Nothing mars the beauty of the skin than reddish swollen pimples. They are not only painful, but can also be a pain to remove. There is a lot of truth in the saying “Prevention is better than cure”. And if you go to any dermatologist in Bangalore, he too will say the same thing when it comes to protecting your skin. Wash your face at regular intervals to prevent dust and oil build-up, and also remove your makeup before you go to sleep.

You can consult the best dermatologist in Bangalore for treatment of pimples. But, if the condition is mild and just at the beginning stages, you can try some of these home remedies.

Honey is a natural antibiotic that prevents infections and allows your skin to heal faster. Just dip a cotton swab in honey and apply it over the pimple. Leave it for some time and wash it in warm water. Repeat this process many times a day till the pimples are cleared. You can make a paste of cinnamon and honey and apply it on your face, leave it overnight and wash it off in the morning.

Lemon is an astringent that is also found to be effective in removing pimples. Apply fresh lemon juice on the affected areas and leave it overnight. Lemon juice can sting and cause slight pain and irritation. So, you can mix lemon juice with cinnamon to reduce its sting. This home remedy is not recommended for those with sensitive skin as it can cause swelling or redness.

If you have nothing much in your kitchen, then heed to your bathroom and pick your toothpaste. Apply a little of the toothpaste on the pimples and leave it for about 30 minutes before washing it off. For best results, you should use the white toothpaste, and not the gel variety.

Yes, ice can also help remove pimples. Whether you have ice cubes or crushed ice in the fridge, put the ice in a clean cloth and wrap them tightly. Then place the cloth with ice in a thick plastic cover and place it directly over the pimple. Though this home remedy may not give you lasting effects, you will have immediate relief from the pain and swelling.

If the pimples are recurring and don’t reduce with repeated treatment using home remedies, then you should definitely consult the best dermatologist in Bangalore. He/she will be able to identify the cause of the pimple and give you a comprehensive medical treatment with tablets and ointment to help cure this skin problem.
