Pimples are results of excess oils that are trapped in your pores. They are skin blemishes that can easily put one’s confidence down especially when they appear at the most inopportune time. While there are many things you can do to clear pimples, most remedies take time to effect. Although no treatment miraculously eliminates pimples in no time, there are several quick fixes that can instantly reduce their appearance and/or help you get rid of pimples faster than you thought possible.
Cold temperature helps reduce redness and swelling so get a frozen ice pack or ice cubes right out of the freezer. Wrap in a washcloth or plastic wrap to apply on the affected area. Treat the pimple with ice for a few minutes but no more than 10 minutes at least three times a day and the process will reduce the swelling or inflammation. It will also ease the itching. You can start the treatment even before the pimple gets swollen or once you feel a pimple is beginning to form.
With antibacterial and antiseptic properties, apple cider vinegar can make a great toner. Interestingly, it has the ph level and acidity that can restore your skin’s pH balance. It is strong enough to eliminate the bacteria from the layers of the skin and open clogged pores, yet gentle enough to keep your skin soft and healthy. Mix a 50/50 solution of water and ACV (preferably organic) into a clean bottle or plastic container. Before using your homemade solution, shake the bottle well then pour a little amount onto a cotton ball. Swipe the cotton ball over your face the way you do with regular toners. Let your face dry completely prior to applying your facial routine.
Many people use honey for healing burns and small cuts because it has natural antibiotics and antiseptics that speed up the healing process and prevent infections. With such properties, you can use honey to get rid of pimples. Because it also has moisturizing properties, you can treat your pimples without drying your skin. Using a cotton swab, put honey directly on your pimple and leave it on for at least half an hour. Afterward, wash your face with lukewarm water. Alternatively, you can use honey as a facial mask and make it part of your facial regimen. Even without pimples or before the pimples have the chance to get big, you can dab honey onto your face and leave it on for 15 to 30 minutes or longer. In the morning your face will be soft and supple and there will be less inflammation.
One of the beauty secrets you can find in your cupboard is baking soda. It is a great exfoliant and also helps remove pimples fast. It is also an excellent remedy for blackheads. Simply make a paste out of baking soda and water. Just a teaspoon of baking soda and a little amount of water will do to create a soft creamy texture. Apply it on your pimples and leave on for at least 10 minutes or until the paste dries. Rinse the hardened paste with water.
These quick fixes can significantly reduce the appearance of pimples and help make your skin look brighter. However, they are not enough to maintain a blemish-free skin.
