The Secret Pimple Remover

Updated on February 1, 2013

The secret that the skin care companies don't won't you to know!

Pimples. Zits. Acne. There are many names that these nasty little pus filled pores are called. A pimple happens when the pore gets clogged with dirt and oil. The infection that occurs can be ugly and down right painful. Some people have them worse than others. Believe it or not some of you might be genetically inclined to have them worse than some of your friends.For teenagers they always seem to crop up on picture day or prom night without fail.

My 12 year old Daughter has had acne for about 3 years now. I had a pretty good complexion when I was younger but her Dad didn't. No matter what we tried nothing worked.We went through hundred's of dollars trying everything on the market. Clean and Clear and Proactive worked the best but they always seemed to come back. Especially around her period. They never completely cleared all the way up.

One day my husband and I went to visit his Grandmother. She happened to comment on my daughter's pimple problem. She said she had them really bad when she was about 13 until her grandmother told her a secret. She told my daughter to wash her face with regular soap and water. It didn't matter what kind. After she washed her face to pat it dry and after it completely air dried to apply regular corn starch out of the cupboard on her face.

Corn Starch. So when we got home she wanted to try it. I was skeptical. i mean we had spent tons of money, how was a dollar box of cornstarch going to clear up pimples?

The different was noticeable by morning. I was in shock! It worked. In 3 days all of her zits were gone and her complexion was radiant.

She still gets one or two pimples around time for her period. One or two is a whole lot better than 50!

I have to recommend this to everyone. It really does work.

      I've read in the other website , it says

      Cornstarch

      As fabulous as cornstarch can be for the skin, it should be avoided by people with acne prone skins. Cornstarch feeds the little mites on our skin (yes, we all have skin mites) creating the perfect ground for bacteria to grow, causing more pimples and breakouts.

      I don't feel like doing it , because I'm scared. , I wanna get rid off all my pimples . I don't wanna have more pimps

      why do you keep on asking does it really works? why don't you read her blog. and once again you cant see the result if you don't even try it. it doesn't matter if you try and one more i think corn starch theres no bad effect in the skin. becouse it doesn't contain chemical subsatances

      It's true!! I got problems with pimples one month ago. It drove me crazy.. I tried most of products for acne, but it was zero!! I didn't help me at all and my acne got worse. One week ago, I searched all of things in my kitchen that possibly work for my face. I mixed mashed tomato, orange (sometimes lime or lemon), milk and cornstarch, then used it as mask. Unbelievable, I did it just 3 times, and today the pimples have gone!!!! When I touch my face, it's really smooth and nice. I have aloevera also. I apply its juice on my face every night before I sleep. I hope it helps everyone who have problem with pimples

      For those of you asking how to do it. Wash your face at night with any kind of soap and regular water. Do NOT skip this step. Blot your face dry with a clean towel. Do not rub it dry. Let your face completely air dry after you blot it. Apply DRY cornstarch to your face. Someone suggested using a makeup brush. That is an excellent idea. Make sure it is a new one because makeup brushes harbor bacteria. Sleep with it on. In the morning use regular water to rinse it off and once again blot it dry with a towel.

      not sure if it works, but cornstarch just absorbs oil. baby powder does the same but has that awful smell. it's probably best to apply it with a makeup brush, or a cotton ball or pad. just brush it on like blush.

      for those who don't know what cornstarch is, it's a thickening agent used in cooking. look in your kitchen for it.

      i've been using cornstarch as a dry shampoo. and it's been working wonders for my hair.
