Pimples on face is a natural phenomenon for guys and girls, it is due to hormonal changes. Many get worried, scratch them and in the long run disfigure their face. It is always best not to apply bare finger or nails, in the worst case show your face to the vapor coming from hot water, then with cotton dipped in some antiseptic, remove the rice like thing gently. You may try the following too. Apply garlic paste over them or rub one or two cloves of cut garlic; this prevents infection. Apply egg white with a cotton swab, wash with warm water after 15 minutes; this prevents recurrence of pimples. Mix paste of sandal wood, tender neem leaves with rose water, apply at bed time, wash with warm water in morning. Apply paste made from powder of orange skin dried in shade and mixed in water, apply at bed time, wash with warm water in morning. Always avoid oily, spicy foods, keep your bowel clean. [b]Try these and tell me. Avoid doctors the creams, liniments, lotions gives temporary relief, so long as you use they work; some doctors may give you Tetracycline capsules; the scars you get once are very difficult to remove, are almost permanent.

Oh ya, I read somewhere that we can remove black spots on the face with the help of rice and cinnamon powder. Take rice mash it until smooth and add ground cinnamon to it and stir/fried without using oil to change color to yellow and then leave, after it become cold/normal temperature, you may rub gently on the face. You can focus on areas that are black spots. rub it evenly. Must do this twice a week.

At the age that I'm at now, I really don't have acne anymore and even when I was younger, I really didn't have a lot except for on my forehead and I tend to think that the reason that I had pimples on my forehead was because of the fact that I wore bangs and that part of my head was more oily than the rest of my face. With that said, I found that the best thing that I could do to prevent them was to make sure and keep my face as oil free as possible.

hi, actually we should not panic if we have seen any pimples in our face because when we apply many cream and soap it will only irritate it and will more have many pimples,sometimes pimples are came from dirt in our face or excessive oily in our face.

Keep your face skin is always clean! And carefully when using cosmetics! Using cream straight pimples if they're too much! Visiting your doctor if you think you can do any things with pimples!

I have struggled with my skin since I was a teenager, but I think that I might finally be getting on top of it as my skin seems to be clearing up. The best thing that you can do is to get into a routine of skin care which should involve washing your face one each morning and evening. The best thing that I have found to do some good is drinking a lot of water. It might not seem like the best thing in the world to be able to do, but it really does help and even though it's so simple, it can make your skin a lot more hydrated and therefore brighter.

I usually just get two or three pimples at a time and whenever I get them I only use salicylic acid cream. I apply it with cotton buds. It is very effective because the pimples dry out in just one day and there are usually no scars and whenever it leaves scars, it will fade in about two weeks because of the moisturizer that I use which removes pimple scars.

I totally agree with your suggestions especially where you said to avoid oily and spicy foods. Once I eliminated these food from my diet, my skin started to clear up. I would also like to add the following tips: Using a toner after you wash your face (witch hazel and lemon juice are inexpensive examples), washing your bed linen often, making sure your face products are pH balanced(Not too alkaline, not too acidic), drink plenty of water, and use tea tree oil and a q-tip to dissolve pimples.

Welcome to mylot, nice tips again, my bed linen is changed every alternate day, but has that any thing to do with pimples?

I'd rather use toothpaste on the pimple - I heard it draws moisture from the infected place - or use Clearasil or some similar solution when it comes to acne. It's a bit easier.

kalyni madam: nice you have given good suggestion for people suffering from pimples. As you have rightly stated this problem is more prevalent for boys and girls in their teen age. I am reminded of my teen age when I was getting pimples. Now with age advancing no such problem for me.

Hi Kalyni! Good to see you. Thank you for your advice on how to take care of pimples on the face. I get really tiny rash like pimples on my forehead. I think it is to do with the oil in my skin and hair. Thanks for advising not to use the fingers or the nails on these.. I do it.. I should stop that... and just use either cotton balls or a wash cloth. Thanks!

Sally, at this age, if you have pimples, it is not due to hormones, but may be oily skin lol Happy posting, cheers. Kalyani
