Home Remedies for Pimples

A pimple is a kind of comedo ( A comedo is a clogged hair follicle (pore) in the skin) that results from excess sebum and dead skin cells getting trapped in the pores of the skin.

Causes:

Sebaceous glands inside the pore of the skin produce sebum. When the outer layers of skin shed (a natural and continuous process, normally), dead skin and oily sebum left behind may bond together and form a blockage of the sebaceous gland at the base of the skin. This is most common when the skin becomes thicker at puberty.

What is SKIN TONER

In cosmetics, skin toner or simply toner refers to a lotion or wash designed to cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores, usually used on the face. Toners can be applied to the skin in different ways:

  1. On a cotton round. (This is the most frequently used method.)
  2. Spraying onto the face.
  3. By applying a tonic gauze facial mask—a piece of gauze is covered with toner and left on the face for a few minutes.

Some toners may cause some irritation to the skin if never used before. Users often apply serum and moisturiser after the toner has dried.
