    Pimples are the common ailments many people suffering with that. I think the increasing amount of environment pollution is one of the main reasons of pimples. We should not use any creams or makeup unless we know their effects on our skin. Also cleanliness is very necessary in order to control pimples and acne.

    I am suffering from pimples for last two years and I have used lots of medicine to cure it.
    But I have not found any result. Now, I am using Aloe. One teaspoonful of Aloe Vera lump daily is very useful. Alternatively, aloe juice or aloe drinks can be taken. Such drinks are easily available in the market or aloe extract may be obtained at home. At present, I am quite better than before.

    Your posting is quite informative, but personally, I have followed a beauty routine for my skin care on daily basis. Apply a mixture of one tsp lime juice and same quantity of rose water on the face and leave it for half an hour. Wash the face with fresh water. I hope your will get positive result after 30 days of application to get rid of pimples. Also every night try to use fresh mint juice over the face for the treatment of pimples. It’s also quite effective for other skin infections.
