Acne and Pimples Treatment, Acne and Pimples, Clear Pimples, How to get Rid of Acne Pimples

I am a 15 year old girl and have terrible acne pimples problem on my cheeks and forehead. My face gets oily often. Even washing face doesn’t help. Are there any home remedies to reduce my pimples?

It is very normal to have acne and pimples at this age. This is the time when your body is undergoing a lot of hormonal changes which causes the sebaceous glands to secrete more oil then what is required. Acne and pimples are caused when the dead skin cells do not fall off on their own and the oil that is secreted gets trapped beneath the skin. This trapped oil then interacts with the bacteria that is present on our skin and causes acne first and then pimples.

How to get rid of Acne Pimples?

What you, therefore, need to do is develop a daily regime of first exfoliating and cleansing your skin and then work towards treating your pimples. To exfoliate your skin and clear pimples, you can buy an exfoliating scrub meant specifically for oily skin. The scrub will help to remove the dead skin cells and excess oil and open your pores so that the skin can breathe properly. If you don’t want to buy a readymade exfoliating scrub, you can prepare one at home as well. Take three teaspoons of powder that is made from dried orange peels, two tablespoons of yogurt, and one tablespoon of coarsely ground walnuts. Massage this scrub gently on your face for 10 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. To get rid of the pimples, make a paste by mixing sandalwood and rosewater. Sandalwood has healing properties and rosewater will provide the necessary cooling to get rid of the pimples. You can apply this paste on your face at night before going to sleep and wash it off in the morning. You can apply this paste two to three times during the day as well. Another thing that you can do is make a face pack of gram flour and yogurt in equal proportions, along with a few drops of lemon juice added to it. Apply this in a thin layer on your face, and let it semi-dry. When it is semi-dry, rub it gently, in circular motions, off your face. This will not only take care of the pimples but also remove the excess oil off your skin.

And finally, for acne and pimples treatment you need to take care of the pores that get opened due to exfoliating. Open pores tend to collect even more dirt. To tighten the pores, you can make a paste out of soaked almonds to which you can add cucumber juice and a few drop of rose water. Leave this paste on your face till it dries and then wash it off with cool water.
