6 Easy and Natural Pimple Treatments for Oily Skin

Pimple is the most common problem faced by oily-skinned beauties. Be it these red zits just popped around your nose or those blackish marks on your cheeks left by some old acne, each and everything makes you feel just ‘ugly’, right? Don’t worry. Here are 6 best treatments for you:

Pimple Treatments for Oily Skin

1. Orange Peel Paste


  • Orange peel powder – 3 tablespoons
  • Water – as required


Mix water with the orange peel powder and prepare a thick smooth paste. Apply it on your pimples and wash with cold water after 20 to 25 minutes. The vitamin C content of orange peels helps dry up pimples and regenerate fresh skin cells without making the skin greasy.

2. Cucumber Mask


  • Cucumber – 1 large


Peel and grate the cucumber nicely. Strain the juice so that it gets separated from the pulp. Put the pulp in the refrigerator for several hours. Once it turns chilled, take it out and apply the juice on the trouble spots of your face by dipping it into that again and again. Doing it twice weekly will cool down your internal system, open up the clogged skin pores and dry up the ugly pimples, thereby accelerating their removal.

3. Mint and Honey Mask


  • Fresh mint leaves – 12 to 15
  • Raw honey – 1 teaspoon


Crush the fresh mint leaves in a small bowl and pour pure raw honey into it. Now, put the mixture into a blender and blend to form a sticky paste.  Apply it all over your face as a mask. After half an hour, rinse off with lukewarm water. Honey and mint are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory respectively, which hasten the treatment of pimples and eliminate them completely.

4. Honey and Lemon Juice Mix


  • Raw honey – 2 teaspoons
  • Lemon juice – 2 teaspoons


Combine pure raw honey and fresh lemon juice properly. Apply the mixture on the affected areas of your skin with the help of a cotton ball. After 15 to 20 minutes, wash off with cold water. Both honey and lemon are good for oily skin. They not only limit the secretion of oil glands, but also destroy acne-causing bacteria. Hence, we get a pimple-free revitalized skin.

5. Fuller’s Earth, Lemon Juice and Rose Water Mask


  • Fuller’s Earth – 3 teaspoons
  • Lemon Juice – 1 teaspoon
  • Rose Water – 1 teaspoon


Pour the Fuller’s Earth in a small bowl. Add fresh lemon juice and rose water to it. Mix well. Spread the thick mixture all over your face uniformly. It will dry up by 20 to 25 minutes. Then, rinse off with cold water. Fuller’s Earth absorbs excess oil from the skin, while the acid content of lemon juice fights against the pimples and their scars. Conversely, rose water gives our skin a fresh glow.

6. Gram Flour, Yogurt, Lemon Juice and Turmeric Pack


  • Gram flour – 3 teaspoons
  • Yogurt – 2 teaspoons
  • Lemon Juice – 4 to 5 drops
  • Turmeric powder – (1/2) teaspoon


Put the gram flour in the plain yogurt and blend well. Add lemon juice and turmeric powder to it and form a thick paste. Apply the paste all over your face and wait for next 20 to 25 minutes. As soon as it becomes dry, rinse off with fresh cold water. Here, gram flour helps us get rid of pimples by regulating the secretion of oil from our skin. It also provides nourishment to the skin along with the yogurt.
