Get Rid of Pimples Fast And Easy

Get Rid of Pimples Fast and Easy

It’s everyone’s worst nightmare. Waking up the day before a  special event to discover a big, red pimple baring itself for all  to see right on your face! Here’s how to get rid of it quickly and safely:

1. Don’t ever pinch, squeeze or pick at a pimple. This only  causes it to become more red and inflamed, and will spread the bacteria and oils that caused it in the first place, to other parts of your face! It can also lead to scars.

2. Every 30 minutes, apply an ice pack to the pimple and hold it  there for about 2 minutes. This will decrease the swelling and redness and help shrink the inflammation and pain that sometimes comes along with it.

3. They don’t call it concealer for nothing! Covering the pimple  with a light dose of flesh-tinted concealer can help mask it when you’re in a hurry. It also helps cover up that oily shine.

4. Cleanse your skin 2-3 times a day with mild, unscented soap or a specialized acne cleanser that has no harsh chemicals (such as lye). Scrub skin gently with an exfoliating pad or washcloth, but  don’t rub too hard, otherwise you’ll sap your skin of its own natural oils, which help to repel buildup naturally.

5. Apply a cream or ointment containing benzyl peroxide or salicylic acid (many over-the-counter acne medicines contain these ingredients) to the blemish or around the entire facial area. Note that these ingredients both have a tendency to dry out skin if used too much and are not recommended if you have

sensitive skin.

6. Wear oil-free makeup whenever possible. These types have less of a tendency to cause the pore buildup that results in blemishes. Remove your makeup nightly and cleanse with an acne-fighting medicine to remove dirt, oil and makeup from deep within the skin.

7. If you’re in need of a quick fix, a dab of toothpaste on the affected area right before bed can help soothe irritation and reduce redness. Pressing and holding a wet tea bag or a cotton ball with a dab of lemon juice against the blemish for five minutes can also reduce swelling and redness.

If you follow these tips, chances are you’ll notice a significant difference rather quickly – often within a day or two. If pimples become a recurring problem or worsen, your doctor or dermatologist can suggest a daily skin cleansing routine that will suit your skin type. Other long-term remedies, such as facial masks, diet adjustments and increasing the amount of water you drink can also help combat outbreaks.

Acne is an almost unbearable skin problem. Not only is acne physically painful, but it can also wreck a persons self esteem. Find out how to get rid of pimples fast and easy now!


      Acne is a problem amongst people every where. No matter what your age, no one is safe from pimples! Here are a few tips for how to get rid of pimples fast and easy.

2.         Getting to the blemish before it starts. Once you notice the sore spot settling in, you should immediately take action! First cleanse the infected area with hydrogen peroxide. Next I recommend using a dab of tea tree oil of at least 15%. Tea tree oil is a well know antiseptic for the skin. Do this regimen 3 times a day, and keep area as clean as possible. You should also use a cloth with as warm of water as you can stand, cover face until cloth cools down. Do this several of times to help unclog pores. Finish with a cold cloth in the same manor to close pores.

3.         During this time you should stay away from sugar, milk, and fried foods. Wash your pillow case often, and avoid make up, or greasy creams. You should be able to get relief in about a week or so. This solution doesn’t work for every one, but many people have reported great results.

No one wants to get up and look in the mirror to see acne pimples staring them in the face. Come on, it is horrible. So what if you have a special function to attend, or a party to go to but you have pimples on your face? Don’t be scared; you will find ways to get rid of acne pimples nearly overnight and below you are going to discover a number of the tips.

Firstly, you’ll need to wash your face having a salicylic acid based cleanser to get rid of the excess dirt and oils from off your face. Be gentle when washing your face though,  because you don’t want to irritate the area and make it even worse. Pat dry having a towel , clean , of course after you’re via washing.

Next, get an ice pack and locate it on the pimples for about to minutes. Please take a one minute break and then place the ice pack on the pimple for another two minutes. Continue doing this for around 15 minutes.

After you have finished with the ice pack, you can then apply some gel like toothpaste onto the pimples. Just use a small amount and be cautious not to get any of the toothpaste into your eyes. Leave the toothpaste on overnight and rinse well with warm water and then cold in the morning.

You need to get rid of pimples, and fast! Try these quick fixes to help rapidly banish that breakout.

1. Spot-Treat It

Over-the-counter spot treatments deliver a generous amount of acne-fighting ingredients directly to the blemish. Choose one that contains benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Experiment to find which works best for you.

Some spot treatments are made to be left on overnight. Others are incorporated into a makeup concealer or are tinted to hide the blemish while it heals.

If you’d rather go the all-natural route, try dabbing on a drop of tea tree essential oil a few times a day. Some sources claim tea tree oil is as effective as 5% benzoyl peroxide.

You’ll be tempted to over-apply that spot treatment. Don’t! You’ll wind up with flaky, irritated skin you can’t disguise with makeup. Always follow the usage directions precisely.

2. Mask It

If spot treatments aren’t quite helping, you may have better luck with a sulfur mask. Sulfur helps unclog pores and reduce inflammation, and has been used as an acne treatment for many, many years. Today’s treatments don’t have the unpleasant scent of those from years past.

You can find inexpensive masks containing sulfur at your local drug store or more pricey products at posh department stores or salons. Some products can be left on a spot overnight for maximum effectiveness; others must be rinsed off after a few minutes. Make sure you follow the directions on your product, and never leave a mask on overnight unless it specifically says it’s OK to do so.

3. Ice It

Here’s a tip I learned from my favorite esthetician: apply an ice cube to inflamed blemishes. The cold temperature will help reduce redness and swelling, making the blemish look better. This is also a cool trick for those blemishes you can feel starting under the skin.

You never want the ice cube directly touching your skin, so first wrap it in tissue or a soft cloth, and don’t ice the pimple for too long (frostbite anyone?). Ice for 20 or 30 seconds, followed by a minute or so of rest, a few times per day or just before you go out.

Why cold and not heat? If you’re trying to hide a pimple, the worst thing you could do is steam it (or apply a hot compress) just before you go out. Heat can make the pimple look larger and more red.

4. Zap It

Make an emergency visit to your esthetician, and let her zap the blemish away with her high frequency machine. This machine uses a high frequency current to kill bacteria that cause inflamed blemishes.

Your esthetician will run a small electrode over the blemish. You won’t feel a thing, except maybe a slight tingle, and within a few hours the pimple will be noticeably smaller.

If you can’t get in to the salon or you just like the idea of having your own personal zit zapper, you may want to invest in a Zeno device. It works under the same principle, except it is hand-held and battery-operated. You can buy Zeno at some dermatologist offices, salons and even at some retail stores.

5. Inject It

For those incredibly deep, painful, cystic breakouts, your best option is to call your dermatologist for a cortisone injection. A dilute cortisone is injected into the blemish. After a day or so, swelling is reduced. As the breakout flattens out, it is more easily camouflaged with makeup.

These deep blemishes don’t respond well to other treatments, so if you really need that breakout to be gone quickly, a cortisone shot may be your best bet. Talk to your doctor.
