Acne or pimples develops when the hair follicles on the face, chest or back are clogged with oil and dead skin. Each pore is connected to a sebaceous gland, which produces an oily substance called sebum. Extra sebum can plug up pores, causing the growth of a bacteria. Pimples are more than just a skincare concern. It can also be painful, persistent, and uncomfortable for the person who develops it.
Makeup is a temporary solution as it can only camouflage, not cure your skin problems. Using cheap or bad quality cosmetic products can make your skin greasy and further aggravate the problem. One of the easiest ways to get rid of pimples is to stick to natural home remedies as they are safe and reliable and don’t burn a hole in your pocket.
- Cinnamon – one stick
- Powder the cinnamon stick with a mixer grinder.
- Transfer this powder to a bowl and gradually add water to it until it forms a paste-like consistency.
- Apply the mixture on the affected area and leave it in for around 30 minutes then rinse with clean cold water.
For better results, follow this method every other night before bed.
Why it Works:
Cinnamon also has antimicrobial properties. According to an article in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Science Invention, cinnamon can kill or suppress the E. coli, Staphylococcus, and Candida Albicans microbes.
Cinnamon also has astringent properties. Astringents help to shrink pores, which can make the skin appear smoother and more even.
