Home Remedies for Pimples Under the Skin

Every time I look at a person, my first impression is always influenced by the clothes he or she wears and the tattoos or skin blemishes he or she has. But of course, I believe that first impressions are not always right. However, if I want to make a good impression on other people, I always dress my best and make sure that I look good in the mirror.

For me, looking good to leave a good first impression does not necessarily mean wearing expensive clothing. It just means wearing something neat and clean and making sure that you are well-groomed. However, if you have skin blemishes or imperfections such as skin tear or pimples under the skin, they may also influence other people’s impression on you.

Among the many types of skin imperfections, pimples are pretty common. I have seen them in many teens and adults, regardless of gender. And I wonder what they do to get rid of them.

I have learned about different home remedies for pimples from some people and have listed them here as reference for those who may also be suffering from this skin condition:

1. Tomato Juice

Tomatoes are rich in antioxidants and are considered to be a natural astringent. Dabbing your pimples with pure tomato juice twice daily may help you get rid of them. It is important to note that pure tomato juice may cause icky dryness on the skin, so use it only on the affected area.

2. Green Tea

Another inexpensive and natural home remedy for pimples would be green tea. But you have to freeze the tea first into cubes so that you could easily rub it over the pimples for a couple of minutes before rinsing. You should do it every day until you see any improvement. This remedy has a very soothing effect on the skin.

3. Mustard

The mustard sauce some people would like to put on their steak or hot dogs contains natural salicylic acid which may work wonders for your pimples. It also contains omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, vitamin C, zinc and other natural elements that are good for the skin. As home remedy for pimples, you could apply mustard over your pimple and leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing. As an alternative, you could also use mustard powder with honey.

4. Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is also one of the best known home remedies for pimples. Simply apply the juice over the pimples and let it stay overnight. Be sure that you don’t go out under the sun without rinsing your face since lemon juice could make your skin photosensitive. If you do, the sun may do some more damage to your skin.

5. Apple Cider Vinegar

You could also use undiluted apple cider vinegar on your pimples (not the entire face). This only applies if you have only several pimples to treat. If you have more and they cover a bigger area on your face, just refer to the other remedies on the list.

I hope that many people will benefit from this list and would be able to have a blemish-free face.
