And the cure is not to turn to harsh chemicals or scrubs but to try the natural home remedies. Natural remedies are a good way to get rid of pimples permanently. Because they reach out to the root of the problems and cure them. Here are few remedies which you can try to get rid of the pimples :
1) Apple Cider Vinegar
Ingredients – pure apple cider vinegar, fresh water Directions – Wash your face with cold water and pat it dry. Use 1 part of vinegar to 3 parts of water. Dip a cotton ball into vinegar and apply directly to the pimples. Leave it for at least 10 minutes, or overnight. Apply several times a day and wash your face thoroughly each time. If you feel your skin is drying then use moisturizer. Reason – Apple cider vinegar is one of the best remedies. It kills the bacteria that causes the trouble. It also balances the pH of your skin, which in turn makes it harder for bacteria to stay. It also keeps excess oil away from your skin. But, don’t overdo it and dry out your skin.
2) Orange Peel
Ingredients – 2 orange peels, fresh water Directions – Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Grind your orange peels (you could use a blender) and add a little water to create a paste. Add only a little at a time, as too much will make it thin and runny. Apply it to your face and problem areas. Keep it for 20-25 minutes. Rinse off completely with water, pat your face dry, and apply a good moisturize. Reason – Oranges are rejuvenating and refreshing. Acne that is caused by bacteria and extra oil/dead skin cells clogging up pores may improve with the use of an orange peel on face because of vitamin C, citric acid, and its astringent properties. Vitamin C is helpful because it promotes the growth of new healthy cells, keeping your skin in a better condition.
3) Banana Peel
Ingredients – 1 banana peel Directions – Take the banana peel, and rub in a circular motion all over your face. When you feel your face is covered with it completely, let it sit for at least 30 minutes and then rinse it off.

Rubbing a banana peel on your face can reduce the redness, obviousness, and discomfort of pimple.

After its temperature has lowered slightly, place your face above the bowl, and drape a towel over your head to trap the steam. After 10-15 minutes, remove the towel and pat your face dry.

Using a cotton pad, soak up the juice or garlic water and apply it on your spots. Reason – Garlic is good natural remedy for acne because of its antibacterial properties. It helps reduce the severity of your breakouts and prevent them in the future. If you can get the juice from the garlic, great, if you can’t, mashing it up and putting it in some water is fine. Never, ever, ever, apply garlic to your skin without diluting it first.
