Pimples are definitely irritating, especially when we have to go to an urgent event or a party with friends. Nobody likes to have a big pimple popping on their forehead, cheeks or chin. They just destroy the whole look of our face. And then no matter how much time and effort we put into doing a nice makeup look, everything goes in vain. In today’s article, we will look into the products which definitely work in fixing or treating pimples.
The first product for which everyone rushes when having a pimple is toothpaste. Toothpaste helps in drying out pimples and prevents them from spreading the bacteria all over the face. For this quick remedy, you just need to dab a small amount of toothpaste on the affected area with a cotton bud.
Before applying toothpaste directly on the pimple, just do a patch test on your arm. If irritation occurs, don’t use it on the pimple. Remember to use only white toothpaste for treating pimples, don’t go for any other gel-based or colorful toothpaste.
Multani Mitti (Fuller’s Earth)
Multani mitti is also known as fuller’s earth. It dries out pimples very effectively without leaving a scar on the spot. Just mix a quarter spoon of fuller’s earth with some water/honey to make a smooth paste. Apply it to the spot and leave at least 15-20 minutes before washing.
Repeat this procedure after every few hours and you will see how magically your pimple will go away.
Foaming Face Wash
We all have a foaming face wash in our vanity for the days when our skin produces more oil than usual. But, if you don’t have a one right now, Patanjali orange aloe vera face wash will be very economical in your pocket.
Just use a generous amount of foaming face wash on the spot where a pimple has appeared and wash after a minute. You don’t need to wash your entire face while doing this quick fix. Wash your entire face with face wash only 2 times a day and the affected area needs to be washed 2 more times separately.
Tea Tree Essential Oil
I know this option is a bit pricey but is worth every penny you are paying for it. Tea tree essential oil is very much concentrated to use directly on pimples. So, mix 1-2 drops of tea tree essential oil with a spoon of carrier oil (coconut/olive/almond oil, whatever best suits your skin).
Apply this mixture of oil on the affected areas with a cotton bud and leave this oil to work. Tea tree essential oil has anti-microbial properties and certain antioxidants which helps in treating and clearing acne very fast. Reapply every few hours till the pimples go away. Please do a patch test before using any essential oil on your skin.
Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil is also an effective product in treating pimples. It not only treats pimples but also clear the scars that come with them. However, you can use it directly on the spots but if you find it a bit concentrated for your pimples. Mix 1-2 drops of this essential oil with a spoon of any carrier oil and then apply this mixture to the spots with a cotton swab. Reapply every few hours.
Lemon essential oil has anti-bacterial properties and antioxidants which treat the pimples and clear the scars very well. Please do a patch test before using it on your skin.
If you have no time to treat your pimples and you have to go out of the house right away. Then, concealer always comes as a quick hack to cover them. Just use a small amount of concealer on your pimple and you are good to go.
