Daily Health Tips update for September 9:
Pimples aren’t just a teenage problem. They can affect us throughout adulthood, no matter our age, gender or skin type. The next time you have a breakout don’t reach for the tube of white cream you picked up at the store. You can create your own pimple remedy at home, with just a few ingredients from your kitchen.
Start by reaching into the freezer for an ice cube. Applying ice can ease swelling from zits, just as it does when you ice other areas of the body. A 50/50 blend of honey and tomato juice can ease the redness that often accompanies pimples. For another herbal make-it-yourself pimple formula, take 3 mint leaves and bring them to a boil in 1 cup of water. Mix three drops of the water with a teaspoon of turmeric powder and leave it on pimples for 20 minutes. Whatever you do to get rid of pimples, popping them is not the answer. Doing so can cause scars.
