Here are 10 effective home remedies for those annoying pimples.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

When it comes to treating pimples and acne, apple cider vinegar is the number one solution. That is because it wards off germs and bacteria that causes pimples to break out. Also, it has alkaline, which balances the skin’s pH levels.

To use, mix 1 part of apple cider vinegar with 3 parts of water. Dip a cotton ball into the solution and apply it to the pimples. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes. Rinse.

2. Egg Whites

Here’s a quick-and-easy remedy to reduce acne in your face – egg whites. Packed with vitamins and proteins, this ingredient helps rebuild damaged skin cells and fight acne. After application, be sure to use a moisturizer because it can dry out the skin a bit.
Before you apply it to your face, carefully whisk the whites until they are frothy. After which, cover your face with the mixture. Three layers is often enough, but make sure that the first layer has already dried before applying another one. Let it sit and dry for 20 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.

3. Papaya

For the pimple-prone face, papaya is the perfect beauty product. Plain papaya can eliminate the dead skin cells, as well as the excess fats of oils from the skin. As a result, the skin is left soft and baby soft.

Using this in the face is as easy as pie. You just have to mash the flesh of the fruit until your desired consistency is achieved. And then, apply. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

4. Aloe Vera

A popular product for conditioning the hair, aloe vera gel can be used to combat acne. Thanks to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it effectively reduces swelling and redness.

To use, gather enough aloe vera gel to cover the problem. Next, wash your face and use a towel to let it dry. Finally, apply the gel to the affected areas using your clean fingertips or cotton balls.

5. Baking Soda

Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate is not only useful in baking; it is also makes a great solution to acne. That is because it has the ability to combat bacteria and fungus and dry up all the excess oils.

There are different ways to use baking soda. First, use it as a facial mask by mixing it with equal parts of water to create a thick paste. Next, massage it on your face for at least 2 minutes. Let it sit for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

Secondly, use it as a scrub. Mix half a cup of baking soda with 1/8 cup of water. Massage it to your face for six minutes. Again, rinse with warm water.

6. Garlic

You can eat it or apply it topically. Either way, it still helps reduce the breakouts and prevents them from coming back. However, do not ever apply it to your skin without diluting it. If possible, mash it or soak it in water to at least get the juice.

It would be best to mash 2 to 3 cloves and leave it soaked in water for 10 minutes. Grab a cotton ball and wet it in the garlic water mixture. Apply it to the problem.

7. Potato

It is an excellent vegetable as is, but its benefits to the skin might be something you have never heard of before. With its sulfur, phosphorus, and chloride content, potato can aid in fighting those blemishes. It also has antioxidants that leaves the skin nourished and encourages the growth of healthy skin cells.

To apply, wash your face with water.  Make sure to leave it slightly damp. After that, grate 1 potato and leave the pulp on your face for at least 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

8. Lemon Juice

Lemon JuicePacked with vitamin C, lemon juice is ideal for all skin types. Though it works like an astringent, it also helps whiten the skin naturally.

To use, rinse face with water and let it dry. Wet a cotton ball with lemon juice and apply directly to the affected area. If it hurts, try mixing it with yogurt.

9. Mint

Because it contains menthol, mint works as an excellent painkiller. Well, it doesn’t really cure acne, but it can fade away the redness and ease the discomfort caused by inflammation and swelling.

For better results, crush the leaves using a blender or a mortar and pestle. Rub the crushed leaves to your clean face and let it sit for 5 minutes. Rinse with cold water.

10. Steam

Yes, steam can help relieve several minor problems. Acne is one of them. It opens the pores and removes the impurities lurking deep within.

All you need to do is boil water and pour it into a bowl. Let it cool for several minutes. If the temperature has lowered a bit, put your face above the bowl and cover your head with a towel to trap the steam. After 10 minutes, remove the towel and let your face dry.
With all these ingredients, you can probably create one satisfying salad. But then again, you can use them individually to enjoy the perks better. Just remember that taking the effort for skin care makes a great difference.
