Creams for Pimples, Acne

So you’ve somehow gotten rid of the ugly, depressing pimple on your face. But you’re still in a world of woe because of the awful mark it has left behind for the entire world to see! I know, it is the one thing that can ruin a perfectly good day.

Thankfully there is hope as makers of personal care products have woken up to the fact that pimple marks can be a real drag for us women.

There are many choices available today, both medicinal and herbal. I prefer to go the natural way as far as possible. Here’s a lowdown on my top five anti-marks creams to get rid of these horrid and blemishes:

Shahnaz Hussain Shaclear Skin Clear Anti Pimple Lotion

The name’s been around for ages and users of the Shahnaz Husain brand swear by its effectiveness. The Shaclear lotion too has many takers. It is made using herbal essences of rose, margosa, ashwagandha and turmeric. The neem extracts used in its creation is known for its anti bacterial and blemish fighting properties.

It controls inflammation of the skin, prevents acne and fades away marks and blemishes, while keeping skin soft and supple. The instructions for use on the pack suggest using cotton swabs to apply but I find an ear bud does a better job.

This lotion, however, is not a quick fix and results will be seen only after regular use. A drawback I feel is that it is a tad overpriced at Rs.500 for a 100ml bottle.

Biotique Wintergreen Oil Of Winter Green Cream

One of my all-time favourite personal care brands, Biotique, brings yet another offering for those stricken with acne.

The Winter Green cream contains extracts of the winter green herb known to have a soothing, cooling effect on skin inflammations. It also contains neem oil along with extracts of Bearberry and Euphorbia. It is known to be an effective solution to fighting pimples and keeps the skin with a healthy glow.

Although a bit expensive at Rs. 199 for 16 gms, I think this one is definitely worth the money as just a tiny amount is to be used any time a stubborn pimple mark appears.

Himalaya Clarina Anti-Acne Cream

Himalaya’s products always get mixed reviews and this one’s no different. I haven’t used this one personally but I’ve seen it work on others.

Clarina contains extracts of aloe, almond and Indian Madder that together provide an antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing solution. It also acts as an antioxidant, astringent, and emollient with soothing effects on the skin.

It is to be applied twice daily on marks and lesions till they fade away. It is fairly cheap at Rs. 50 for a 30 gm tube.

Fabindia Vitamin E De-Pigmentation Cream

Fabindia personal care brings this skin lightening cream with a variety of ingredients such as Propylene Glycol, Vitamin E, Acetate, Gum Xanthan, Methyl Paraben, Allantoin and Propyl Paraben.

It claims to be an intensive skin lightener providing natural de-pigmentation treatment that helps even skin tone and control the production of melanin. It helps remove age spots, freckles and blemishes and is free from harmful bleaches and Hydroquinone. You can get it at all Fabindia outlets at Rs. 300 for a 100 ml jar.

Lotus Herbals Papayablem Papaya-N-Saffron Anti Blemish Cream

This cream contains all things natural with the essence of papaya, saffron and apricot, along with clove oil, lemon peel extracts and wheatgerm oil that work towards lightening your skin and nourishing it from within. This thick yet non-greasy cream is skin friendly and maintains the pH balance of the skin, bringing out a natural glow.

It can be used once or twice a day, and I’ve seen it works well by dampening the skin a bit before use. I prefer to use it at night so it can work its magic by the next morning. It is priced at Rs.295 for a 50 gm pack.

This list is of course, isn’t exhaustive and there are many more options available. These, however, are some of the best ones and are worth a shot. If your marks aren’t budging though, it may be a good idea to see a dermatologist for a quicker, more permanent solution.

Karva Chauth Rules

Once Chitragupt went angrily to Brahmaji and said, “You really need to stop this whole ‘karva chauth’ thing.
All these women want the same husband for seven lives.
It is getting very difficult to keep track!”

Overhearing his predicament, Narad Muni suggested, “Let’s introduce an amendment.
Any woman who wishes for the same husband for all seven lives, will also get the same mother-in-law for seven lives!”

Needless to say, that year Chitragupt’s workload decreased drastically! continue reading...

Thought for the day!

Worry gives small things a big shadow. In the end, you can either focus on what’s tearing you apart, or what’s holding you together.

Overindulgence the previous night may leave you feeling a little out of sorts. It’s advisable to spend the day in bed and get some much needed rest. Don’t force yourself to socialize, either. You need some time alone to recover and gather your resources so you can face the world with a clear head.

Someone who lives far away, someone you haven’t heard from for a long time, could give you a surprise phone call today. You’ll be delighted and probably stay on the phone too long. You might need to run a few errands, but the weather could keep you indoors. Don’t worry about it. You’ll still have time to take care of other pressing matters.
