Pimples are annoying. They have the worst timing! You can have gorgeous, clear skin, and then get big giant pimples at very inconvenient times.
Here are 5 amazingly quick, easy, and painless pimple treatments you can try at home to save your special occasions.
Dab lemon juice on it. Lemon juice contains astringent properties that will suck out oil and shrink the pimple. Wash off before sun exposure, as this could bleach your face and make it more sensitive to the sun damage.
Make a paste with honey and cinnamon. Mix approximately 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the honey. Mix to make a paste. Lather to the pimple and leave on for 20 minutes (or overnight)
Wash your face before you start. Crush 6 garlic cloves, then add 2-3 spoons of Manuka honey and a pinch of turmeric powder. Mix and spread onto your pimple. You can swap turmeric for 3-4 spoonfuls of cinnamon and forgo the garlic altogether if you’d prefer.
Yogurt is an amazing food containing lactic acid and zinc, both of which can benefit our internal and external health. Unflavored yogurt that is high in fat is the ideal type to keep skin glowing and help prevent acne.
Tea tree oil is known for its antibacterial properties in fighting pimples. You can dilute 2-3 drops to 1/2 cup warm water and apply to skin with a cotton ball or keep this in roll-ons. You may also combine the healing properties of tea tree and garlic with this spot treatment to fight acne.
