I know it's difficult to resist popping that zit. Just look at it! Its bright green color is begging you to pop it so it will be finally free…

However, popping them is just gonna make it worse. It will be left open, welcoming every bacteria flying near its airspace. Then after a few days, a hideous discolored scar will take its place which will be harder and more expensive to treat as only skin laser treatments can eliminate them. Our parents used to say letting a zit be is the best way to handle it. They say it will go away naturally after a few days. But with an important date/ interview/ meeting, etc. around the corner, you can't wait that long as you'd be embarrassed by your gigantic green friend. In order to avoid potentially humiliating scenarios such as these, here are some home remedies you can do on your own to eliminate your pimple ASAP.

Honey to the P

Honey is the first choice when it comes no home remedies. It is considered to be nature's antibiotic as it is loaded with vitamins and minerals that would help clean the accumulated dirt on your face. You need to mix two tablespoons of the sweet stuff and a teaspoon of cinnamon and paste it all over your face. Leave it on for ten minutes straight then rinse it off with water.

Toothpaste Facial

The first time I've heard about this, I thought it was a joke. After personally trying it out, I stopped laughing because toothpaste as it turns out, is the real deal. Well, it's understandable to some level as it is loaded with whitening chemicals and the menthol's soothing effect can help in shrinking the pimple. To experience the full effect, make sure you rinse your face first before putting on a dab of toothpaste on your problem areas. Leave it there to settle overnight then rinse it off after waking up. Don't be shocked if the pimple is rinsed away, too.

Gnarly Garlic

I know it sounds gross but unless you're a vampire, this tricky home remedy won't cause you death. The garlic's strong scent and taste prove that it's loaded with antiseptic properties. These smelly little helpers can help kill the bad bacteria taking shelter in your pores. What you do is cut a clove in half and rub the open half directly on your acne. Another thing you can do is mince some onions up and apply it directly on your pimples then let it settle for a good twenty minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. Don't be ashamed if you started crying. Those tears prove your determination to do whatever it takes to eliminate those pesky pimples.
