Skin care recipes - Home remedy for pimples

Home remedy for pimples has only one goal: to remove the excess oil off the skin. Sebaceous or oil glands normally produce oil that protects the skin. If they become overactive, more than normal amount is produced which leads to oily skin.

When it comes to pimples, the main reason they appear is clogged pores. Pores get clogged with impurities which combine with the oil to cause an inflammatory reaction which we see as pimples.

There are a few simple tips which help you keep your face cleansed and pimple free:

  • Don't try and remove all the oil off the face. This oil protects the skin, remember? What might be a better thing to do, is try and keep the oil production under control. Try preparing a cleansing facial steam which will open up the pores and cleanse them from all the impurities accumulated.
  • An antiseptic facial exfoliant, such as honey based face scrub will not only help exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, but also prevent an inflammation. Using it weekly is recommended.
  • A facial toner that contains no alcohol is the way to go. Alcohol will certainly clean the face, but will also dry it out, which may lead to redness and worsening of the skin's condition.
