Have you ever had huge pimples under your skin? Most people grow pimples outside their skin. Although this type of pimple is unsightly, they are not as painful as having them under the skin. You may be able to conceal your pimples if they are under your skin, but they are rather painful and can make you feel really uncomfortable. In worse cases, they can grow to be so big that they can make a part of your face look swollen.
Pimples are something all women do not like to have on their wedding day. What I recommend to brides who have pimples on their wedding day is to conceal them with makeup. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not, especially if there are just too many pimples to cover. But pimples especially those under the skin can be easily remedied with some of the ingredients that you can find in your pantry. If you have a wedding coming up and are dealing with this kind of pimple, you could simply pick from any of these remedies:
1. Apple Cider Vinegar
Swabbing apple cider vinegar over your blemish may do the trick. After swabbing, don’t rinse off the vinegar immediately. Let it stay for about 10 minutes before rinsing. Do this twice a day. This remedy is only applicable for one or two pimples. Don’t make the mistake of applying undiluted vinegar all over your face because the acid in it might burn your face and could worsen your problem.
2. Lemon Juice
Instead of apple cider vinegar, you could use fresh lemon juice instead. Do not rinse it, but let it stay overnight and then rinse in the morning. Remember that applying lemon can make your skin sensitive to the sun so be sure to just do it at night and don’t forget to rinse in the morning.
You could also apply mustard over your pimple. Be sure to read the label and look for salicylic acid as an ingredient. Mustard is also rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, vitamin C, and other components that are suitable for your skin. Leave it for about 15 minutes and then rinse. As a substitute to mustard sauce, you could also use a mixture of 1/8 teaspoon mustard powder and one teaspoon honey.
4. Green Tea
Prepare some strong green tea and then freeze it into ice cubes. Rub the cube over the area with pimples for several minutes for as long as you can hold the cube. Green tea has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that are good for your skin.
Tomatoes are rich in antioxidant properties and can also act as skin astringent. Cut open a tomato and then rub the cut part directly over the pimple. Let it stay for about 10 minutes then rinse. Do it once or twice a day only, since excessive application may cause dryness to the skin.
Unlike skin tear, scabs and other skin problems that may be difficult to treat, pimples are more manageable. Before your wedding or other special occasion is coming up, you may still have time to get rid of your pimples with some of the ingredients we listed here.
