Pimples also called as acne and zit are mostly found on the face. There are many types of pimples- papules, pustules, nodules, and cysts. Pustules are hard red inflamed pimples that don’t contain pus. We will be attacking these pimples. They are mostly caused because of the overactive oil glands and if left open to bacteria, they will get worse. Stressed? Well, do not take stress because taking stress will augment it. Take a deep breath, drink a glass of cold water which heals everything and continue reading. Let us dive into the world of chemical-free, all natural and organic strategies to get pimple free skin.
1. Do not take the stress
As already mentioned stop taking the stress. There are two types of stress. Eustress is a good stress, the optimum level of stress required to do the work and then there is distress which is harmful to our body. I know you are getting late, you have deadlines, maybe a test, a big project, but calm down. It can be done and will be done better with a peaceful mind. Stress will only make your hormones like prolactin to secrete more in your body, which will lead to the production of sebum. Take a deep breath, have some patience and take this step to bid farewell to your zit.
2. Drink water
Being the life-giving substance, water heals everything. It will regulate your body temperature, and keep your skin hydrated. Drink 4 liters of water daily. If you do not like how bland the water tastes, then add one tablespoon of lemon juice in it along with salt and pepper.
3. Buy bye sugar
Eliminate sugar entirely from your diet. Sugar causes insulin level to spike which prompts inflammation. Natural sources of sweet like jaggery should be used instead. Jaggery not only keeps pimples away but also fights the harmful effects of air pollution.
4. Say no to makeup
Do not wear heavy makeup. Makeup contains a lot of harmful, toxic chemicals that go into our bloodstream and affect the well-being of our body. Not only that, makeup products, if not maintained well, can lead to bacteria production. Face’s epidermis being very sensitive reacts by becoming red and oily.
5. Wash your hands before you touch your face
You must wash your hands before you touch your face. You touch many dirty things in a day – cell phone, pen, your hair, etc. These things are full of germs, if you touch your dirty hand on your face, there is no way you can escape the attack of germs that cause pimples.
6. Do not put your face on a pillow
Everyone wants to have an acne free face but mistakes like putting the face on pillow might get your skin dirtier. Your pillow if not washed regularly has many sinister germs lingering on it ready to get transferred to your face. To prevent them from harming your skin, do not put your face on an unwashed pillow. To add to this- do wash your towel regularly.
