Homemade Remedies to Get Rid of Pimples
According to the Mayo Clinic website, hormonal changes are the most common cause of pimples and acne. That's why pimples are so prevalent among teenagers. However, pimples can occur at any stage of life, and they can be embarrassing for many people. You can use a mixture of essential oils to help to get rid of pimples, according to Julia Lawless, author of "The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils: The Complete Guide to The Use of Aromatic Oils In Aromatherapy, Herbalism, Health and Well Being." Talk to your doctor before using any homemade remedies.
Combine ½ teaspoon German chamomile essential oil, ½ teaspoon galbanum essential oil, ½ teaspoon bergamot essential oil, ½ teaspoon juniper essential oil, ¼ teaspoon myrtle essential oil, ¼ teaspoon mandarin essential oil, ¼ teaspoon peppermint essential oil and ½ cup jojoba oil in a small container with a tight-fitting top.
Cover the bottle, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to combine the ingredients.
Pour a small amount of the mixture onto your fingertips. Gently massage the oil onto your skin where the pimples are.
Leave the essential oil mixture on the skin for 15 to 20 minutes.
Rinse your skin with cool, clean water. Wash with a gentle cleanser, and pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
Apply your regular moisturizer after your skin is dry.
Repeat this treatment twice per day. Discontinue use if the mixture causes any sort of redness, swelling or discomfort.
Store unused portions of the mixture in a cool, dark, dry place between uses. Discard the mixture after 90 days.
