How to control pimples?

Pimples develop when the excessive oil produced by the sebaceous glands has no outlet due to clogged pores. Pores can get clogged due to pollution, dirt, or simply due to dead skin that has not shredded off on its own. When the excessive oil has no outlet, it accumulates beneath the skin and activates the bacteria that are always present on our skin, thus leading first to acne, and then subsequently to pimples.

Therefore, the first order of the day is to unclog your pores. And the best way to unclog your pores is to exfoliate your skin and follow proper skin care tips. You can exfoliate your skin with the help of readymade scrubs available in the market or else you can prepare your own scrub at home. Coarsely ground a few almonds and walnuts and mix them with unflavored yogurt to make a thick paste. Massage this paste, very gently and in circular motion, in your face and on your neck, for about six to seven minutes. You need to do this at least twice a week if you live in a polluted environment. Exfoliating your skin will open up your pores and allow the skin to throw out the excess oil thus allowing the skin to breathe and improve its circulation. Improved circulation will also help in reducing the accumulation of the oil on the skin. To ensure that the oil stays off the skin, cleanse your skin at least thrice a day with a mild face wash.

Apart from this, here is another natural skin care pack that you can apply to your face to get rid of excessive oil on the skin. Take two teaspoons of orange powder that is made from dried orange peels, two teaspoons of unflavored yogurt, and seven to eight drops of lemon juice. Apply this pack, liberally, on your face and neck, let it stay for at least half an hour or till it dries completely, and then wash it off with lukewarm water. This will not only help to reduce the oiliness of the skin, the lemon juice has properties that will help to disinfect the skin and remove the bacteria. To start off, for the first two three weeks, apply this pack at least twice a week. Then reduce the frequency to once a week, then once every two weeks, and then finally to once a month. Another thing that will take care of the oiliness as well as disinfect the skin is honey. You can apply this to your skin every alternate day for the desired result.
