    Tips to Reduce Pimples

    Pimples are the small monsters that have been creating havoc in the lives of many people since long. They are skin lesions or inflammations of the skin that are commonly caused by clogged or infected pores. The clogging is due to a type of oil called sebum that lubricates skin and hair. Pimples also develop when the blackheads or whiteheads get infected. Hormonal overdrives are also a prime cause of pimples.

    These monsters canít be eradicated completely, but their breakouts can be prevented.

    Here are some important tips to help you avoid and clear them up as fast as possible.
    1. Washing the face 2-3 times a day is beneficial. Orange peel powder, made by powdering dry orange peels can be used for washing the face in place of soap. It is refreshing and smells good too.


    2. Rubbing fresh garlic on and around pimples can make them disappear without leaving marks behind. This has great effects with regular applications.


    3. Oil massages increase the blood flow in veins and exhaust dirt and sweat from the body. These are found to be beneficial in the treatment of pimples.


    4. Application of a paste made by mixing 3 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder on the pimples can be extremely beneficial. The paste should be applied before sleeping and washed with warm water the next morning. The treatment, when repeated for two weeks, will make the pimples disappear forever.


    5. Applying fresh mint juice over the face every night can be very effective in the treatment of pimples.


    6. Lime juice and rose water mixed in equal proportions can be applied over the infected area and washed off after 20-30 minutes with lukewarm water. This can have astonishing effects.


    7. Although it sounds a little absurd, toothpaste is a proven method to treat pimples from appearing. You can apply it over the affected area overnight and get up with a considerably smaller and more dried up pimple.


    8. Wearing oil-free makeup reduces the tendency to cause pore buildup and thereby reduces the emergence of pimples.


    9. Baby powder can be used to dry out pimples and even get rid of them.


    10. One of the most common advices in connection with the reduction of pimples is overcoming the tendency to touch, squeeze, pinch or prick the pimples. Keeping the hands off pimples can be useful in preventing further infection and scarring.

    Re: Tips to Reduce Pimples

    Some more Tips

    Step One

    Wash your face at least twice a day with a mild cleanser. Use a pH-balanced cleanser without perfumes or too many chemical additives.

    Step Two

    Touch your face as little as possible, and only when your hands are clean.

    Step Three

    Avoid squeezing pimples. Bacteria on your hands or on unsterile equipment can lead to more blemishes and possible scarring.

    Step Four

    Steam your face once or twice a week to help open the pores. Boil water, remove the pot from the stove, drape a towel over your head and hold your face over the pot. Then rinse your face with cold water. (See "Make an Herbal Facial," under Related eHows.)

    Step Five

    Use essential oils such as calendula, chamomile, juniper, lavendar and mint directly on your skin. Mix 10 drops of any of the oils with 2 tbsp. soy or almond oil, and smooth a few drops on dampened skin.

    Step Six

    Try using herbs. Saw palmetto can help balance boys' hormones, while chaste tree berry can do the same for girls. Echinacea, alfalfa, burdock root, cayenne, chaparral and yellow dock root are also helpful.

    Step Seven

    Consider other topical mixtures. Beat an egg yolk, apply it with a cotton ball and leave it on for 15 minutes. Alternatively, mix oatmeal and honey together to form a paste and apply it to your face. Oatmeal soaks up excess oil and honey soothes the skin.

    Step Eight

    Take acidophilus to fight bacteria.

    Step Nine

    Eat a diet high in fiber, including whole grains and fresh vegetables and fruits, to keep your body healthy overall and provide nutrients to your skin. Stay away from junk food, caffeine and salty foods.

    Step Ten

    Determine whether specific foods aggravate your skin and eliminate them from your diet.

    Step Eleven

    Consider adding zinc supplements to your diet.

    Step Twelve

    Limit your exposure to the sun and reduce the stress in your life.
