  3. While that happens, place a towel on top of your head, so as to not allow the steamy lemon vapors to rush out.
  4. While the steam hits the nose, the nose gets moistened and softened (the pimple on the skin).
  5. Gently with a cotton piece dab the area and pop the pus and pimple out.
  6. Do this once a day, thrice a week for matured and pus filled pimples.

How it works:

The acidic nature of lime helps neutralize and balance the pH levels of the skin, and also nourishes the skin and dries away excess oil on the skin too. This helps with the drying up of the pimple as well, and that’s why we say, do it thrice a day.

4. Garlic

The use of garlic as a medicinal and an antibacterial agent for most DIY treatments isn’t a mystery these days, and for many centuries that too. So let’s take a look together on how to use garlic pods to remove the pesky pimples on the nose.

  4. Wash off with cold water.

How it works:

With the use of garlic pods rubbed over the infected area, the antibacterial and antimicrobial properties come into play. This allows for cell reinforcement and regeneration, along with proper circulation of blood too. And in the worst case scenario, if there is a break out, the infection would be curbed as well. This is because of the sulphur content in it which stops the breaking and infection of pimples.
