Here we will explore the top DIY home remedies for pimples and acne. Using these home remedies for pimples will make you love looking at the mirror every time you take a look at your beautiful face.  

But first, where do Pimples come to Form?

Pimples form when the sebaceous glands of your skin produce too much sebum, which clogs the glands and causes pimples to show up. The most common spots where the pimples usually are your forehead, cheeks, jawline, and chin. They can also appear on your back, chest, arms, and thighs.

Why do I have pimples?

There are lots of reasons why you’re having pimples, usually hormonal changes, medical reasons, and lifestyle things that you do.

  • If you’re using certain medications, that can cause pimples
  • Using makeup and beauty products that aren’t suitable for your skin
  • You’re not very good at hygiene and keeping your skin clean
  • Some  health problems like Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) cause pimples as a side effect
  • You can have pimples during periods of hormonal change such as puberty and pregnancy
  • Diets that have a high concentration of refined sugar, salt, and carbohydrates can also cause pimples

What to do when you see a pimple?

Everyone’s first instinct to handle a pimple is to pop it out. We all hurry up to the mirror every time we see a pimple to pop it out and get all that disgusting gunk from there. Well, you need to fight that urge and stop doing that. Here are a few things that you should do instead.

  • Stop touching your face with your hands all the time, especially when they’re not washed from bacteria and other harmful stuff
  • Follow some good skin-care habits like cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection
  • Use some of the home remedies that I will describe below
  • Don’t dry the pimple because that might cause a scar 
  • Avoid oil-based products
