WANT TO GET RID OF PIMPLES?
Here's some tip on how to get rid of pimples..
Wash your face twice daily. The first step to getting clear skin is to set up a regimented cleansing routine. Buckle down and force yourself to wash your face when you wake up in the morning and before going to bed at night. As tired or busy as you may be, taking the extra few minutes to prep your skin will reduce your acne significantly.
- Wash your face for at least one minute straight. It takes at least this long for all the pimple-causing bacteria to be killed.
- If you have acne on other parts of your body such as your shoulders, back, and chest, give these areas a scrubbing twice daily as well.
- If you wear makeup, never go to bed without washing it all off. Sleeping with makeup on is a surefire way to increase your pimple-count and make getting rid of your acne even more difficult. Use an oil-free makeup remover prior to washing with your regular cleanser to make sure all traces have been removed.
For a pimple that has not yet resulted in a pus filled eruption on the skin, ice can be used to reduce swelling and encourage the oil glands to constrict and push out the excess oil and bacteria from the irritated glands. To use ice to discourage the formation of pimples:
- Wrap the ice in a piece of cloth and hold it on the affected skin area for a few seconds.
- Wait a few minutes and repeat the process.
Apply the ice multiple times throughout the day and the pimple should resolve in just a day or two.
Another great way to resolve pimples is to use fresh lemon juice. The mild citric acid will operate as an antiseptic and kill the bacteria in the gland while working as an astringent to dry up excess oil. There are a couple of ways to apply this remedy.
- Using a clean, sterile cotton swab, apply the lemon juice to the affected areas prior to bedtime.
- For more stubborn pimples, create a paste of lemon juice and cinnamon powder and dab onto pimples for all night treatment. This will help get rid of pimples quickly, but is not recommended for people with sensitive skin.
Honey has long been known as a natural antiseptic and can help destroy the bacteria in the oil glands quickly, helping to speed up the healing process.
- First, use a clean, sterile cotton tipped application and dab the honey directly onto the skin blemishes, leaving it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
- Additionally, you can create a paste with cinnamon powder similar to that of the lemon juice and allow the mixture to remain in contact with the pimples overnight before rinsing.
Toothpaste is a great pimple treatment that most people have access to without having to take a trip to the grocery store. Toothpaste is best used as a follow up to icing to produce the fastest results. It is important to note that white paste must be used rather than gel.
- Dab some white toothpaste to the affected areas of the skin before bed and leave overnight, rinsing with cool water in the morning.
- If you aren’t going anywhere, you can repeat the process during the day, making sure to leave the toothpaste in contact with the pimples for at least thirty minutes to be effective.
Steam has some amazing benefits for the skin, opening up your pores and flushing all the bad stuff out. This works well for people with pimples.
- First, fill a large pot with hot water from the tap and then position your face so that it comes into contact with the rising steam. Under no circumstances should you allow your skin to come into contact with the hot water as this can cause scalding.
- After thirty minutes, gently pat your face dry and apply an oil-free moisturizer over the entire face.
