of pimples.
Skip expensive toners and use one of the following grocery store substitutions as your toner. Apple cider vinegar is a natural antiseptic. That means it will effectively clean out pores and remove dead skin cells just as well as costly store bought preparations. So, don’t waste your money on chemical cosmetic toners when apple cider vinegar is more gentle and less expensive.
Lemon juice is another excellent toner. The acidic nature of lemon juice makes it ideal for sloughing off dead skin cells naturally and with ease.
Use eggs as a mask at least once a week. Egg white, whipped until frothy can be used to reduce oil buildup. Simply spread the whipped egg whites on the acne-prone area and leave for 10 minutes or until the mask feels tight and dry. Rinse off with warm water. You skin will be smooth and oil free. Egg yolks also make a good mask but the fortify the skin with Vitamin A, which regulates the production of skin cells. Take three eggs and separate the yolks. Apply to affected areas and let dry for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and your skin should feel radiant and silky.
Fight acne breakouts with natural topical treatments. Honey is one great spot treatment that most people have in their cabinets. Honey is a potent antibacterial. When you have a pimple, place a dab of honey on the pimple and put a bandage strip over the area prior to bed. The next morning you should find that your pimple is less inflamed or gone altogether.
Toothpaste, the plain white type, works in the same way and can be applied using the same method. Both of these topical treatments cost just pennies compared to the drug store brands.
Use mint essential oil or mint tea to soothe red irritated skin. Mint essential oil can be applied with a cotton ball once or twice a day. For a quick mint tea treatment, simply moisten a mint tea bag with warm water and dab any inflamed areas with the tea bag until it becomes room temperature. Don’t press into the skin just gently pat the red areas of your skin. The mint will calm your red, irritated skin and reduce inflammation.
