Home Remedies For Pimples

What are Pimples?

Bacterial infection in the overactive oil glands situated at the base of the skin generally leads to the formation of Pimples. They are usually pus-filled raised bumps on the skin. Pimples are ugly to look at and hence considered a source of social embarrassment. The face, neck, chest, back and even shoulders are some of the most common sites of this infection.

Frequent breakouts of Pimples are referred to as Acne. Infected blackheads and whiteheads usually lead to the formation of Pimples. Contrary to the popular belief, Pimples are not caused due to dirt, sweat, or consumption of oily foods, chocolates, etc.

Though, the popular conception that Pimples should not be squeezed holds true. The act of picking or squeezing Pimples is discouraged as it may lead to further inflammation and scarring. Although many over the counter medicines and creams are often suggested to cure Pimples, still people are more attracted towards the natural cures in the form of natural home remedies for Pimples because they are safer and cheaper than the conventions methods of treatment.

Causes and Symptoms of Pimples

As already mentioned, overactive oil glands play an important role in causing Pimples. The oil glands tend to become overactive due to overstimulation caused by hormonal changes. The hormonal changes could be triggered by puberty.

Hormonal changes caused by menstrual cycles also contribute in the development of Pimple in women. Though, the problem tends to subside once the hormones settle down. Hereditary factors may also be held responsible for causing Pimples and Acne in some cases.

Medicines containing lithium, iodides, bromides, steroids etc have been associated with the worsening of Pimples. Repeatedly washing Pimple affected area may also aggravate the problem as skin tends to produce more oil in response to repeated washing and harsh scrubbing. Stress has also been associated, though indirectly, with frequent breakouts of Pimples.

Pimples are generally characterized by red or yellow colored inflammations on the skin. They are often filled with pus. When a Pimple is squeezed, the pus spreads on the surrounding area resulting in further infection. Moreover, the act of squeezing increases the probability of leaving behind scars even after the healing. These pus-filled Pimples are less commonly known as Pustules.

Natural Home Remedies for Pimples

• Add lemon juice and rose water in equal quantities and apply this mixture on the affected area for about half an hour. Regularly following this remdial procedure for about three to four weeks is one of the most popular natural home remedies for Pimples.

• Lemon juice can also be applied in combination with an equal amount of groundnut oil to prevent as well as cure this embarrassing problem. Similarly, lemon juice can also be added to sandalwood powder and the application of the resultant paste can help reduce Pimples to a great extent. A combination of lemon juice and cinnamon power is also beneficial in Pimple treatment.

• Honey is also considered good for skin. Applying a mixture prepared from three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder over night is another popular natural cure for this irritating problem. This natural remedy is sure to give encouraging results if religiously followed for at least two weeks.

• A facial mask consisting of grated apple and honey serves as an effective home treatment for Pimples and Acne.

• Rubbing garlic on the affected area several times in a day is one of the most effective though smelly natural home remedies for Pimples. For quicker results, garlic should also be taken internally.

• Regularly applying the pulp of ripe tomatoes on the face for about an hour or so helps in the effective treatment of Pimples. Cucumber pulp can also be used in the same way with the same results.

• Raw papaya juice can be applied on the Pimples to cure Pimples naturally.

• Simply applying freshly extracted mint juice serves as one of the easiest possible natural home remedies for Pimples.

• Applying a mixture of coriander juice and some turmeric is an effective home remedy for Pimple treatment. Alternatively, if coriander juice is not available then mint juice can be used in its place.

• Add two to three teaspoons of dried basil leaves to one cup water and boil the mixture for about 15-20 minutes. Cool the mixture and then apply it on the affected area. This therapeutic home remedy should be followed on a regular basis to get rid of Pimples naturally.

• Mix some water in a mixture of crushed margosa (neem) leaves and turmeric to make a fine paste. Finally, rub the resultant mixture on the Pimples and leave it on the skin for about half an hour to heal Pimples successfully and remove the left over scars too.

• Take some roasted and powdered peels of pomegranate fruit. Next, add some lime juice to this powder to make a paste like mixture. Applying this mixture is one of the most valuable natural home remedies for Pimples.

• Take some fenugreek leaves, crush them and add sufficient water, just enough to make a paste. Apply this paste on the face over night and wash it off with warm water in the morning as an effective natural remedy for natural Pimple removal. This remedy is particularly useful for individuals with dry skin.

• Take some grinded nutmeg and add a little raw milk to it. Apply the mixture and leave it for about one or two hours. This natural home remedy is not only beneficial in curing Pimples but is useful in getting rid of their scars as well.

• Tea tree oil and aloe vera gel have anti bacterial and anti inflammatory properties that help in dealing with Pimples. Marigold and wheat germ oil are also effective against Pimples.

• Applying a mixture prepared from fuller’s earth and some water or rose water is a tried and tested Pimple cure. Fuller’s earth helps absorb excess oil from the skin.

Diet for Pimples

Judicious mix of a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds etc constitutes a healthy and balanced diet. A diet rich in vitamin A and zinc is highly recommended to deal with this problem. Moreover, consumption of wheatgrass juice helps in controlling Pimples effectively.

Oils extracted from corns, sunflowers, and safflowers have been associated with therapeutic properties for curing as well as preventing Pimples. Plus, regular and adequate consumption of fruit juices and water is considered favorable for the skin.

Though, fried and fatty foods do not cause Pimples by themselves, still they do not even help in the process of healing. Self control is the essence of any favorable treatment. Caffeinated and sugary products tend to produce toxins which are harmful for the overall health. Moreover, over consumption of junk food may prove to be unfavorable for the healing process.

  5. Hi, I have a very oily skin because of which acne is a permanent fixture on my face :'( also having an oily scalp with dandruff doesnt help either. So, can someone please help me on how to get rid of both these problems by using simple home remedies. I would be delighted if someone also told me how to get strong thick hair. I used to have this earlier but, have lost tremendous amount of hair due to pollution, travelling etc., Thank you.

    • Hey Ria! I also had the same hair problem wit dandruff and and an oily scalp. Mix the following and massage it into ur hair, then wrap it in a towel for 1 -2 hrs. Finally, wash your hair atleast twice with baby shampoo ( I recommend the brand “Live Clean (Baby)” ).
      – 1 tbs coconut oil
      – 1 tbs almond oil
      – 1 tbs mustard oil
      – 1 tbs olive oil
      – juice of half a lemon
      – 1 egg

      Repeat this process every 15 days or so. WARNING: This mixture is very stinky! So i suggest doing it on a weekend. The above will help with dandruff, get rid of excess oil and will replace it with a natural shine!
      Hope this helps!

      My hair is very long and thick. I’ve grown it to the base of my lower back. I have found that using extra virgin olive oil and extra virgin unrefined coconut oil is amazing for the hair and skin. It sounds weird, but these, as well as most other ground nut oils are also very effective in reducing wrinkles and balancing skin tone. I use pure olive oil and a little bit of honey on a cotton pad and gently scrub my face all over, then rinse my face very well. It will feel a little oily afterwards, but it’s supposed to. It will sink into your skin and the best thing is that these oils do not clog pores, unlike our natural body oil, sebum. I used to get acne all over my cheeks and I had dry patches on the sides of my nose and on my chin, but the oil has cleared it almost completely (I have only been using this method on my face specifically for about 2 weeks and I’m still seeing results). I have not heard one bad review on using evoo as a face cleanser. It works. I use the coconut oil as a moisturizer after washing with evoo. I try no to rub hard, but I do rub until I feel like the oil has completely penetrated my skin. It’s safe and very effective for wrinkles around the eyes and mouth (as well as neck! Many people forget to moisturize their neck). And remember, a little bit goes a LONG way. Also, coconut oil is great for curing dandruff. And both coconut oil and ovoo are great at moisturizing hair. I used to put a few tablespoons of these oils together, heat them up, and rub them first all over the scalp and ends, followed by the rest of the hair, pin it up in a bun and wrap with either a shower cap or even a plastic bag to keep the warmth and moisture in. You can keep this in for as long as you’d like. The longer, the better. As long as it’s about 30 min to an hour at the least. Sometimes if I have nothing to do over the weekends I will keep it in my hair over night or even for a couple of days and then wash with my regular shampoo and conditioner (if you even need conditioner after that). I say that I “used to” use this method only because I have cut regular, store-bought shampoos out of my routine completely. I now use a homemade oil shampoo/conditioner and my hair feels great. You can use a little bit of vinegar or baking soda with the oil to kind of balance it out and make it less oily for when you get out. I would recommend looking up diy recipes for this. Also, stay clear from glycerine, alcohol, castor oil, or any of those ridiculous ingredients that people claim that you “need.” Your hair does much better without them. Keep it natural! As an added note, I try not to blow dry my hair often, if at all, to reduce damage to my hair and I never use hot irons. Of course, some people use this in their routine and that’s fine. The oils will still help tremendously. All of this is just advice and if you would prefer not to use these methods, that is fine. What works for one may not work for another, but then again I have only heard good things about these methods. I hope this helps!

  9. HomeRemediesForAcne says

    Most important thing to keep away from Acne is maintain a good hygiene of the face,hands and body. Dirty hands can cause immediate acne and I have experienced this myself couple of times. Even if you don’t have acne you still have to treat your face regularly.
