Top 10 Ways to Get Rid of Pimples Fast

Pimples are an inflammation of the skin where the sebaceous glands or oil glands become infected with bacteria, swell, and fill with pus. Excess sebum secretion by the oil glands is the main cause of this problem. Though not a life-threatening condition, pimples can make a person feel miserable because of their appearance. There are many medications on the market to treat pimples, but they cost money abd can take time. Many natural remedies are effective in treating pimples within a very short time. Here are the top ten ways to get rid of pimples fast:

1) Baking Soda

Baking soda is an effective home remedy for getting rid of pimples because it helps exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells. To use baking soda, make a thick paste by mixing one teaspoon of baking soda with some water. Wash your skin well, leaving it slightly damp. Apply the paste on the affected areas and allow it to dry. Wash your face with warm water. Repeat the process twice a day for best results.

2) Cucumber

Cucumber is a rich source of potassium and vitamins such as A, C, and E. It also has a cooling and soothing effect on the skin. You can make a face mask by grinding one cucumber. Apply the mask on your face and allow fiteen minutes for it to dry. Wash your skin with warm water. This will help clean dirt and bacteria from your pores.

3) Garlic

Garlic is an anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-oxidant agent that can help get rid of pimples. The sulfur in garlic also promotes quick healing of pimples. Cut a fresh garlic clove into two pieces. Rub the garlic on the pimples and leave it for five minutes before washing the skin with warm water. Repeat the process three times a day.

4) Honey and cinnamon

Honey is a natural antibiotic that can speed the healing process, as well as help prevent infections. One way to use it is to mix honey and cinnamon together to make a paste and applying it over the pimples before going to bed. In the morning, there will be less inflammation and swelling. Wash off with warm water.

5) Ice

Ice can be used to quickly reduce the inflammation, redness, swelling of acne. It also helps to improve blood circulation to the affected area, tighten the pores, and remove dirt and oil accumulated on the skin. Either ice cubes or crushed ice can be used, whichever is available. Wrap the ice in a washcloth and hold it on the affected skin area for ten seconds. Wait a five minutes and repeat the process.

6) Lemon

A quick way to get rid of pimples is to use lemon juice. Lemon juice, which is rich in vitamin C, helps pimples dry up faster. Be sure to use fresh lemon juice rather than bottled juice, which has preservatives. Dip a cotton swab in fresh lemon juice and apply it to the pimples before going to bed. Wash your face in the morning with warm water.

7) Papaya

The papaya fruit has several properties that help in the treatment of pimples. It is a good source of vitamin A, and it has enzymes that help reduce inflammation and make your skin soft and smooth. Crush raw papaya pieces to extract the juice and apply it on the affected areas. Leave it on for fifteen minutes before rinsing it off with warm water


Steaming is great for your skin at any time, but especially when you have pimples. The steam will open your pores and allow your skin to get rid of trapped oil, dirt, and bacteria that can cause inflammation. Fill a bowl or pan with hot water and allow the steam to come in contact with your face for a few minutes. Rinse your face with warm water and, after your face drys, apply an oil-free moisturizer.

9) Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is quite effective for treating acne and pimples. It has anti-bacterial properties that help fight the bacteria that cause these skin problems. In addition, its soothing properties help reduce the redness and inflammation of pimples. It also helps dry out blackheads and whiteheads. Just dip a cotton ball into tea tree oil and dab it on the affected area. Rinse your face after fifteen minutes.

10) Toothpaste

The toothpaste that you brush with every day can be used to treat pimples quickly. It is most effective when used after the ice remedy. Use white toothpaste; rather than gel toothpaste. Apply the toothpaste on the affected skin area before going to bed. In the morning, wash your face with warm water, and you should see a significant improvement in the swelling. You can repeat the treatment in the daytime if you want. Just make sure that the toothpaste remains on the pimples for at least thirty minutes.

As with all treatments, some work better for some people than others. Pick the one you like best and try it. If that works great, stick with it. If not try others on the list until you find one that works for your condition.
