And, I would say pimples shouldn’t be ignored at any cost. Now, some of you might be thinking about visiting a dermatologist and get treatment. But, you don’t have to do that anymore as I have brought you the list of best home remedies for speed recovery of your pimples here…

Apple Cider Vinegar:

I would say this will give you the best results when it comes to pimple-cure. Wait, but how? Well, it could kill the bacteria that may be responsible for your pimples by becoming alkaline. It has the ability to balance the pH of the human skin thereby making it unsuitable for the survival of bacteria. The astringent nature of apple cider vinegar would help to dry up the excess oil on your skin.

Take vinegar and mix it with fresh water in a ratio of 1:3. Now, apply the mixture directly to the blemishes after washing your face and pat drying it. After leaving it as is for ten minutes or overnight, wash your face thoroughly.

Ice Cubes:

This is a very good remedy if your pimples are not infected completely yet. Ice cubes have the capacity to decrease the swelling when at the same time being able to urge the sebaceous glands to contract thereby pushing out the excess oil, as well as the microorganisms from the affected regions. In addition, the ice cubes would help to improve the blood circulation to the affected areas.

How to use?

Hold the ice cubes or even crushed ice on the affected area by wrapping them in a fabric and hold them on the affected area for some time (say few seconds). Repeat the process for a few times in a day for the best results.

Garlic:

Garlic is a wonderful medicine for many conditions with excellent antiviral, antifungal, and antiseptic properties and yes, it would render a faster cure for your pimples. Why garlic is the best home remedy for pimples is because of its sulfur content. Sulfur is good at promoting the healing process.

How to use?

Take a garlic clove, cut into two halves, rub them on the affected areas, and leave it as such for at least five minutes before washing your skin with warm water.

Honey:

If you can get pure and natural honey from the market, then I would say you have the best home treatment for your pimples at your hands. Honey is a natural disinfectant which could kill the bacteria that may be the cause of your pimples.

Apply the pure natural honey directly in the affected areas of your skin using sterile cotton after washing your face and pat drying it. Leave the application as such for at least half an hour before washing with lukewarm water.
