Looking attractive is not just limited to wearing good clothes, an attractive skin is also part of the whole package. Pimples are one of the most stressful things to spot in morning, they are red, ugly, painful and can also be infectious. Here are some tips to help rid your face of pimples.
Keep your face clean
Washing your face is one of the most important steps of your skin care routine, even if you are not having an acne problem, washing your face twice a day helps to remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. While washing your face, use a mild face cleanser and wash only with warm or cold water as using hot water can cause pimples.
Keep your hair clean
To avoid having pimples, it is not just necessary to keep your face oil-free, your hair should also not be oily. Leaving overnight oil on your hair can cause pimples as the hair touching your face will make your skin oily. Wash your hair regularly and don’t let them fall on your face.
Ice soothes the skin, most especially the affected area. Applying ice on the skin will remove the oil and dirt trapped inside and reduces the redness and swelling. To get rid of an eruption, put an ice cube in a cloth and gently press it against the affected skin.
Toothpaste also helps to reduce pimples. The white toothpaste is preferable in this case(e.g. Colgate). Wash your face with warm water and a cleanser and pat dry. Then take a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and apply it only to the affected areas. Keep it for a couple of hours or overnight and then wash it. Your pimples would be very much less visible afterward.
