I bet almost everyone has experienced having a pimple or an acne and we all know how annoying and irritating that feeling was. If only we could do something to remove it at instant from our faces. Although we cannot do that, there are some remedies you can do directly from your homes to make it better faster.
First is using an ICE. Ice helps lessen the swelling of your pimple and could also lessen its redness. It also tightens the skin pores and lets blood circulate better in that area. All you have to do is wrap the ice in cloth, doesn’t matter if its cubed or crushed, and then apply it on the area of the pimple. Do this for a few minutes and just change the ice after a few times since it will melt after a while.
Second remedy suggests using a LEMON. Lemon is rich in Vitamin C and this will help the pimples in drying faster. To do this, squeeze out the juice from the lemon (never use bottled lemon juices for this probably contains preservatives). Put the juice in a container and use a cotton swab for the application. Dip the cotton swab in the lemon juice then directly apply it to the pimple. Do this before going to bed and let it stay overnight. This remedy is not suitable for those who have sensitive skins for Lemon is also known to be acidic.
The next house remedy is nothing new to most, it’s toothpaste. They say that toothpaste can help your pimple dry faster. It is to applied before going to bed and should be left overnight. It works better if toothpaste is applied after icing your pimples.
It may not be your first choice but this suggestion may help. Some people also use Garlic as a home remedy to pimples. Garlics are antiviral, antiseptic, antifungal and is an antioxidant as well. The Sulfur content in such helps the pimple to heal faster. It is done by cutting the clove in half and rubbing it on the pimples and leave it for 5 minutes before washing it off.
