Try these top 5 natural remedies:

  1. Baking Soda

Create an exfoliant using a teaspoon of baking soda with some lemon juice or water. Apply this paste on the affected area, leave on for a few minutes, and rinse off thoroughly. If you are lucky, you just might see immediate results after trying out this treatment. Use twice daily but make sure to only keep the baking soda on the skin for a few minutes as this can cause irritation if used for a long time.

  1. Garlic

It is amazing that garlic itself has a lot of uses yet is not hailed as the wonder spice of home remedies. The anti-microbial agents in garlic act fast in combating skin problems; thus, this is a good option for pimples. Simply slice a fresh clove of garlic in half and rub the juice on the pimples. Leave on for 5 minutes and wash off thoroughly.
