Summer’s here and so are your colorful, skin-revealing clothes! But can’t show your skin off due to pimples and acne? Not anymore! We bring you 5 simple ways to ditch pimples this summer with no traces of them.
1. Rose Water
Known as a natural toner, rose water brings a cooling effect to the skin and prevents acne. Simply freeze rose water in an ice cube tray and rub the cubes on your face and other acne-affected areas. Within minutes, see a refreshing new you!
Rose water is also used as a supporting ingredient in face masks.
2. Neem Leaves
The popular medicinal leaf ‘neem’, mostly used in Ayurvedic treatment, is a pimple healer. Boil a bunch of fresh neem leaves in half a saucepan of water for 20 minutes and allow it to cool. Then remove the leaves and apply the neem serum onto your pimples and let it dry. Wash off with cold water and enjoy the rejuvenating effect.
Alternately, you can also make a paste of neem leaves and apply on your pimples.
3. Fresh Basil Leaves
A holy plant and a strong contender in the ancient science of Ayurveda, tulsi (basil leaves) is the herbal treatment for acne. Make a paste of a handful of basil leaves and apply as a mask on your face and body. Clean up with cold water after 15 to 20 minutes. This is the most natural way to push away heat boils.
Tulsi can also be eaten raw or drank in tea or a cooler.
Turmeric brings a glow to your face. No wonder brides pamper themselves in it before their big day! And turmeric removes acne and pimples as well. Indulge in it orally or apply on your acne – both will act on your acne and make them disappear. A very effective face mask is a mixture of turmeric and oatmeal which exfoliates and moisturizes your skin.
5. Coconut Water
Coconut water is a natural health drink and even athletes are advised to drink it. It keeps you hydrated in the scorching heat. And this valuable gift of nature does wonders when you wash your face with it. Coconut water brings a glowing look to your face and sets you free from pimples leaving you spotless.
