The first thing that comes to your mind when you spot a new pimple is to mercilessly finish it by hook or by crook. While it’s really tempting to pop a pimple (believe us, we understand), it is the worst thing you could do to your skin. It can leave you with life-long scars and trigger more breakouts. So, keep your hands to yourself and try these five effective and harmless ways to deal with pimples.

Apply tea tree oil

An effective home remedy to nix pesky pimples is to apply tea tree oil on them. It has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that not only clears pimples but also reduces inflammation and leaves skin moisturised.

Spot treat with benzoyl peroxide

The best way to treat annoying pimples is to apply an over-the-counter, topical medication with benzoyl peroxide in it. It fights acne-causing bacteria and heals the pimple really quickly. Also, it reduces inflammation and soothes skin.

Trust aloe vera for quick healing

Aloe vera has healing properties and can reduce the redness and irritation that comes with pimples. Apply a small amount of freshly extracted aloe vera gel and leave it overnight. Wash it off in the morning. Do this for a couple of days and your pimple will be gone.

Cleanse your face

Acne occurs because of excess oil on the face. Keep your face squeaky clean and oil-free by washing it with a face wash that targets the problem. Try Ponds Pure White Anti-Pollution + Purity Face Wash. It has a Thymo-T formula that reduces pimples in three days. Use it twice a day to get rid of your pimples.

Place a green tea bag on them

Green tea is filled with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties which means that it works on pimples by destroying the bacteria and healing the inflamed skin. Place a green tea bag or apply freshly brewed green tea on your face to detoxify skin and keep acne at bay.
