7 Easy Remedies for Acne Pimples!


Acne can be stubborn and seem to pop up at the worst times. The good news is that over-the-counter and prescription medications can zap pimples and help stop new breakouts. The bad news is that some acne products can cause side effects like redness, discoloration, or dryness. You can mix common foods and ingredients, such as cucumbers, oatmeal, grapes, and yeast, into a facial mask and create an acne treatment. A homemade facial may help prevent or clear acne, as well as keep your skin glowing, moisturized, and healthy. 1. Grape Cleanser: according to an article published in April 2016 in Advances in Dermatology and Allergology, resveratrol in the skin of red grapes may exhibit bactericidal activity against Cutibacterium acnes. 2. Cucumber Face Mask: “Cucumbers have skin soothing and hydrating benefits, so if your skin is inflamed from acne, cucumbers may offer a modest calming benefit. Here’s how to reap the benefits: "Make a paste by blending one small cucumber and 1 cup of oatmeal,". Mix 1 teaspoon [tsp] of this paste with 1 tsp of yogurt and apply it to your face. Leave it on for 30 minutes, and then rinse. 3. Cucumber Face Pack: This cooling, soothing mask will help smooth your skin, which can feel rough from acne. "Mash one whole cucumber, strain the water, add 1 tablespoon of sugar, and mix well," says Cook-Bolden. "Apply to your face and leave it on for 10 minutes; then wash with cold water." 4. Simple Honey Mask: According to an article published in August 2016 in the Central Asian Journal of Global Health, in vitro studies suggest that the antibacterial properties of honey may also promote healing of burns and wound infections, and inhibit the growth of acnes. 5. Yeast and Yogurt Mask for Oily Skin: Yogurt is also a probiotic, which has been shown to inhibit acnes. To make the mask, combine 1 tsp of brewer's yeast with a little plain yogurt to create a thin mixture. Cook-Bolden says, "Apply it thoroughly to all the oily areas and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water; then use cold water to close the pores." 6. Oatmeal Facial: Oatmeal has skin protecting, hydrating, and anti-inflammatory benefits. “It’s not specifically effective in treating acne, but it can help soothe dry, inflamed skin. I commonly recommend oat-based moisturizers for my patients who use potentially irritating acne treatments,” Mix together 2 tsp of oatmeal, 1 tsp of baking soda, and enough water to form a paste. Smooth the paste all over your face and gently rub it in. Rinse thoroughly afterward. 7. Turmeric Facial Mask: For beautiful skin, brides in India traditionally use a turmeric mask before their wedding, says Cook-Bolden. This is likely due to the spice’s anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties, and its ability to significantly improve the severity of skin conditions like acne, alopecia, atopic dermatitis, oral lichen planus, pruritus, and psoriasis. Mix 1/2 cup of chickpea flour and 2 tsp each turmeric powder, sandalwood powder, and ghee (clarified butter) or almond oil, and then combine them with enough water to make a paste. "Apply and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes, "Rub with pressure with both palms and fingers to remove all the paste." Rinse well with water. "FINAL CONCLUSION" Homemade facial masks can rejuvenate your skin and help clear acne — and all of these recipes use common ingredients found in your pantry and refrigerator. Try one or more of these remedies to treat pimple-prone skin and see how your skin responds. www.drsunnygupta.com
