This subject matter is one that the majority of us would very easily relate to. You know, every once in a while, we always find one break out or the other, and sometimes, it could be really serious that you just don't want to go out all day. These break outs usually ranges from rashes, acne, pimples, sunburns, eczema and a long list of others.
Now, one thing that people fail to realise about facial breakouts is the fact that they are usually a reaction to something; a condition in the body, or external to the body. These breakouts do not just appear on their own accord, in most cases, they are communicating a message of lack, anomaly, or surplus. But for the purpose of this article, I'll be concentrating on Acne and pimples; on some of the home-made cures to the duo.
To start with, let me let you know that pimples are not same with acne. The latter is a more serious skin condition, when compared to pimple. So that being said, there are a thousand and one different natural, and cheap ways of combating pimples and acne. But i'll list few effective mixtures.
· Lemon and Baking soda:
This mixture just requires you to cut your lemon (note lemon not lime) in half, dab it lightly into the soda and scrub against your face in a circular motion. Leave it in for 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the severity of the condition. After this, wash it off with warm water and moisturize your skin.
· Tumeric powder and honey:
The mixture is cheap and easy to source. It works effectively too, such that in a week of consistent use, you'll begin to see differences. Just mix a small portion of tumeric powder and honey, mix it well and massage into the face. Wash off in thirty minutes, pat dry and apply a skin moisturizer.
· Orange peel and yogurt:
Get your orange, take the skin out and sun-dry it. Then grind the skin in a mortar or blender. When it has been blended into powder form, store it in a dry place and take it out in bits daily. Thoroughly mix it with yoghurt and massage it well into your face. Leave it on for 15 to 25 minutes. Do this daily and you'll begin to see results in days.
· Tooth paste and blue seal Vaseline
These two can be found anywhere. All you need to do is just mix both in equal quantity, apply on your face and leave for just 3 minutes. Then wash off with warm water. With this, you don't need a moisturizer. It moisturizes the face already.
Note, you can use any toothpaste, but "colgate maximum cavity protection" is a preferable choice.
Having said this, now you have your remedy to pimples and cure. Apply your choice of remedy mixture consistently and you will definitely see results.
