Pimples. Everyone has them at one point in life or another. When you least expect them they sprout out of your face like a nuisance weed without warning and conveniently appear when you have a big event or day approaching. Both men and women try tirelessly to prevent breakouts, however sometimes there is occasionally that one pimple that slips through the next and decides to make an appearance (conveniently) on an important day.
Home Remedies for Pimples
There are various different methods and solutions that can help to get rid of pimples, the easiest and quickest include:
Raw potato slices:
Not the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of pimple solutions, however place raw potato slices on a pimple for up to 30 minutes cannot only prevent the pimple from leaving a scar but also reduce redness, clean and exfoliate the area and sooth it. Raw potatoes include chloride, potassium and sulphur in them, therefore reducing the swelling and redness of the pimple easily and quickly.
As unbelievable as it sounds, vodka is one of the quickest and most effective ways to get rid of pimples. It cleanses the pimple and penetrates it deep, drying it out. It is later easy to peel the dried pimple off once it’s hardened to reveal the pimple free skin underneath. This method is also the easiest, take a cotton pad or swab, dip it in the vodka and rub over the spot. Leave it there for 5 to 10 minutes and remove. Allow to dry and the pimple should be gone within the next few hours.
Lemon is also a great way to remove pimples quickly and easily. Fresh lemon not only disinfects the pimple, it also dries it out quickly and speeds up the healing process. Dip a cotton ball or swab in fresh lemon juice and rub on the pimple for a minute or two. It will dry up within a few hours and either fall off or be easy to peel off the skin.
