I'm 23 and I still get severe pimples. Is there a natural way to treat my skin to avoid this mess? I want to avoid medications and salves/creams.

In brief: Acne

Natural treatments don't have much value, although there are many folks who'd like you to believe in their salves, creams, lotions, and potions.
Unfortunately, your desire to avoid medications and other creams and salves kinds of limits options. Practice good skin hygiene, don't overdo cleansing or washing, and maybe reconsider your "natural" choices.
