The face wash contains Vitamin C derived from Kakadu Plum extracts that help slow the aging process. The anti-inflammatory properties of vitamin C can help you reduce redness and swelling caused by pimples. Vitamin C also helps in boosting the collagen production of your skin. It makes your skin firmer and helps prevent signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles.

Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce skin irritation, redness of the skin, and swelling. It can effectively treat acne and oily skin. Polyphenols in green tea can cause the breakdown of bacteria forming on your skin to give you healthier skin. It also contains Vitamin E, which has moisturizing properties and keeps your skin smooth and hydrated.  

However, if you are dealing with pimples that have already occurred, here are a few handy tips to remove them. 


Tips for Removing Pimples

  1. Apply Ice to the Pimples

Applying ice is the first step in soothing a raging, uncomfortable pimple. Place some ice wrapped in a cloth against the inflamed area for 3-4 minutes at a time. Throw a few cubes in a plastic sandwich bag before wrapping them in cloth if the ice melts too soon. Repeat a few times all day long to calm the skin and lessen swelling.

Choose a Face Mask that Helps with Acne Prone Skin

Choose a face mask that is designed to treat acne. Once more, you'll find ingredients like salicylic acid, which work to clear out clogged pores and reduce inflammation to treat acne directly. Additionally, products with green tea and Vitamin C can also help with acne-prone skin. 

  1. Avoid Tampering with Existing Pimples

Tampering with existing pimples can be very problematic especially when it comes to natural healing. When you touch an acne breakout, it tends to irritate the pimple. This may lead to an escalation in its condition resulting in red, irritable, and enlarged acne breakouts. Using products that contain salicylic acid and other healing ingredients is the key to resolving your acne issues. 

  1. Avoid Repetitive Touching

Touching your face repetitively transfers dirt from your fingers to your facial skin. Dirt which may not be a big deal to the skin on your body can also be harmful to your face. Since facial skin is more sensitive than the skin on the rest of our bodies, it’s recommended that you take extra care. Additionally, try to keep your hair out of your face. Our hair often accumulates dirt particles that are harmful to our facial skin. 


Other important terms to look for when selecting a face mask for acne include "exfoliating" and "anti-inflammatory." You can also pick products that are "calming," "hydrating," "soothing," "detoxing," and have "antioxidant" or "antibacterial" effects based on the type of skin you have. Different formulas in each face mask work to counteract the drying effects of the chemicals used to treat acne and soothe the skin. Many people utilize herbal remedies like green tea or tea tree oil, which both have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.


In short, we understand how upsetting pimples can be. Fortunately, the short-term solutions we've discussed here can help us cope. However, give your skin appropriate care. Choose the best organic products available at Ikkai. Treat your skin to ample nourishing vitamins and organic ingredients and you’ll see the glow in just a few weeks.
