i have lots of whiteheads marks on my face,especially on the nose and also i have pimple scars on my cheeks.please suggest home remedies to make my face clear and soft.

Whiteheads and pimples are both essentially symptoms of acne, and are the result of skin pores being blocked. This blockage leads to a build up of sebum, which is what whiteheads are - blocked pores that are full of sebum. Pimples usually form when bacteria start to multiply in the blocked accumulation of sebum. Pimples and whiteheads do not usually leave lasting marks unless you forcefully burst them by squeezing or plucking. You should therefore avoid doing this. In addition, you should keep your face clean. Although the pore blockages are not the result of dirt but of dead skin, keeping the area clean can prevent bacterial infection and speed up the healing process.

In addition, there are several natural face packs that you can use. Lemon juice, honey, sandalwood powder, turmeric, rose water, cucumber and potato are some of the ingredients that you need. You can make a variety of home made face packs using different combinations of these. Among the most effective are applying potato slices and a paste of honey, lemon juice, and turmeric powder. Note that these will be more effective in preventing scars and handling new pimples. Existing acne scars are difficult to get rid of, and may only disappear with time.
