Acne or pimples are the bane of a person’s life. Nobody likes to step out with zits and pimples all over the face.

You can use tea tree oil to treat pimples. This oil is obtained from the Melaleuca alternifoliais tree, which is found in Australia. Tea tree oil has bacteria-fighting substances known as Terpenes, and when you apply tea tree oil on pimples, it can kill the bacteria and improve the quality of your skin. You can also use face washes with tea tree oil. Aloe vera is also a natural cure for pimples and acne. This gel is rich in enzymes, and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. You can even eat this gel to cleanse your digestive tract. And a clean stomach helps keep the skin in good condition.

Zinc is also good for the skin – it strengthens the immune system and repairs damaged skin. You can take this in the form of capsules.

Another way to get rid of pimples is by drinking a lot of water through the day. You should drink at least eight glasses of water every day. Water keeps the skin hydrated and healthy, and flushes out toxins. You should include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet because these are packed with vitamin and minerals, and can do a world of good to your body and complexion.
