Pimple, Plight and People

There are only a handful blessed soul who do not undergo the wrath of pimples and acne during their puberty. For others it is painful face and loads of unnecessary advice by people around. How much ever you try to avoid the thought of those protrusions on your face in order to keep your hands away from breaking them but every soul around you will remind of it at the slightest excuse. 

To me it was the same. Like every teenager i too was a victim of acne and pimples. But pimples bothered me far less than the so called well wishers of my life. I have few experiences to share my journey of pimples and I am very sure many of you would connect with my encounters. After all we live in the same world.

Five Silly Tips I was offered

1. Apply saliva on pimples as soon as you get up in the morning. To me it did not make sense. How can some one without brushing his teeth even think of doing this task. 

2. After meals rub your unwashed hand on the face  so that the food can form a mask on the face. 
I did not dare to ask the logic behind it.

3.  Once I was passing by Cubbon Road in Bangalore with my friends. A stranger came up to me and asked my friends to stand at a distance because he wanted to talk to me in private. He told me he has a homemade medicine to cure pimples in one week. I was wondering why was he doing it so secretly when he can make  millions by his magical medicine ?  He also urged me to pat my face with my own used underwear soaked in lukewarm water. I laughed right on his face in frustration and left the place.

4. Don't apply face wash or soap on face. Wash your face with plain water only. This advice came from a Banker Uncle. I could be a potential hazard for running a bacterial habitat.

5. If you have pimples then you are in affair with a girl. This was told to me by a shopkeeper where I bought my stationery from. You will get rid of  it only if you break up with her. To my surprise boys with girlfriends fared much better when it came to pimples.  

My own Tips that helped me.

1. Keep your hands away from pimples. Pricking is a complete No No.
2. Drink plenty of water. It removes toxins and free radicals.
3. Avoid eating oily and spicy food.
4. Use a clean and dry towel to wipe face.

5. It is believed that application of Soap on face makes the situation worse. So during my teenage I used Garnier Gentle Facewash. It is soap free and pH balanced. It had very positive results on my pimples. I believe the new specialized version for pimples  Garnier Pure Active Neem face wash will be more promising and effective in this regard.
