Urgent Remedy To Treat Pimples Before The D-Day: Ask IMBB

Ask IMBB Gang

I am a regular visitor to IMBB, just love all reviews. I am getting married on 6th November, 2011. My skin was super fine, but now, suddenly, I have started getting acne and pimples on my face. I am using Lotus Herbals tea tree face mask since about a week. I have a bit of oily T zone, rest of the face is normal to dry. Please suggest me something as soon as possible. I am really very worried as my marriage is just after 15 days.

Thanks in advance,

  1. Hi Parul….first of all….congrats for the big day O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) regarding your acne issue, I would suggest that you refrain from using new skin care products since only a few days are left for your marriage. Just use what has worked for you before. Since you have developed acne, I would suggest you try body shop’s tea tree range or Rosacnil gel if you can get that or try the tea tree oil from Oriflame, all of which help in clearing up acne quickly. Also, if you are NOT ALLERGIC to kasturi manjal, please try that too, but you should first do patch test before using any kind of product on your face…… O:) O:) O:) O:) O:) O:)

      1. Good joke maansi….I will laugh at it tomorrow…… :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars:

  2. Congratulations Parul! I would suggest you to visit a good Dermatologist asap..also refrain from using any new products on your skin and limit any experimenting also, Sebamed Clear Face cleansing foam has worked for me very well and it was prescribed by my derma to me so its safe also..you can try using this face wash, also use home made face packs like multani mitti+chandan powder+neem powder+orange peel powder mixed with rose water..works very well! Also drink lots of water and keep your stomach clean..most of our issues are because of stress and not keeping the stomach clean..hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I second this.
      Please Don’t use ANY new product, It’s not necessary that if a product worked for someone it would work the same for you.
      You should visit a Dermatologist right away

  3. Congratulations! Nov 6th …:)
    Stop using any thing new on ur face.Consult a dermatalogist immediately,i guess 4-8 days(depending on skin) everything wil clear up or you can use home remedy you already know is effective.This can also be result due amount pressure brides have to go through.Drink a lot of water and dont take tenshun..there many people at your place to take that ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. parul.. I can totally relate to ur dilemma as i had This same prob just 2 weeks b4 my wedding.. Firstly dnt get stressed.. Show a gud derma.. He wud suggest an acne face wash, an acne clearing gel.. Dnt try new herbal or chemical proDucts on ur face without any derma reco.. Use lacto calamine for normal to oily skin.. I swear by it cos it has helped me tremendously in controlling acne.. Try usin a pack of multani mitti, rose water, haldi.. U can also use Besan, dahi n haldi..
    Dnt worry at all.. Be happy .. Dnt get stressed.. U Wil look gorgeous cos its ur big day O:)

  5. Multani Mitti + Rose Water – Face Pack will reduce Acne, also it will not cause further damage too..
    Consult a derma ASAP..
    :waytogo: Congrats :))

  6. parul please dont use any kind of powder of foundation at the moment and go for cleansing facials regularly now
    and please make sure no instrument at the parlour touches ur face as u never know what bacteria it may be laden with(from personal experience)

    use this for 15 days without fail(tested since years by me )
    1 tsp raw milk/yogurt
    1 tsp besan
    1/2 tsp lemon(acidic so use less )
    15 mins and take it off

    i can guarantee ur complexion will be clear in 15 days ….it is magical for me

    also grated potato will brighten ur skin like magic

    these are harmless packs and tried and tested O:)

      1. :puchhi: arey jomu ji thot i must have posted it sometime here n there
        lemon really works so we can add more we are toh married bal bacho wale na :victory2:

  7. n yes …..u wont have a single spot on ur d day and even if it is …it will be like a nazar bachao kawach
    everything too perfect is not good na ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. U know I also had breakouts 2 years back n i didnt know the reason coz i have xtrmely dry skin .The skin specialist doc gave me antibiotics n dermadew lotion for moisturisation n lucidum lotion as facewash ,an acne clearing gel ,my skin became clearer.Visit the doc dont try anything by urself ,i had done that n it had nt helped ,now wen i get pimples i put a little amt of night cream on it n the pimple is barely there in the morning .I use ponds age miracle nyt cream bt u get urself treated by a specialist.Congrats !

  9. first of all congos Parul. I wud advice DO NOT use any cosmetic preparation, there’s no wonder oil which can magically treat acne ( personal experience) i have been suffering from acne since last 6-7 yrs ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Right now also, i am under medication, its been 15 days and my skin already shows an inprovement as in the acne has started to subside, just dont worry u have enough time in hand….consult a good derma, i am sure within 15 days it will be treated.

  10. for immediete releif i would recommend Oint . Pernex AC 2.5% (BENZOYL PEROXIDE GEL)/ any ointment containing CLINDAMYCIN…. i have used it earlier. and it helped.i had a problem of acne vulgaris few years back over shoulders and back. but regular use curbed it.

    hope this helps… consult a dermatologist asap.

  11. Go to a doc. If you’ve been drinking loads of tea/coffee, cut down on it. wash your face as much as you can and keep a towel aside just for your face and get it washed everyday. If you are feeling brave, try drinking half a glass of bitter gourd aka karele ka juice. It makes your skin clearer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Congrats Parul…!!! Here is a simple trick which should help u get rid of pimples in 10 days. Mix 1 spoon of honey with 1/4th spoon of dalchini powder. Apply it over the pimples at night before sleep. Wash it off the next morning. I use this whenever i have pimples and in abt a week, the pimples r gone. I apply this paste after cleaning and applying night cream to my face. Hope this helps and may u have a blissful married life!!!

  13. hi parul congrats! Evrybdy is right consult ur derma asap! I hv been using keracnyl facewash from ducray n Deriva cms oint from glenmark pharmaceuticals ,n my skin is xtremely oily! I hv been also using proactiv acne system since a year n my face is totaly acne free! :yahoo:

  14. I would say ,dont consult a derma ,he will give you stuff that would help with pimples but it will make your skin utterly dry . I feel your breakouts are mostly due to stress.
    Use multani mitti ,himalaya facepack and also Clindamycin phosphate gel as spot treatment . It dries up pimples overnight like magic ! :))

  15. I read JOMO and I read “getting married in november” and I was like: ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    BTW- Parul- Congrats on ur wedding ๐Ÿ˜€
    Apart from going to the dermat: Find a reliable parlour and get a few settings of the clean up using high frequency device: they use a device whick has a glass tube and they pass some electrolytic layers : a few settings and max of the acne will go… its my personal experience hence the suggestion… @Jomo this one is for you too ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. This is definately due to pre-wedding stress and please take your 8 hours of beauty sleep everyday, eat a balanced diet…(meaning your system is clear and functioning fine)…take more fibre based diet…..and no coffee….if you can so you will not get any constipation issues. Eat apple everyday and proper intake of liquids. This will take care of some of the sudden onset of pimples.

    Try to relax, either by listening to your fav music or taking an hour off from everybody and just to your self. Clean your face properly, and try not too use so many products that will make your skin dry….you def. do not want peeling or flaky skin either.

    Best of all enjoy with your family the most….your parents, siblings,friends and value all the time you spending with them. Laugh a little, joke a little with them. You will feel much better and it will show on your skin.

    If there is constant heat in your temples, in your cheeks, and you can feel your heartbeats even if there is AC around, it means you are under stress and no amount of outward treatments will work as much as trying to relax and taking one day at a time….smile…make priority lists and tick them off one by one…..

  17. Hi Parul,

    Congratulation for your Wedding ๐Ÿ™‚
    Drink loads of Water and don’t stress out. Avoid tea spicy, oily food for some time…have cucumber in deit.
    Apply Multani Mitti + Sandalwood and Rose Water as face pack.
    For instamt relief consult with dermatalogist – i use Persol Gel from Wallace, Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% my pimple go way in 2 days time.

    Good Luck!

  18. hey parul congo for the big day ..i hav same problem (acne n only acne) i hav oily to normal skin and i am using himalaya neem face pack which i thought is good u can also use 2 tsp lemon juice and 2 tsp rose water mix these 2 ingredients in a bottle and use this mixture 3-4 times in a day ..it will be very helpful ..


  19. Hey! Congrats 4 gettin married!

    Parul among other experiences you can also try homemade tulsi water for ur acne n pimples. It vl help u a lot.

    Wash and boil few tulsi leaves in a pan full of water till it remains half. Keep it aside to cool down. After cooling down, wash ur face wid dis green tulsi water. You vl see a difference.
    Also, try multani face pack as suggested above n u vl rock on ur marriage!!

    Wish u a vry happy married lyf….

  20. @neha… i tried ur face pack of besan+milk+lemon… it did wonders on my skin.. really felt the difference… i also added some honey to it for glow…

  21. Thanks Parul for asking this question ๐Ÿ™‚ even i was about to ask the same. Am getting married on 12th nov. My skin was clear since many months but suddenly 3 zits appeared within a week!!!!! :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:
    I was so freaked out ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™
    now am going to follow the above advice.
    Thanks everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Hey Congratulations for ur wedding ๐Ÿ™‚
    I have had the same problem for many years now. And Multani Mitti, Chandan and Gulabjal is the best face pack that you can use for skin. But make sure that u dont get those readymade powdered ones that u get in the market. U will get whole pieces of Multani mitti and chandan in an ayurvedic shop.

  23. Hey hi congrats….m in d same situation as u are but I ve sstarted using clindamycin phosphate gel its d best thing for acne on dis earth it dries up pimples very fast and m tellin u after trying all d home remedies and dis is suggested by my dermat so no worry but only thing apply a small amount on d pimple very small and just rub it so dat it penetrates don t apply excess it causes itching smtime if applied prprly it is of great help….alll d best
