How to get rid of pimples

I have scars of pimples on my face and I have been using whitening cream. I feel it may harm my skin. Please suggest remedies.


Use a facial scrub twice a week. You can buy a scrub, or mix rice powder with curd and use as a scrub once or twice a week. Apply it on the face and rub gently on the face with tiny circular movements, especially on the dark spots and scars. Leave on for a few minutes and then wash off with water. Do not apply the scrub on pimples, acne or rash. Mix honey and lemon juice in equal quantities and apply daily on the face. Wash off after 15 minutes with plain water. Mix three teaspoons of oats with a teaspoon of honey, curd and lemon juice, or egg white. Apply on the entire face, avoiding the lips and area around eyes. Wash it off after half an hour.
