To look attractive it is not just about good clothes but an attractive skin is also desirable. Each one of us wants a fresh and clear skin with no sign of wrinkles or blemishes over it and imagine this- A romantic date with your boyfriend and a night before there is this little red monster sitting on your forehead Nightmares are not these? The moment we spot a pimple on our face we start thinking of all the possible ways to get rid of it as soon as possible.
But getting rid of pimples isn’t that an easy task as we may think or maybe it is! Here are 6 simplest of tips which you can follow and these will definitely help in keeping your skin pimple free.
1. Keep your face clean
Cleansing shall be one of the most important steps of your skin care routine. Even if you are not having an acne problem washing the face twice a day helps in removing dirt, oil and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.
Less oil and dirt also means less acne. While washing your face never apply soap and always use a mild face cleanser. Also wash the face only with warm or cold water as using hot water can cause pimples.
2. Watch your hair often
To avoid having pimples it is not just necessary to keep your face oil free but your hair shall also not be oily. Leaving overnight oil on your hair can cause pimples as the hair touching your face will make your skin oily.
Wash your hair regularly and don’t let them fall on your face. Also go easy on products like hair gels, fragrances and deodorants as they can clog up the skin pores leading to pimples.
3. Keep your hands away from your face
Siting an unpleasant pimple makes us want to pop it immediately to get rid of it But touching and popping pimples can only accentuate the problem. Don’t let your hands touch your face very often. It can spread bacteria, cause infections or further more pimples which you certainly don’t want.
4. Apply Ice
Ice soothes the skin, particularly the affected area which can help your skin to become pimple-free.
Applying ice on the skin will remove the oil and dirt trapped inside and reduces the redness and swelling.
To get rid of an eruption, put an ice cube in a cloth and gently press it against the affected skin or one can also make it a routine to apply crushed ice or ice cubes to the skin in order to avoid pimples.
5. Apply Honey
Honey masks are quite a common acne treatment. Applying honey on the face works both as a preventive method and as a treatment for pimples. It is a natural antiseptic that soothes and heals the skin.
The antioxidants present in honey can help in reducing the inflammation over the skin and making it pimple free. Apply some honey on your face for 15-30 minutes and then wash it off. Not only will it work against your acne problem but it also makes the skin smooth and supple.
6. Eat Healthy
Mothers always tell us that no amount of cosmetic products can benefit our skin as much as eating a healthy diet comprising of fresh fruits and vegetables can. This is in fact true.
Eating oily and greasy food like chocolates or junk food doesn’t do much good to our skin while eating grains, fruits and vegetables helps us in keeping it healthy and pimple free skin.
