They are just about everywhere—these unsightly, attention-getting, good-for-nothing pimples. And they tend to blossom too during the teenage years when a horrendous amount of hormones activates them. There goes the chance of true love for the love-stricken Romeo, whose declaration of love was rejected by the disdainful Juliet. All because she saw a dreadful sight all over his face: big, oozy, pus-filled pimples.
So what’s Romeo got to do? He got to get rid of them fast.
Listed below, Romeo found these things inside their kitchen:
- Garlic—cut the garlic and rub it over a pimple. Leave on for 5 minutes before washing the face. Eating garlic too, can purify the blood.
- White toothpaste—though in Romeo’s time toothpaste might not have existed, this is a proven remedy for pimples. Leave it on overnight.
- Tea tree oil—a cotton ball dipped in the oil should do the trick.
- Fresh lemon juice—it has vitamin C which can help pimples dry up fast.
- Ice—unfortunately, this did not exist during Romeo’s time. Anyway, ice can reduce swelling and inflammation caused by pimples.
- Baking soda—combined with water to form into a paste, apply it on the face and wash it off with warm water.
- Honey—has natural antibiotics that will dry up pimples.
- Cucumber—soak cucumber in water which will then be used to wash the face.
After using the above ingredients, Romeo’s face actually did clear up. And now Juliet is asking, “Romeo, where art thou, Romeo?”
