Pimples at any stage of your life can be highly irritating. But in your adolescence, when you have 500 different problems, plus the added stress of a changing body, pimples can be a real pain. Unfortunately, all the chemical cures for pimples that we see in stores are just as bad as the pimples themselves.
Pimples usually come up when your oil glands get clogged and then infected. During puberty, these oil glands become overactive and start secreting oils all over the place. This of course leads to more clogging and more pimples. While you can try washing your face every five minutes, the truth is that sometimes, even that doesn’t work.
So What Can I Do To Get Rid Of Them?
Fortunately for you young (and old) grasshoppers, there are quite a few ways to make this particular problem disappear naturally.
Neem - neem is great for its antibacterial properties which prevent the inflammation and infection of the oil glands if they get clogged.
Lime - lime is a great disinfectant. It is also quite effective when it comes to reducing the amount of oil present on your skin, thus preventing the clogging of pores.
Mint leaves- can also get rid of pimples. They have a cooling effect on the skin and dig deep to clean out your pores.
Papaya - raw papaya, more specifically the white milky stuff that comes out of it, is great to get rid of pimples. This is because it is rich in all the right enzymes that act as antibacterial and antifungal agents.
Clove - again, famous for its antibacterial and antifungal properties, is commonly overlooked when it comes to getting rid of pimples because it burns. A word of advice, suck it up if you need to get rid of the pimples.
Drumstick leaves - maybe not as well known for its anti-pimple activity, drumstick leaves are quite helpful when it comes to drying pimples up. They can also speed up the disappearance of pimple marks and blemishes.
Pimples can be a huge pain when they appear. Though there isn’t very much you can do to avoid them, keeping clean, eating well and drinking lots of water doesn’t hurt. So follow the simple steps above to get rid of your pimples and if it doesn’t work, just remember: this too shall pass.
