Dear Avi,
I think you are much more aware about the foods which cause heat in our body. First and foremost thing for your pimples, just forget it. It will disappear within three to four days. Don't do anything on the pimple. It will create much more infection when you want to do something on it. But take some precautions such that it does not come again. The precautions are
  • Try to bath twice a day, because bathing will make our whole body cool.

  • Try to reduce the foods which you think will cause heat. Especially if you are eating more mangoes, then you will have more chances to get pimples. So eat it but limit yourself not to eat more.
    Also if you are having a habit of eating egg daily, then you should reduce the intake of eggs in summer.

  • Put oil on your head. This will not only cools your body, but also important for your hair and eyes.

  • Eat fenugreek in an empty stomach. This is the granny therapy. This will reduce our body temperature.

  • Drink more water. Water is much essential to reduce body temperature. It also helps for digestion.
