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.

Kids Know it All

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work.

As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was..

The girl replied, "I'm drawing God."

The teacher paused and said, "But no one knows what God looks like."

Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl: replied, "They will in a minute." continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today
Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Today you might be feeling particularly warm and loving toward a romantic partner, and the feeling is likely reciprocated. You could have trouble reaching each other to make arrangements to meet. Phone messages may not be received, or perhaps the person has something important to do. Eventually the two of you will speak, even if you aren’t able to do what you want before tomorrow.

A temporary separation from someone close to you could have you reflecting on the good times you’ve spent together, especially over the past few weeks. You’re likely to talk with him or her on the phone. You’re feeling a lot of warmth and affection toward everyone around you, but a little sad as well, particularly when you think of those far away. Call them up! They’ll be glad to hear from you.

The energy today encourages you to get your house in order. Serious cleaning and sorting will free you up to have fun. Simplicity is the word of the day. Make lists to stay organized and do your best to finish what you start. Children and pets may need special attention.

Examine your emotions and trust your instincts. Unexpected forces may try to disrupt the flow of things. Keep in mind that you should have no problem keeping the situation under control as long as you stay solid and focused. The actions you take today will have long-lasting effects, so be conscious of how you use your energy. Incorporate the old as well as the new in your game plan.

This is likely to be a busy time. Do as much as possible early in the day. Your gentle charm makes you a great favorite with family and friends. Stick with difficult or precise tasks. To feel your best, be sure your diet limits sugar and includes greens.

If you are a parent, then pay extra attention to your child today. He may want to say something and might require a little encouragement from you before opening up. Or he may simply require a hug or a pat on the shoulder. Either ways, simply spend some extra quality time with your child today.

Although you’ve been feeling especially strong physically over the past few days, today you might feel a little under the weather. You could even experience some giddiness. This is nothing to worry about, but you should try to take it easy. Don’t exercise if you don’t feel up to it. Get some rest. Even if you have to postpone some chores, you’ll be better off in the long run.

You may not want to openly admit something to someone today, even though you know it’s true. You’re more than likely working to hide behind a barrier that has formed between you and a close loved one or family member. If you insist on behaving this way, you may want to consider why you even bother staying in the relationship in the first place.

The forces at work today mix the need to expand with energy that limits and controls. This could mean that a person or situation challenges you by attempting to exert control in a way you find objectionable. Be ready to speak your mind and refuse to be dominated.
