In this post we are going to look at how to treat pimples. Many people have been facing this skin problem for a very long time, so therefore I have decided to proffer solution on this acne called pimples and state the various ways on how to treat pimples.

Pimples, Acne, Zits, Bumps and Spots are very annoying and most painful thing is that they will happen at the most inopportune or inappropriate time. You might think that once you pass puberty, you are cleared as far as blemishes are concerned, but that is not always the case. Because children, teenagers and adults are both suffering from pimples.

So therefore, in this post, I have highlighted 11 ways on how to treat pimples and get rid of zits naturally. So I have provided on eleven best home remedies for treating pimples. They are as follows:

1. Tea Tree Oil

Tee tree oil is a home remedy for many conditions especially for acne and other skin conditions. Tea tree oil is able to break up clogged pores, clear out dead skin cells and keep acne from coming back. To use tee tree oil for acne, mix one part oil to six to nine parts water, depending on how strong you want the mixture to be. Apply directly to the skin using cotton balls and leave it on for around 30 minutes. You can moisturize afterwards, but be sure that you never use tea tree oil undiluted.

Egg whites also make a great home remedy for getting rid of pimples. To use this method, simply separate the egg white from the yolk. Then, you can use a cotton swab, cotton ball, or simply your fingers to apply the egg white to your skin. Your skin will glow and begin to tighten. Leave the egg white mixture on your skin for up to an hour for best results.

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Sort of along the same lines as lemon juice, apple cider vinegar has the same antibacterial properties, as well as antifungal properties as well. Apple cider vinegar is very powerful though, so you might want to dilute it when you use it, at least at first. Just apply a small amount to your skin, but make sure that you choose pure, undiluted vinegar for best results. You start washing your face with apple cider vinegar, including for removing pimples, fighting wrinkles and age spots and much more.

  1. Baking Soda

Baking soda is a great option for clearing up blemishes, it’s cheap, it’s natural, and it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals or other ingredients. The benefits of baking soda are many: it exfoliates, it reduces inflammation, and it clears up skin. All you have to do is use warm water and baking soda to make a paste. Then, apply the paste to your skin like a mask. Leave it on for up to an hour, and then rinse. You will be amazed at the results.

  1. Water

Yes, it’s simple, but it works. By drinking 10-12 glasses of water per day, you can flush most, if not all, impurities out of your body. Also, you can boil a pot of water, and place a towel over the pot and your head to get the benefits of steam. Steam can help to open the pores and flush out the impurities. As you can see, water can be beneficial in multiple ways when it comes to getting rid of blemishes.
