3- Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil has been proven very effective in treating pimples and acne. It fights the bacteria causing skin problems, given its antibacterial properties. In addition, it has soothing properties which help reduce inflammation, swelling, and redness of pimples. It also dries out blackheads and whiteheads.

  • Soak a cotton swab in tea tree essential oil and dab it on the pimples or the affected area. Wash your face after fifteen to twenty minutes.
  • Another way is to add a few drops of tea tree essential oil in one tablespoon of aloe vera gel. Apply this solution on your pimples and acne. Leave it on for about twenty minutes and then rinse it off with clean water.
  • Note: Avoid using tea tree oil if you have a sensitive skin.
