How to Get Rid of Pimples at Home Fast
Commercial acne treatments can be expensive and irritating to the skin. Before purchasing the latest product on TV or your drugstore shelves, you may wish to try a simple home remedy. Your kitchen and bathroom may already be full of acne-fighting weapons. Natural ingredients may also be less irritating to your face than chemical formulations. It is possible to create a cleanser, toner, mask or overnight spot treatment from ingredients you already have on hand.
Mix 1/2 cup dry oatmeal, 1 tbsp. sea salt, and 1 tbsp. of honey with enough water to form a paste. Massage the mixture on your face in a circular motion with your fingers to exfoliate dead skin cells, remove excess oil and lightly moisturize.
Boil a pot of water, adding lavender, tea tree or eucalyptus oil if you choose. Put a bath towel over your head and steam your face for 15 minutes. This helps open pores, making blackhead removal easier if necessary. Wrap a piece of tissue around both index fingers and gently squeeze the blackheads from your skin.
Splash your face with cool water to close the pores.
Cut a lemon or lime in half and squeeze the juice onto a cotton ball. Wipe the cotton ball over your face to tone your skin and dry up any excess oil.
Apply calamine lotion to blemishes as a spot treatment. Calamine lotion can be left on overnight to dry your pimples without irritating the skin.
