We all know what happens when we can’t stop scratching our face. You can almost see that fat zit coming! Knowing that life will never be the same again with that giant-sized pimple on your face, you rush to the chemist to nip disaster right in the bud.
And before you can even reach the chemist, everybody around has already noticed your new face accessory. To make your zit die a natural death, here are a few home remedies that can help you.
As bizarre as this may sound, toothpaste is found to be very effective on pimples. Make sure that you apply white toothpaste on the affected area and leave it on for an hour or two.
2. Mint Leaves
Due to its anti-bacterial properties, mint has a cleansing effect on the face. Applying mint leaves will not only cleanse your skin but also leave a soothing effect. Take some fresh mint leaves, add some water making it a paste and then apply.
This is probably the easiest thing you could do to avoid that zit. Sit in a closed room in front of the steam pot and allow the steam to come in contact with your face and neck. Repeat this for two to three times in a day to get the best results.
4. Ice Pack
Ice removes dirt from the face which is the prime cause of pimple formation. Wrap ice cubes in a piece of cloth and apply it on the area that is red or swollen. Do this twice every day.
With the help of a cotton ball, apply honey on your face leaving it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse the face with lukewarm water. Repeat this process three times.
