Are you suffering from Pimples (acne)? Fed up with creams and ointments not working? Why don’t you try some time-tested home remedies?
Numerous products are available in the market today, that claim to cure pimples or acne. The companies that produce these creams are getting their pocket filled as the number of people suffering from this condition increases due to dust, pollution, etc. In the olden days, our grandmothers had no such creams or solutions to cure their pimples. They had their own home remedies to get freedom from pimples.
For People with Normal Skin
Rub a piece of turmeric on a coarse stone with drops of water to make a smooth paste. To this paste add drops of milk and mix well. Apply this paste on the pimple-affected area in the night before going to sleep and wash the face in cool water in the morning.
For People with Oily Skin
Rub a piece of red sandalwood on a rough stone with a little rose water and make it into a smooth paste. Apply this paste on the Pimples or as a facemask over night. Wash the face with cool water in the morning for a bright skin.
Neem leaves are a natural antibiotic for our skin as well as internal parts of the body. Grind the neem leaves to a smooth paste with little honey. Apply this paste on the Pimples or all over your face. Let it stay throughout the night and wash it off with cool water in the morning. This will make your skin feel healthy. If the neem paste is consumed (orally) about one spoon per week, it purifies the blood and rejuvenates the skin from inside.
