The pimple menace…

comment(s)

No matter if you’re in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or even 50s, we can get acne just as easy as any teenager. So, naturally, there are dozens (or hundreds) of lotions and medicines available to treat pimples. But there are also plenty of natural remedies using simple, everyday items you can probably find at home. So, let’s check out some of the most popular options at our disposal…

Your hands: Popping a zit feels satisfying, but will only spread bacteria and oil to healthy parts of your skin. So, let’s stay away from this one, shall we?

Ice: Ice can help reduce inflammation or swelling, so it could help in ridding yourself of nasty pimples. Just remember to wrap the ice with a piece of cloth and stop when the area you’re applying the ice to starts going numb.  

Lemon: Lemon juice can make pimples dry up faster. Always use fresh juice, though; bottled lemon juice often contains preservatives.

Toothpaste: Now, toothpaste can be an effective treatment for acne, but remember: (1) don’t use gel toothpaste and (2) using toothpaste might dry out your skin, which can then cause irritation.

Steam: Exposing your face to the moist heat of steam can open your pores and help you get rid of oil, dirt, and bacteria trapped within… which leads to fewer pimples.

Baking soda: Mix a teaspoon of baking soda with water (or better yet: lemon juice) and apply to skin. Don’t let it sit for more than a few minutes though, and quickly wash your face with warm water afterwards.

Peppermint: Crush a bunch of peppermint leaves to extract the juice and apply on your pimples. Leave it for 10 minutes or so and then wash it off with cold water.
