QI am 17 years old and I have many pimples on my face from the past two year years. How can I clear my face of pimples?

A Wash your face twice a day, morning and night with a medicated soap. Then wipe with an astringent lotion, using cotton wool. Astringent lotion will be available at a cosmetic store.
Mix a little rose water with sandalwood paste and apply on the face. Wash off after 15 minutes. Mix cinnamon (dalchini) powder with a little lemon juice and a few drops of honey into a sticky paste. Apply only on the pimples daily and leave it on for one or two hours.
Mix multani mitti with sandalwood paste, rose water and lemon juice into a paste and apply on the face two or three times a week. Wash it off when it dries. Avoid creams and moisturisers. Use only oil-free products.  Include fresh fruits, raw salads, sprouts and yogurt in your daily diet. Drink six to eight glasses of water daily. Add the juice of a lemon to a glass of water and drink it first thing in the morning.
