Herbal tips to say goodbye to pimples

By Glowpink Staff   

Many products are there in the market to get rid of pimples but nothing gives 100% accurate results. If you want to get rid of them completely, you have to use herbal home remedies. Read the article below to know about natural remedies to treat pimples fast and effectively and get a clear, glowing face. Most of the tips suggested in this article are made from completely natural and 100% organic products, however, we would strongly recommend a patch test as some people are allergic to natural ingredients.

  • Increase your intake of fluids and fruit juices. This prevents constipation.
  • Green vegetables like lettuce, celery, cabbage, spinach, and other seasonal fruits should form an important part of your diet.
  • You should avoid the consumption of red meat at all cost. Go for fish, lean meat and chicken instead.
  • Sweets, ice creams, colas, chocolates, and hot spicy food are to be strictly avoided.
  • Avoid squeezing or popping pimples. These will lead to scars and increase the area of inflammation.
  • Salicyclic acid and benzoyl peroxide are helpful in the prevention and cure of pimples.
  • Clean your face with a mild soap or special face cleanser specially formulated for acne-related problems.
  • Always remember to use oil-free cosmetics on your face.
  • Boil 100 gm of mint leaves in water and strain the liquid. Mix two teaspoons of camphor powder into this. Refrigerate the solution. Wipe your face with this preparation.
  • You can also try on a face pack which is prepared by mixing fullers earth, sandalwood powder, rose water and camphor. Apply this pack on your face and wash off with cold water, after it has dried. You can prepare a simple face pack to considerably lighten the scars left by the outbreak of pimples. Get together some dried green pea powder, 12 cloves, fullers earth, sandalwood powder, mint powder, rice powder, camphor, and neem powder. Make a paste from all these ingredients by adding rose water. Apply to your face and wash off when dry.
  • You can also apply ice cubes on swollen pimples. This will help to reduce the pain.
  • Blend honey and tomato juice and apply on your face for 10 to 15 minutes. This will help to make old marks left by a pimple outbreak less visible.
  • Never, ever pop the pimples, popping a pimple only pushes the infection further inside your skin. Besides that, it will lead to more pimples and leave an ugly scar behind. So you must make it a point to not touch or pop a pimple no matter how weird your face looks.
  • Stay hydrated, hydration is a one-stop solution for all your skin woes, if your skin is dehydrated, your body will produce more oil to compensate for it. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to get clear skin naturally.
  • Cleanliness is the key, if you want clear skin then wash your face twice every day. Use a face wash that suits your skin type and you are good to go. Follow up with a toner and a moisturizer to get the best results.
  • Have a probiotic, heat boils mainly occur when your body is not able to release the stored heat. In order to treat the heat boils, you need to consume probiotics and let your body digest the food properly. Probiotics are very healthy and loaded with good bacteria that keep your gut and intestines in good health. Have it with lunch to stay healthy naturally and keep health problems at bay.
  • Quit smoking and alcohol consumption, apparently it may sound trendy but it ruins your health in the long-run. Alcohol consumption damages your liver and hampers with the natural detoxification process of your body and leads to tiny zits and bumps all over your face. If you want clear skin naturally, then you must maintain a regular skincare regime.
  • Chose your skincare products wisely, pick up your skincare products that suit your skin type. For that, you need to know your skin type at first. Many people often make the mistake of choosing the wrong skin care product and that also leads to breakouts in the long run.
  • Don’t apply too much makeup. Even if you apply makeup then do it in moderation or apply a primer first and then every other product step by step. Applying a primer will create a thin layer between your skin and makeup, and prevent the open pores from getting clogged.
  • Use a sunscreen lotion, even if you do not step out of the premises of your house, you should always slather on a thick layer of sunscreen lotion on top of your moisturizer to protect your skin from the damage of the UV rays of the sun.
  • Scrubbing your face abrasively is a big no, but that does not mean that you are not allowed to use a scrub at all. Use a scrub once in a week to gently exfoliate your face and neck, follow up with a face pack, toner, and moisturizer to get the best results.
  • You can easily get rid of pimples without burning a hole in your pocket by just using aloe vera gel. All you have to do is apply some aloe vera gel on the affected areas and then massage it in. Alternatively, you can scoop out organic aloe vera gel and then use it on your whole face to make sure that your pimples and acne get cured. If you cannot go through the hassle of collecting natural aloe vera gel, then use a commercial aloe vera gel that has a minimum amount of chemicals infused in it. Also, use an aloe vera face pack once in a week to get the best results.
  • I am sure that you use some garlic cloves while cooking. Generally, we use it as a taste enhancer but do you know that consuming garlic is equally beneficial for your skin? Yes, you read that right, some people also add this magical ingredient in their face packs, however, its best to not add it in your face pack as garlic may burn your skin. If you want clear skin then you need not invest too much time or money, just follow a good skincare regime and maintain a healthy diet and you are good to go.
  • Use an ice cube, if you suffer from recurrent pimples and acne then apply an ice cube on the affected area for a while and then follow up with your usual skincare regime. After cleansing your face, just rub an ice cube on your face, it will help to cool down the affected area and also help to cure the pimple overnight. You can also try to use an aloe vera ice cube, rosemary ice cube, basil ice cube or rose water ice cube to enjoy some additional skincare benefits.
  • If natural home remedies fail to serve your purpose, then your skin is craving for something more. Over the counter medications may be of some help to you. This skincare over the counter ointments are concentrated formulas that help to reduce the swelling and inflammation and ultimately cures your skin. However, do not use any of these medications without professional supervision. These ointments may or may not work for you depending upon the condition of your skin. However, these ointments usually help to cure mild to moderate acne instantly and guess what, you need not wait for too long, you can expect instant results.
  • Use a face pack that contains sulfur, this magical ingredient has been used for quite some time now to heal active acne and pimples. Sulfur is easily available in the drug stores, and you can mix it with other ingredients to make your own customized face packs to suit your need. Just make sure that your face is squeaky clean before applying this face pack. Take a generous amount of this face pack on your face pack applicator and apply it evenly all over your face and neck. Wait until it dries up completely, and then rinse it off with running tap water.
