Banish pimples with these 6 home remedies from your kitchen

We often spot a pimple on our face when there is an important event to attend such as a party or someone’s wedding. Popping them isn’t the best thing to do but you can certainly manage pimples in a better way by using these six herbal remedies.


Lemon juice


Lemons contain vitamin C and phytonutrients called flavonoids that have a strong antioxidant as well as antibiotic action. Free radicals generated during the metabolic reactions within the body can damage the healthy cells of the body, causing inflammation and swelling. The antioxidants in lemon restrict the action of these free radicals and this makes lemon juice an excellent remedy for pimples.  A word of caution regarding lemon juice – it can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and therefore, do not venture out in the sun when you have applied it on your face.




    Squeeze out the juice from a freshly-cut lemon and dab a little directly on to the pimple.

    Leave it on overnight and wash the next morning.

    Mix a tablespoon of groundnut oil into an equal quantity of freshly squeezed lemon juice and apply over the entire face.

    This provides long-term preventive action against blackheads that may later turn into pimples. Did you know these other beauty benefits of lemons?




Garlic is one the wonder foods of India that has remarkable medicinal properties ranging from digestive and antibiotic action to fighting against high cholesterol levels. Garlic is also said to have the action of cleansing toxins from the blood, resulting in blemish-free, glowing skin free from pimples.




    Remove the outer skin of garlic and rub a single clove on the spot where the pimple has sprouted to see immediate results.

    Grind a few cloves of garlic, mix with a little curd and use this face pack on the area where you see the pimples. Also get rid of dandruff with garlic.
