If you are one of those teenagers who suffer from acne, pimples or blemishes, then this article is for you. Blemishes not only come in the way of having a beautiful face, but they also lead to low self-esteem in teenagers. A friendly, smart and intelligent teenager can end up feeling embarrassed and low in self-confidence due to the very visible acne and blemishes on the face. Although there are many over-the-counter anti-blemish creams and lotions available in the market, they often rob the facial skin of its natural glow. Natural remedies, on the other hand, can help remove these blemishes and yet maintain the facial glow.
So what are these natural remedies that can help in getting rid of the pimples and blemishes on your face and other parts of the body? Here are 4 effective natural remedies that can help take care of these skin problems:

Take 1-2 teaspoon of sandalwood powder in a bowl. Add some rose water to make a paste. You can also add a pinch of turmeric. Apply on the face and leave it on till dry or for 15 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water.
* Egg white, honey and plain yogurt - If you can stand the smell of egg white, this is another very effective natural remedy for acne and pimples. Just take a teaspoon of all these three ingredients and mix them thoroughly. Apply them on the face and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water and apply rose water on your face.
* Oatmeal scrub - Blackheads on the T-zone of the face (forehead, nose and chin) can be really tough to cure. A natural remedy to get rid of stubborn blackheads is finely ground oat meal. Add a little bit of water to finely ground oat meal and use it to scrub your face. Scrub your face for 5 minutes. Pay more attention to your forehead, nose and chin. Leave it on for 5 minutes.
