    Hi, thats a brilliant article.. Can you please help me as well.. until few months ago my skin was crystal clear… but suddenly now past two three months im gettin a lot of pimples.. suddenly those blackhead kinds.. wat do i do? i regularly get my clean up done coz i have oily skin.. but do you have any idea why does this happen.. what are the ways to get those black head kinds pimples clear?

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/zinniamukherjee/ Zinnia

      Firstly you should scrub with the mildest of scrubs, 4 times a week, once a day.market available or the nutmeg powder is also good. Now coming to black heads, you can get a black head remover and get rid of the black heads, but if they have taken the form of pimples then try to use some anti-pimple medicine containing benzol peroxide. You need to get rid of the pimples first no matter which kind they are. For you condition a natural scrub is best, followed by medical consultation. Thats what seems fair enough to me . Hope this helps. Thank you for your lovely comment :)

    Nice article.. all ingredients are good.. but im not sure abot clove.. cloves have lot of heat.. how can they cure pimples? instead the heat might aggregate it further.. one possibility i see is that may be its burning sensation might kill the bacteria. not sure though.

    • Zinnia

      very little amount of clove.. can heal the pimples.. very little indeed..

      You should consult a dermatologist, if you have any significant problem.

      Note: Diet plays an important role. The healthier food you consume, the better your skin will look. Eat food that contains lot of vitamin C, vitamin E and drink six to eight glasses of water a day.
