Although, acne cannot cause life threatening condition, but it can actually be depressing and upsetting. There are many products which help to cure pimples, but some may cause side effects, which can actually lead to a terrible situation. So, the best way to cure pimples is to go for natural cures.
Neem kills the bacteria, that cause acne, spots and pimples and reduces redness and inflammation. And neem oil works wonderful in reducing acne scars. Some of the ways in which neem can be used to treat pimples are as follows:
1. At first, wash the neem leaves and crush them. Then make a paste out of it and apply it onto the infected parts. Leave it for atleast an hour or so. This works wonderfully to dry up the pimples earlier.
