Here are a half-dozen ways to zap those zits fast! To complete this How-To you will need: Aspirin A cotton swab Lemon juice Instant oatmeal Honey An egg Manuka honey Non-gel toothpaste Tea tree oil or witch hazel (optional) Eye drops for red eyes (optional) Hydrogen peroxide (optional) Dermatologist (optional) Step 1: Don’t squeeze it! Resist the urge to squeeze a pimple. You might push bacteria further into your skin, causing an infection that could lead to scarring. Tip: Keep tea tree oil or witch hazel in the house so that as soon as you feel a pimple starting to bloom, you can dab some on. Both have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that will help nip a zit in the bud. Step 2: Give it an aspirin Woke up with a full-blown blemish? Crush an aspirin, mix it with a few drops of water, soak the tip of a cotton swab in it, and hold the swab against the zit for about 15 seconds. It won’t make the pimple disappear, but it can reduce redness. Tip: Eye drops—the kind for bloodshot eyes—work too. Step 3: Slap a paste on it
