Pimples have a tendency of making an appearance at almost the wrong time. It’s like they are aware that an important family function or a party is round the corner. Although, they are a very common phenomenon, they cause a lot of inconvenience. They not only become the most prominent feature on the face but also, can cause the skin to become irritable, itchy or cause pain. Most importantly, they are a big shout out that the skin isn’t in good condition. But, don’t you stress about those petty little spots. We at Styleshaala did a little research to know more about the zits we mutually detest and found a simple and effective remedy to get rid of it.
What are Pimples?
Pimples are an inflammation of the skin caused mainly due to accumulated dirt on the face.
How are pimples caused?
Pimples are mainly caused due to bacteria, excessive oil and dirt accumulation on the skin or due to dead skin cells. This could be mainly due to exposure to pollution, sweating and dry/ oily skin. Not cleaning the face often can cause the skin to be infected which could lead to an outburst.
What is the Solution?
The solution is easier spoken of than actually experienced. Pimples can be caused differently for different types of skin. A remedy that may suit one skin type may not suit another thus, making the situation worse. And if not handled with care, it can lead to an annoying, permanent mark on the skin. Hence, the best remedy for this natural yet unpleasant red spot is using natural products that have a soothing effect on the skin. And most importantly provide quick and long lasting solution.

IMPORTANT #STYLESHAALA TIPS:
- Avoid using the paste around the eyes
The paste may cause a burning sensation to the eyes. Hence, avoid using it around the eyes.
