If pimples tend to pop up regularly, you might experience a little hyperpigmentation and scarring. In order to combat this, it’s wise to focus on spot treatments. Use an acne spot treatment that contains benzoyl peroxide in it. Wear gloves to avoid the spreading of bacteria. Wait until a pimple is large enough to gently pop it too.

Once the puss and liquid come out, apply the benzoyl peroxide treatment to an open pimple. The medicine will penetrate and heal the area. It’s wise to do this treatment before bed. The following day, use lemon juice or another natural lightener to avoid hyperpigmentation and permanent scarring of the facial skin.

    • Woot, that’s great to hear – Not like the face in your profile pic here in the comment section lol

  1. I use a clay mask with cucumber once a week, and a cucmber-based face wash morning and night. I usually use a brand called Simple for moisturising my face after I wash my face, it has nothing harsh or artificial in it. Remember to use only a delicate moisturiser on your eyes, again I use Simple, and it is best to use your ring finger to apply this, moving away from the nose, as it applies the least pressure to this delicate area.

    I only occasionally get spots now, and again Simple comes to the rescue with it’s Rapid Action Spot Zapper, just apply on the spot as soon as you see the spot and it should fade away in days! The most important thing to remember is to NEVER pop or burst spots, as it could scar your face.

    • It sounds like you’ve found what products work best for your skin – and that’s great! It takes some women decades before they get the best products for them. I’ve used a cucumber mask before and it was wonderfully refreshing.

  2. I’ve been working on my skin since I began afraid of getting old at age 20 LOL. Don’t get me started on the myriad of beauty lotions and potions I have going on in my bathroom cabinet, but there are 2 staples I’ve used for a few decades and that’s Witchhazel for toning and cleaning of the skin after washing. It shrinks pours, cleans left behind debris and doesn’t dry out the skin because it’s natural and no alcohol. Also, I clean my makeup off with natural coconut oil. It takes everything off, leaves soft skin and has lots of healthy benefits. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you’ve seen my FB age, you’ll know I look pretty good for a chick at 103! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

  3. Great advice ๐Ÿ™‚
    I really like the one about spot treatment.
    I already realized, as someone with super oily skin, that sheet masks… sigh… they’re just a no-go for me… I don’t really like the feel of them anyway but I have so many xD haha well… I’m sure they’re still good to use once in a while. I def prefer clay/mud masks.
