The reason behind a pimple can be many like stress, use of wrong cosmetic products, bacteria, hormones, oily skin type and other factors. It is important not to pick, pop, squeeze and scratch the pimple as it can aggravate the skin leading to infection.

As hands are always on display, the way your fingernails are talks highly about your general health state but also reflect your healthy habits.

Nails that are yellow in color can reflect an underlying medical problem, some kind of nail fungus and your habit of excessive smoking. You can cover your nails with a dark color nail polish but this is not a good solution but consistent wearing of nail polish deprive your nails of the oxygen they need to maintain a natural color. This will result in a permanent yellow tinge on your nails.

If the reason behind yellow nails is regular use of nail polish, you must scrub your nails with a mixture of whitening toothpaste and lemon juice. Always use a soft nail brush for scrubbing to get rid of the yellow color. Another solution is to bleach your nails in a solution of one tablespoon hydrogen peroxide mixed with two and a half tablespoons of baking soda in a small plastic bowl.
