How to Get Rid of Pimples Using Home Remedies
According to Mayo Clinic, the most common causes for pimples or acne include overproduction of the sebaceous glands, a buildup of bacteria, and irregular shedding of dead skin cells, which causes irritation and damage to one or more hair follicles. There are aromatherapy home remedies that can be used to get rid of pimples, according to Susan E. Worwood, author of "Essential Aromatherapy: A Pocket Guide to Essential Oils and Aromatherapy."
Combination Essential Oil Acne Treament
Combine ½ tsp. German chamomile essential oil, ½ tsp. cedarwood essential oil, ½ tsp. bergamot essential oil, ½ tsp. eucalyptus essential oil, ½ tsp. lemongrass essential oil, and ½ cup jojoba oil in a small container with a tight-fitting top.
Cover the container holding the essential oils and shake it gently for 10 to 15 seconds to combine.
Pour a small amount of the oil mixture onto a clean cotton ball, allowing the oil to soak into the cotton for one minute.
Dab the cotton ball gently on the affected area of the skin. Leave the oil on the skin for 30 minutes without wiping it off. If necessary, place a towel around your neck to prevent the oil from dripping on your clothes.
Rinse your skin with cool, clean water and pat dry with a clean towel or paper towel.
Wash the skin with a very mild facial cleanser before applying a gentle moisturizer to the area.
Use this treatment once daily as long as necessary and as long as there isn't any irritation or redness.
Store unused portions of this mixture in a cool, dark and dry place, like a kitchen cupboard, for no more than 60 days. Discard after this time period.
