Pimples, if not immediately treated can make the face appear haggard, rough and ugly. It can make you cringe at the sight of that pesky untimely pimple that somehow often pops up right before an occasion when you’re trying to look your best. So it’s always best to know how to attack them quickly. If you want to look your best and deal quickly with pimples, here are some effective home remedies to help you get rid of it.
Apply ice to the affected area
Ice helps quickly to reduce the redness, swelling and inflammation of pimples by improving the blood circulation in the affected area, removing grime and tightening the skin as well.
Use tea tree oil
The extracts in tea tree oil are one of the most potent choices for fighting off the most common pimple-causing bacterias. Mix a dash of tea tree oil into less than half a cup of water before dipping cotton into the solution and applying it directly to a pimple. Repeat this 1-2 times a day.
Moisturize that area with an aloe vera mix
Aloe vera contains compounds that are known to fight bacteria, reduce inflammation and promote healing. That’s why it is often recommended to treat conditions, such as cuts, burns and rashes.
Apply toothpaste on your pimple
You might be using toothpaste every morning to clean your teeth, but toothpaste can also get rid of your pimple quickly and effectively; especially when used with icing your pimple. Toothpaste contains baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, both of which are effective in wiping out pimples. Just make sure you stick to using white toothpaste, instead of the gel variant. Apply some white toothpaste overnight on the affected area on the skin and wash it off in the morning with water.
