How To Get Rid Of Pimples


    Pop a Pimple


    Did you wake up with a throbbing pop-up on your face? Ugh! Is that a pimple? Have you been sulking over it? A big day for you tomorrow, an important event coming up or your first date, and you reckon how to get rid of it as soon as possible. Hold onto your horses and be patient no matter how tempted you are to pop it. Popping it may leave a scar that you may regret later. 

    It’s not that challenging either to get rid of pimples overnight; you may have to work for it, though. Usually, a pimple disappears in 4-5 days on its own if you don’t do anything about it. However, if you are particular about your looks, let’s explore some methods to expedite this process. Given underneath are some of the best remedies to bid goodbye to your pimply looks:

    Hydrocolloid Dressing

    Don’t go by the size of hydrocolloid dressing; it’s a small adhesive bandage but works wonders on your skin. You must have noticed people applying the same application on their blisters to reduce inflammation. What does it do to those angry blemishes? It simply leaves your skin moisture-free and calms the strain. It is incredibly effective in reducing a sore pimple overnight. The bandage sucks the pus and oil, so the inflammation on that spot goes down.

    Additionally, it raises the skin’s acidity level to prevent any further bacterial growth. While it may not vanish the pimple overnight, it will dry out the inflamed spot, leaving it smaller and smoother. There you go, now you can apply a concealer to the affected area. No one will notice a concealed bump on your face. 

    Tea Tree Oil

    Tea tree oil is one of the best ingredients for scar and pimple-free skin. It is an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory agent that neutralizes bacteria. It should ideally be used in small proportions or infused with other products. You can dab the same product on the affected area. Men can also apply tea tree oil after shaving for a soothing effect. It may not be the immediate solution, but it can certainly reduce redness and prevent scarring. 

    Spot Treatments

    Popping your pimple is not advisable, mainly when you can clean it out from the outside. That’s where spot medication works; they use active ingredients such as benzoyl, sulfur, or salicylic acid. Then suck the oil from the blocked pore and relieve inflammation during the process. Finally, you must smudge the product immediately onto the offending surface and let it heal.

    In addition to drying the pimple out, Benzoyl peroxide kills the bacteria breeding on the pores. Though your clothes, towels, pillow covers can get stained so it’s good to wear whites if you are using the product and may touch your face with other surfaces. 

    Salicylic Acid

    Salicylic acid assists in unclogging the pores by decomposing defunct skin cells. In a spot treatment, it pulls out the gunk from inside the pore as well. It is one of the best remedies for adult acne and getting rid of blackheads. It’s an instant solution for eliminating whiteheads as well without popping them. 


    Final Thoughts


    Use spot treatments like benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, salicylic acid, hydrocolloid dressing, and tea-tree oil on the affected area to get rid of acne and pimples in no time! These products are sure to reduce the look and feel of your pimple in no time
