9 Pretty Simple Pimple Home Remedies

9 Pretty Simple Pimple Home Remedies
A few weeks ago when I was digging around for a post to “revive” from way in the depths of Crunchy Betty, my first thought was a very, very old post titled 27 Quick and Crunchy Home Remedies for Pimples. It’s a great post, full of fun little ideas for when you have a giant monster on your face and want to treat it quickly. I even used several of the ideas in the Simple Pimple Remedies section of Food on Your Face for Acne and Oily Skin. There’s just one problem with it. The picture I used to accompany that post is horrendous. Terrible. So it was kind of like a creepy clown that’s been baked in the oven at 125 degrees for about 3 minutes. I will not post that picture here, because by gosh and all, I don’t want it haunting me for the rest of my blogforsaken life. So, when I realized I couldn’t “revive” that post as is, I thought, “I’ll take a few new pictures for it.” So here you go. Also, let it be known that these are not ranked by my personal favorites. Kinda magic. Ah. Tomatoes.

The moist conditions produced under the dressing are intended to promote fibrinolysis, angiogenesis and wound healing, without causing softening and breaking down of tissue. The gel which is formed as a result of the absorption of wound exudate is not mobile and free running but held within the structure of the adhesive matrix. Most hydrocolloid dressings are waterproof, allowing normal washing and bathing.[2] Dressings may be used, under medical supervision, even where aerobic infection is present; the infection should be treated appropriately. The dressing is applied to a cleaned wound.
