  • Use multani-mitti (Indian fuller's earth) as a mask if you have very oily skin. Add rose water to fuller's earth. This mask will help absorb oil and prevent pimples. Do not over use this mask. You can use it once a week. Avoid using this mask if your skin is very sensitive and dry.

  • Boils Neem leaves in water. Add some plain water for taking bath to this concentrated mix. It is an Ayurvedic remedy for staying away from most of the skin problems.

  • Press ice over the swollen pimple. If you have popped a pimple, do not forget to press ice and splash some astringent.

  • Consult a skin expert before using any product on your skin. If possible always use Ayurvedic and herbal products. They do not have side effects.

  • Wash your face with cold water at least twice or thrice a day and whenever you come back for outside.

  • Rub a pinch of turmeric powder while washing your face at least once or twice a week.

  • Apply a mixture of tomato juice and honey. Leave it for 10-15 minutes and then wash your face. This will help to prevent pimples and also clear previous pimple marks. Do not use this mixture for sensitive skin

  • Prepare a mixture of apple pulp and honey. Apply this mixture on face and let it stay for 15-20 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. It is good for getting rid of pimples.

Comments:   The natural ingredients mentioned in the article are really helpful. Honey and lemon juice is such a great combination for avoiding pimples. Even putting Neem leaves is also good for taking care of any type of skin problem. It is better than using a pimple cream. All my pimple marks are lightening because of lemon juice and honey paste. It is better to avoid pimples than getting rid of it. Drinking lots of water also helps to prevent pimples by detoxifying body. Even other articles on this site are good for beauty tips and skin care. There are lots of simple things that we can do in our daily life to solve health and beauty problems.
