Read on for FAST TIPS on Getting Rid Of Pimples, the EASY WAY!
These tips may only give short-term respite from pesky pimples, but they have proven to work for quite a number of people, so these may very well work for you, too!
1. I see small, emerging bumps on my skin. What should I do to prevent them from completely popping out?
Angry, small bumps on the skin have the biggest potential to become pimples.Once you see these small bumps,get a small packet of ice and try to hold it against that particular area of your skin. Ice Treatment has been proven to have anti-inflammatory effects, and will help soothe your skin.
*Remember not to overdo it though, and keep in mind to clean the area first before applying ice!
2. A huge pimple has emerged on my face. What should I apply to zap it out?
There are a lot of Spot-on Treatments that promise to immediately clear out your skin of pimples and some even manage to eliminate your pimples overnight. Most are from popular cosmetic brands, and are available over the counter on your local drugstores.
One of these is tea tree oil, carried by most brands such as Body Shop and are available in Target, Drugstore.com and other big stores.
Neutrogena, Clean and Clear and Mario Badescu also carry spot-on treatments which claim to zap pimples overnight.
If you are not keen on using drugstore products, and you want to take the organic and natural herbal acne cures, there are some alternatives available to you.
One is to quickly dab lemon juice on the pimple. Scientific research shows that lemons have anti-drying properties and have been found to help tighten pores.
However, topically applying lemon juice may sting, so depending on your tolerance to burning sensations, you may want to consider diluting it with water.
*Also, do not leave it on your skin for long, because lemon juice penetrates the skin and may cause over drying.*
Meanwhile, Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) is known as a lifesaver in terms of getting rid of the red marks brought about by pimples.
Mix a little of the baking soda with water until you come up with a paste and apply it directly on the pimple. The baking soda works wonders in drying off the area. Make sure to moisturize afterwards though!
If you are occasionally plagued by pimples, you may want to check if the products you use in cleaning, toning and moisturizing your skin contain harsh ingredients that you are allergic to.
Sometimes, pimples crop up because your pores are clogged, and instead of clearing out your pores, the products you use contribute to the build-up.
Instead, consider using gentle cleansers, and always exfoliate twice a week. Do not over-exfoliate, as this strips your skin of its natural oils. It would also be wise if you do a patch test, a quick skin test to see if you are allergic to any of your current product’s components.
Always remember that having pimples may be your body’s way of telling you what it needs. The simple and quick solutions mentioned above may give you short-term relief, but these do not assure that you will forever be pimple-free. Thus, you may want to explore options and tips to keep the pimples at bay—permanently.
