Hello my lovely people out there!!! 🙂
Pimples are a nightmare and the most uninvited guest in my life. I don’t know how but these pimples have the worst timing than anyone else could ever have. They pop up right when I have any important function to attend or when I need my face to look clear and glowing. Are you too relating these scenarios with you? Pimples are your nightmare too?
Are you searching for the ways to get rid of those annoying pimples and acne? By this time you would have read enough articles on this topic and would have found many remedies for it. But I would try to narrow down the list with four remedies that have worked well for me. To be honest there are many ways to get rid of pimples but I do not want to put them all in a single post and leave you confused by giving you so many options. Because I have faced that kind of dilemma after reading nearly 10-15 ways of pimples and acne treatment in one single article( no offense to those who does that. They are all doing great but I personally get confused) I will split up the post into 2- 3 parts and will come up with effective ideas that would help in treating the pimples. So without any delay let me tell you the ways to kill your pimples and get rid of it.
I would like to first mention all the 4 ways to get rid of pimples and acne. They are using
- Tea tree oil
- Aleo vera
- Calamine lotion
(I like even numbers so instead of five, I would post four remedies in each part. Is that kind of weird?)
Tea tree oil
There are various reasons why you get pimples and acne. May be because of heat or bacteria or clogged pores or what so ever. It is a broad topic and probably I will make a separate post on it. But coming on to the topic, no matter what is the reason behind your pimples; tea tree oil is going to treat it. Now you must be thinking like won't this oil make your face oilier and may also lead to another pimple. Then the answer is a big NO. No, this will not make your face oilier because this oil is just will disappear within a minute after you apply on the pimple. It would seem like you have not applied anything over there. Tea tree oil has the antibacterial property and so it kills the bacteria that are responsible for causing pimple.
How to apply
I use tea tree oil for spot treatment and this essential oil does a miracle in my case. Pure tea tree oil will be concentrated so take one drop of it and apply it gently on the pimple. Use it only on the pimple and not in other places of your face. I would suggest you to use tea tree oil when you notice that a pimple is about to pop up on your face. Because that is the right time to kill bacteria and soothe your pimple. This oil reduces redness and pain that you may get due to a pimple. Most of the time my pimple reduces in size and is gone when I apply it in the initial stage itself. I use tea tree oil from soulflower.
I have actually applied tea tree oil now on my tiny pimple near my eyebrow and typing a post for you guys on the same topic. What a timing! 🙂
If you find tea tree oil as too concentrated for your skin then you can dilute it with coconut oil in 1:2 ratio.

Aloe Vera gel
Aloe Vera gel has numerous beauty benefits because they have many biologically active components in them. They possess anti-fungal property and that is why it can treat cystic acne and pimples. They possess anti-bacterial properties resulting in the killing of the bacterial cell and reducing redness of pimples. Because of its cooling effects aloe vera gel is good for soothing the pimples.
How to apply
You can apply either the gel of organic aloe vera or buy any aloe vera gel from the market. I use aloe vera gel from Aroma treasures. They contain essential oil in them which is like an add on when compared to the plain aloe vera gel. Apply the aloe vera gel onto the pimples and leave it overnight for best result.
You can also mix tea tree oil into the aloe Vera gel and apply it. That will also work very well. Aloe vera gel will try to shrink the size of the pimples and eliminate it when you use it right at the moment when you feel that you are going to get a pimple. I apply aloe vera gel all over my face and let it dry for 30 minutes. This helps in healing the cells thereby preventing pimples.

Steam is the best way to clear up your clogged pores. Due to extreme oil secretion the pores get clogged and results in pimples and acne. How good it would be if you can open up the pores and removes those accumulated oils! well then there is a way to do it and that is when steam is used. I used to use it thrice a week when I was in college. If you are traveling a lot then I would like to tell you that the main reason for your pimple may be the dirt and oil clogging your pores.
How to take steam
This is very simple. Collect hot water I mean literally so hot that you could see the steam coming out in a vessel. Then keep your face over the vessel in such a way that you are able to get the steam for 5 minutes. I do not cover my head with towel * Ahhhh claustrophobic*
after five minutes you can see your pimple becoming soft, do not rub it or try to take out the puss 9if there is any) forcefully. This will lead to scars nothing else. Do not forget to close your pores with cold water.
After taking steam rub gently in the areas where your pores are visible ( not on the pimple) and then close your pore. This will help in getting rid of excess sebum and also blackheads and whiteheads.
Calamine is a mixture of two components- Zinc oxide and ferric oxide. They are well known for treating skin problems like pimples, acne, itchy and dry skin. Calamine lotions are available in various brands and calamine is available in powder form too. I would suggest you to use lotion form simply because they are easy to apply. If you have read my night-time skincare routine (if you have not read that yet then do read it) then you must be knowing that I have been using Dermocalm lotion for a very long time. This dries out my pimple overnight and is completely safe. For more details about this lotion read night-time skincare routine
How to apply
Apply the calamine lotion on the pimple before going to bed. Next morning itself after washing your face you can see the result.
