Pimples are small skin lesions or inflammations of the skin, they develop when sebaceous glands (oil glands) become clogged and infected, leading to swollen, red lesions filled with pus. Pimples are also known as spots or zits.
Pimples (acne, zits, spots) affect the skin of the majority of teenagers and a significant number of adults. The presence of pimples on the skin, especially the face, may cause anxiety and embarrassment for a lot of ladies.
Pimples can be treated with different methods including using topical creams, prescribed creams or cosmetic procedures but some simple remedies found at home can cure pimples just as fast without leaving dark spots(a huge plus).
These simple solutions are cheap, natural enough not to cause any side effects and work on different skin types.
Orange peel: Orange peel is another one of fabulous home remedies for pimples. Simply rub the inside of an orange peel on a pimple and the ascorbic acid and Vitamin C will get to work unclogging the pores and reducing the inflammation. For the best results, wash your face in warm water first, so that the pores open up a bit, and don’t use the same piece of orange peel on more than one pimple, or you will just be spreading bacteria around your face.
Ice: Ice has amazing beauty uses as it helps reduce swelling, redness and other inflammation cause by pimples. It also works to tighten the skin pores. Get ice from the freezer (use clean water), wrap the ice in clean piece of cloth and place over affected area of the face or skin. Do this continuously for a few minutes placing the ice over the area for about 15 seconds at interval.
Steam: You can encourage a pimple to come out, all of its own accord, with nothing more than a bowlful of steaming water. Hold your head over a bowl of steaming water and it will soften the skin, open up the pores, and that will allow whatever has blocked the pore and cause the pimple to come out of the skin naturally.
