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.

Why does the needle of a magnetic compass always point North?

- Because Rajnikant lives in the south & nobody dares to point at him!

Galileo used ‘lamp’ to study, Graham Bell used ‘candle’ to study, Shakshpeare studied in ‘street lights’ but, do you know about Rajnikant?

One day Rajnikant went for a morning walk & in the afternoon police arrested him. WHY?

Your Fortune For Today

Your mind is buzzing like a bee. You’re apt to find that there’s very little you can do to slow it down. Make sure you add compassion to the chain that’s holding everything together. Also make sure that you don’t become a victim of your thoughts by losing control over how you act simply because the voice in your head has completely taken over.

You might find yourself sidestepping in order to avoid a commitment today. Don’t keep giving someone the runaround. Be strong and let people know your thoughts even if you think their feelings will be hurt. Your job is to protect your emotions. Other people can handle their own. Be aggressive if you have to be. Your own sanity depends on you being true to yourself.

What can you do to create your own personal sense of security? Spending money on creature comforts or upgrading your wardrobe isn’t the solution. Careful financial plans and not impulsive desires should drive your choices. Simple, inexpensive, creative touches can make your world more beautiful.

You may not feel like you’re exactly clicking with anything today. Adjustments will need to be made either by you or the people you’re dealing with for any resolution to come about. Your emotions may feel tied to the ground, yet your mind may want to take off into the stratosphere. Dilemmas between whether to take action or stay passive could leave you paralyzed. Just go with the flow.

Today you might find yourself more inclined than usual to actively explore your interests in the arts. You might want to stroll through an art gallery or attend a concert or play. Your interest could be in the motivations of the artists as much as the works themselves. Don’t be surprised if you’re especially drawn to the more tormented great artists like Beethoven or Van Gogh.

A friend or romantic partner might need your advice and want to discuss a few things that you don’t really understand. This could concern this person’s job, which involves a lot of technicalities with which you’re unfamiliar. Don’t be afraid to stop occasionally and ask for an explanation. If you’re going to be of any help, you have to have some idea of what this person is talking about.

You’re naturally lovable, sensual, and admired. The energy today encourages sharing your ideas and opinions. Even if deep down you’re less sure, talk things out with people you respect. Many people’s worst fears and worries have no basis in fact. Avoid others’ negativity.

The energy today could bring highly charged feelings to the surface. More than usual, you can be hurt by the words and actions of others. No one may guess, because you prefer not to show negative reactions. Stay calm and simply do the best you can with ordinary things.

Romance intensifies as communication is enhanced by the energy, enthusiasm, and focus of you and your partner. If you aren’t already involved, you might meet someone new and exciting who shares your interests, and perhaps doesn’t live all that far away. Expect to make a lot of short trips in your neighbourhood, perhaps visiting friends or neighbours. If you’ve been thinking of moving, you might do a little house hunting.
