Whenever there is something wrong with our health, including such skin disorders as acne and pimples, our first reflex is usually to over-the-counter medicines. They might be good when it comes to getting rid of the symptoms fast. But they often work temporarily because they are not dealing with the root causes of what you are suffering from. Many people even reported that their condition got worse when they use OTC medications for their pimples. Therefore, natural remedies for pimples that we can make at home should be the ones that we should consider and try out. They don't have side effects. In this article, I will share with you three of the best pimples home remedies that I like the most. When you take them into practice, you will find out that your skin is getting clear even faster than expected.
Citric Acid Powder
Citric acid effectively alleviates the symptoms such as redness and bumps of pimples because it is known to balance the pH value of the skin. It can be found in fruits such as cucumber and oranges. These fruits might sound very familiar to you as far as their function for skincare is concerned if you are a girl. The method to apply them is to make them into a paste and use them as a facial mask. And then wash them away gently after they are dried. This can be done daily if you like.

You might be wondering how an ice pack can be connected to a pimple cure. As a matter of fact, it can be used as a painkiller. When the pimple is very swollen and painful, you may need an ice pack to compress the affected area. Don't compress the pack against the pimples for a long time once. Take it away for a few seconds after seconds of compression. Otherwise, the skin might be damaged, and scars will come into being.

Many people reported positive results after using toothpaste in removing pimples. I listened to them and tried it on one of the pimples on my face. I was not satisfied with the result. The skin over the pimple got dark. And the pimple itself got hard. Why? I didn't know until I learned about the right way to apply it. So don't leave the toothpaste on overnight. Instead, wash it away within 2 hours. Toothpaste works because it is effective in getting rid of bacteria on our skin and in our mouth.
