how to combat pimple

Don’t you just hate it when the nastiest pimples show up right before you have a big event to attend!? It might be a regular nightmare, but we have a solution.

We have four home remedies that can help combat pimples and acne overnight. But before we jump into the home remedies, let us understand what causes acne. 

What Is Acne and How Is It Caused?

We have oil glands all over our faces, necks, shoulders, and backs. These oil glands tend to clog the pores, and this results in the bacteria in our pores multiplying and causing acne and pimples.

Oily products, excessive sweating, and hormonal imbalances can also cause acne outbursts. But here are a few home remedies that can help keep pimples at bay:



It's a common misconception that acne only affects individuals with oily or combination skin. While oily skin is more prone to acne, it can affect dry skin as well. 

If you have dry skin and acne, honey could be a good home remedy option for you. It is a hydrating ingredient that gives your skin moisture. The antibacterial properties in honey target your pimples and fight them off. 

You'll get amazing results by dabbing a little honey over your pimples or acne spots and letting it sit for a few hours before washing it off with lukewarm water.



Turmeric has rich healing properties and it works wonders for acne and pimples. It acts as an antiseptic and protects the skin. Its antioxidant properties can help in scar removal as well. 

Mix a teaspoon of natural turmeric with drinking water or rosewater and make a paste. Apply this paste on your face and over your acne spots and watch them all vanish overnight. But don’t leave it on for too long, otherwise, it can stain your face.
