Most of us have gone through a certain period in our lives where we have been attacked by pimples. Nothing seems to work and anything you do to cure it only seems to make it worse. The truth about pimples is that more than external factors, what is inside your body are more important.
During puberty, boys and girls go through some significant hormonal changes which can manifest themselves on one’s body. This includes growth of facial hair in men, menstruation in women, and of course pimples for both genders.
Why natural over chemical?
Although there are many chemical medications, both oral and topical, that have strong effects on pimples, they are mostly symptomatic, not causal remedies. Some of the chemicals are very strong and can affect the natural quality of the skin while treating acne. Therefore, it is better to try some natural remedies instead.
Natural acne solutions at home
One of the most natural remedies for pimples and acne, or in fact, any other skin problem, is drinking water. Not only does it flush out toxins and hydrate your body, both internally and externally, but it also makes your skin glow and even improves the quality of your hair.
There are various natural products such as honey, turmeric, camphor and lemon which work wonders on acne and allow them to dry up. However, before using any of these elements, you must do a patch test on your skin to ensure that you are not allergic to them.
Mixing sandalwood powder with camphor and rose water and rubbing it gently on the acne prone area of your skin can heal pimples significantly. You may also make a natural astringent solution from honey, rose water, a pinch of camphor and the juice from one lime. Mix all of them together, bottle it up and use a cotton swipe to apply it on your face twice or thrice a day. Make sure you wash it off with cold water after it dries off on your skin.
While using any of these natural remedies you must remember that natural remedies take time to show their results, especially when compared to the effects of chemical solutions. However, persistent application and follow up of the regime will give you positive results with time.
