Have you woken up one morning with a cluster of little pimples on your face, wondering how in the devil's world did that happen?
- I woke up couple of days ago with little white commodones around my chin area, absolutely horrified! Yes, I have been off my diet plan just a little bit. My weekend involved few glasses of yummy Malbec, not drinking enough water, eating chocolates and well maybe some late night greasy comfort food. Perhaps it's the weather and the unbearable heat ! I usually get one stubborn pimple occasionally, but a cluster? Well anyway, I had to fix it right away, before the little commodones blew up like mini white balloons on my face.
Here is my my quick fix DIY recipe, besides drinking litres of water to flush out all the toxins.
- Fresh Aloe Vera
- 3-4 drops of Lacto Calamine ( Combination- Normal) or for oily skin, if you want to dry it out.
- 1-2 drops of lemon juice.
Apply over affected area and leave for 30 mins or until it dries out.
I made this and left it in the refrigerator and used it twice a day for 2 days. They began to dry out slowly.
The aloe vera cools the inflammation while the Lacto-Calamine and lemon juice dries it out, without leaving a mark.
Always let your pimples dry out, never pick them!
