Pimples, the jewel on your face

The truth any pimple bearers will tell you, "I hate it when other pays too much attention on my zits(pimple)!", so by this, I hope it sends clear message out there to those who have nothing else better to do, STOP pointing at his/her red coloured jewels on the face if this will cause the victim much distress (especially to long time sufferers). I called it jewels because not everyone has it and for self-comforting. T_T

The greatest villain for this problem is blackheads! As innocent as it looks, it usually developed into major inflammatory and so on. Of course popping blackheads is the least desirable if we are not professional enough to do it and peel-off mask is the last thing a sensitive skin needs. I have tried once peel off mask, and the more i used it, the more spots i saw developing on my face! Although i like the satisfaction of cleanliness after using peel-offs but i had to stop.

Scrubbing too is the last thing on earth you want to do on a skin full of problem. Either that it will enlarge your pores or aggravate further the condition.

Even chosing a moisturiser is a headache. I was told by the beautician that acne-prone skin shall not use cream moisturisers, only use gel type. However, with air humidity in malaysia, it's not easy to survive using moisturisers as acne-prone skin are usually of combination to oily type. More oils, more blackheads, more pimples. I was told that a dry skin may also cause pimples!

Oil blotting paper. Thou shall not use too many a piece else your skin will produce oil uncertainly.

Makeups. Biggest headache. You have to choose the right foundation etc etc, go through proper cleansing steps and make sure not even a molecule of foundation is left stuck inside your pores.

I admit these jewels are not hard to get rid of. I found out that, by having a passion for a flawless skin is already the first big step of having one. You must enjoy imagining yourself having a porcelain, silky smooth skin, a princess who is the radiant of the King and Queen. Plus together with good combination of skin care products, you will certainly shine( hehe self-comforting again).
Found this from

What is a Blackhead?
Blackheads can be a recurring nuisance that cause pimples and acne. They are caused when natural oil from the skin called sebum collects and hardens inside of the pores. The oil clogs the pore, and mixes with the toxins trying to escape from your skin. The toxins and the oil combined create glue inside of your pore. This glue is hiding underneath a black oxidized tip that is exposed and pops out just above the surface of the skin. This black tip is known as a blackhead. If you have oily or combination skin, there is a good chance you are going to battle with blackheads.

Natural Blackhead Solutions
There are many natural solutions to remove blackheads from your face. Focus these solutions in trouble areas and especially around the T-zone, known to be an area prone to blackheads.

Natural beauty experts claim this is one of the most powerful anti-blackhead herbs. Make a paste out of water and fresh crushed fenugreek leaves. Apply this paste to your face for 10 – 15 minutes and rinse with warm water. Repeat every night before bed for a blackhead free face.

Warm some honey and place it on trouble areas for 10 – 15 minutes. Wash off. Honey is a well known and effective method of removing blackheads from the skin.

Baking Soda & Water
Combine 3 tablespoons of baking soda with 3 tablespoons of water. Rub this solution on your skin for a few minutes, and rinse with warm water for effective blackhead extraction.

Lemon Juice
Use lemon juice directly from the lemon on areas affected with blackheads two to three times a day. The juice will help tighten your pores and make the environment of the face less prone to blackheads. Limes will work just as well if no lemons are available.

Rose & Oatmeal Mask
This treatment is great to get rid of the blackheads you already have and prevent future break outs. Mix oatmeal powder with rose water to make a paste. Spread the paste on your face with fingertips and allow it to sit for 15 minutes before rinsing. Focus on the T-zone and other problems areas like the chin. Rinse this blackhead removing mask off with cold water. The cold water closes the newly cleaned pores, protecting against future blackheads.

Grated raw potatoes can be used to treat all kinds of skin problems including pimples, wrinkles, whiteheads and blackheads. Pack potatoes directly on problem areas to extract blackheads.

Radish Seeds
A paste made out of ground radish seeds and water applied to the face right on the site of a blackhead is an effective blemish remover. Leave the paste on for about 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

I think I would like tht potato one as last year when i continuously ate home made mash potatoes, my complexion begin to improve. Maybe this year I shall try to grate it on my face and thou shall see the results. I mean it has worked well for Christina Aguilera.
