Do you have pimple? Aren't you worried about them? Don't those pimples leave scars when they go? Do you have any home made remedies for them? I've tried many things and nothing worked out for me. Do you have any working remedy?

1. Foods such as corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean and other oils rich in Essential Fatty Acids help to curb acne, pimples, blackheads. 2. Regular Yoga exercises will also improve skin and overall health. 3. Vitamin A and zinc are popular supplements that have scientific studies linking them to healthy skin and the cure of dermatology problems. 4. If you're prone to Acne or pimples is to avoid using heavy make-up – in fact, it is preferable to avoid make-up altogether. For an effective cure, stay as natural as possible.

Nice discussion..Many teenagers suffer from this problem. Fortunately I had never suffered from this problem though my brother had this problem. Its better to drink a lots of water if you are having this problem... And one of the important home made remedy is applying a paste consisting sandalwood,neem leaf and raw tumeric paste,on those affected areas.... Don't touch your nails on the pimples,it may lead to permanent mark..... Oils of the skin must be removed at regular interval using a good oil control toner.

Mix corn flour with egg white and apply on your face. Let is dry completely for 1/2 hour. Dip your hands in warm water and massage your face and wash off. This when repeated regularly gives you a smooth skin. Take some fresh fenugreek leaves and make a paste to apply on the acne pimples overnight. Honey is a great remedy for pimples and acne. It kills bacteria and leaves the skin pimple free.

A mask of grated apple mixed with a little honey is an excellent remedy for pimples. Most facial masks can be applied to the skin for 15-20 minutes then washed off with warm water, followed by a cold rinse. Another overnight home remedy for zapping a zit is to put a dab of toothpaste on it to help dry it out. You may need to test this on a short-term basis to make sure it doesn't irritate your pimple. Calamine lotion will have the same drying effect.

Lemons, tomatoes and witch hazel are all proven to fight and keep pimples or acne at bay. Lemons and tomatoes are both fruits, yes fruits, with a second quality not known to all humankind. What you want to do is cut it open. Cutting it in fours goes a long way. Take each piece of lemon or tomato and rub it on your face. You may have a little something left on your face. Just leave it there. It's for your own good. They will make pimples disappear almost overnight. It they don't disappear they will be smaller the next time you check.
