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.

Need a holiday....

Once a mother-in-law sent a letter to his soldier son-in-law.
It read: You are simply enjoying at the border while my poor daughter is all alone at home.
Can't you take a few days holiday and come home?

A few days later she received a letter from her son-in-law along with a hand-grenade.

It read: My dear mother-in-law. If you are so worried, please pull the pin off the grenade.
This will ensure me at least a three-day holiday! continue reading...

The special person in your life could be working too hard, causing strain for him or her and frustration for you. Their extra hours at work could interfere with your desire to enjoy quality time together. Your own worries could put a damper on your self-confidence. You might be wondering if you’re doing everything that needs to be done. It might help to make a list and cross off each task you complete.

You may appear to have your head in the clouds today. The truth is, you’ve got a lot of important things on your mind. Others might be offended or even amused at your distance. Try not to worry about this too much. You need to take care of resolving those problems you’ve been ruminating on before worrying about everyone else’s reaction.

You’ve got a lot on your mind right now and others might be interpreting your quiet behavior as your being aloof. Go right ahead and let them think whatever they want. You’ve got some real issues to think through, and decisions with important consequences to come up with. You’ll be able to smooth their ruffled feathers later. Right now, just focus on taking care of yourself.

Plans for getting together with a group of close friends may have to be called off because of sudden unexpected events. This could have you feeling somewhat down, especially if a romantic partner is involved. Try not to worry about it too much. You will be able to reschedule, and you could use the time alone anyway to relax and center yourself.

Today you could be faced with a bunch of people from out of town that you’ve never met before. You’re likely to find this exciting and stimulating, but you could also feel a bit flustered. You might also not be at your most outgoing right now. This could be a better day to listen than to try to talk. Sometimes that impresses people more than anything you might say.

Visitors could come to your home tonight possibly for an informal get-together of some kind. Dear friends might be involved in some way. You’re likely to be very busy during the day, perhaps tying up loose ends. Your mind is probably going a thousand miles an hour, so you’ll need to wind down before going to bed tonight. You don’t want to lose any sleep.

Let your emotions play with your imagination today, and feel free to discuss your findings openly with others. Don’t get caught up in so rational a frame of mind that you refuse to acknowledge any other way of viewing a current situation. Put away your analytical side in order to disclose a more abstract, intuitive perspective. Exercise that part of your brain that doesn’t normally get used.

You might feel that money is flowing out of your bank account all too quickly lately, and this might be a cause of worry for you. You could feel you’ve spent too much on decorations for your home or on entertaining family and friends. Don’t worry! You’ll make up for it, and besides, you can’t take it with you, you know. Watch your spending, but don’t turn into a miser.
