Pimples, dark spots and acne scars.
They ruin your selfies.
They make you feel socially awkward.
And even worse…
They ruin your self esteem.
If you’re like me the minute you spot a pimple you want it gone asap. Picking your pimples may not be the best way to get rid of them. However, in the event you do pick your pimples I’ve discovered a home regimen that can get rid of the acne scar that’s left behind. Well, actually two home regimens.
The first is simple, use toothpaste. It really works!
I’m not sure what it is, but whenever you feel a pimple underneath your skin the best way to keep it from showing up on your face is to sleep with toothpaste on the spot overnight. You will wake up the next morning pimple-free. The best part of this quick fix is that toothpaste is inexpensive, so you won’t waste money on a skin treatment that may not even work quickly.
Now, on to my all-time favorite home regimen. This DIY Acne Treatment requires three ingredients; lemons, baking soda and water. Follow the steps below to create your own spot treatment that’s sure to zap away those horrid little creatures.
Step 1: Cut your lemon
Step 2: Pour a teaspoon of baking soda in a bowl
Step 3: Take your finger and dab the lemon juice over your pimple
Step 4: Take a different finger and dab the baking soda over that same pimple
(You’re going to feel a tingling sensation once you do this, but it’s just the ingredients working together to zap your pimple)
Step 5: Take a warm towel after 3-5 minutes and rinse your face of the ingredients
(You should repeat these steps twice a day until you see the pimple diminish)
I hope this helps you stay pimple-free!
