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.
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.
- Malai(clotted cream) – as required
- Besan flour – two tablespoons
- Take malai and add it to the besan flour gradually until it forms a paste-like consistency, then transfer this mixture to a bowl.
- Apply the mixture on the affected area and leave it in for a good 10 minutes then rinse with clean cold water.
For better results, follow this method twice a week.
Why it Works:
Malai should be your go-to remedy as it is rich in anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Applying malai on acne-prone areas will minimize them.
Zinc in besan has been shown to fight the infections that cause your face to erupt with acne. Secondly, it also helps control excess sebum production and soothes inflamed skin.
