They are painful at times and makes your face dull because of the sadness it causes to you. And what’s rather irritating is that they appear all of a sudden out of nowhere and at the most inappropriate times.

Apple Cider is rather strong and for starters, take a little apple cider and dilute it with water. Then apply on the affected areas.
Baking Soda – Want to clear up blemishes? Baking Soda is another great option. And the best thing is that it is cheap, it is natural and at the same time it does not contain any harmful chemicals or anything that might have side effects on your skin. Baking soda exfoliates your skin. It also reduces the inflammation caused due to pimples and also clears up the skin too. It is really very effective.

Manuka Honey – Just came to know about this one. It comes from the Manuka bush of New Zealand. It is well known for it’s wound healing and soothing qualities. You just have to apply it directly to your skin wherever pimples have occurred and then later you wash it with water.
Papaya – You must have seen many premium skincare products with one special and common ingredient, Papaya.

You can also make it in a lotion form too. Apply this directly on your skin. Let it be there for 30 minutes and then rinse. Apply moisturizer according to your skin type afterward.
Tea Tree Oil – I have personally used a product made out of it. Tea Tree Oil has medicinal properties and helps a great deal in getting rid of acne and other skin conditions too. It clears and opens your skin pores, clears out the dead skin cells and also helps in preventing the reappearing of pimples.
Take a small amount of oil and mix it with water. It should be like this – 1 part oil X 6 parts water. Apply to the affected area with cotton and leave it there for about 30 minutes. wash face. Use moisturizer according to your skin types afterward. Do not forget to dilute the tea tree oil as it is very strong and can have bad effects if used directly.
Starch – Starch or Cornstarch is also very effective in getting rid of acne. If you, like me, suffer from blemishes which are red and blotchy then it can do wonders for you. It is gentle to the skin and if you have over sensitive skin then this comes very handy. It’s mild to the skin. Mix some water and cornstarch and apply the paste to individual acne. You can also apply to the full face and leave it like that for as much time as you want.
Garlic – I would like to call it Doctor Garlic. Garlic might be the best in almost every health condition. It has got an amazing list of benefits. It is just wonderful. It has got antibacterial properties and you can eat it & even apply it directly to your skin too. Yep! This is how you do it – Finely slice a garlic clove.
Rub the clove and the juice of the garlic on the affected areas and leave for up to 30 minutes. Rinse and apply some moisturizer as it has got a smell and you would definitely like to get rid of that too.
Ice Cubes – Ice is a great and easy and quickest way to reduce the inflammation caused due to pimples. It greatly decreases the swollen red pimples. It also helps in reducing the appearance of blemishes too. Rub an ice cube on the pimples and it will close your skin pores. Not only that. It will push the bacteria out too. Great. No?
Water – Yes water! Drink 10 to 12 glasses of water every day. If you think that is too much, then don’t forget that the excess water will be flushed away from your body by the means of urine. When you urinate your body not only takes out the extra water but it also throws impurities.
You can also take steam. It helps in opening the skin pores and flushing out the impurities too.
