Answer:Â Â Bacterial infection in the overactive oil glands situated at the base of the skin generally leads to the formation of pimples. Hereditary factors may also be held responsible for pimples and acne in some cases. Medicines containing lithium, iodides, bromides, steroids etc have also been associated with the worsening of pimples. Repeatedly washing pimple affected area may also aggravate the problem as skin tends to produce more oil in response to repeated washing and harsh scrubbing. Honey is considered good for skin. Applying a mixture prepared from three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder over night is a popular natural cure for this irritating problem. This natural remedy is sure to give encouraging results if religiously followed for at least two weeks.
