It’s almost that day that you’ve been waiting for a while now and you wake up the morning before excited about it, only to find out that you’ve got a visitor. That’s right, its the trusty pimple that never forgets to show up on any special occasion in your life!
But fret not, your day is not going to be ruined! There are a few home remedies that you can try to get rid of this pesky visitor overnight. Here are 6 of them:
1. Ice It Good
In many ways a pimple is an inflammation of the skin. One of the best ways to reduce inflammation (swelling) is by icing it, so why not try icing the pimple too! You’ll need to wrap an ice cube in a piece of cloth and hold it on the pimple for a few seconds. Repeat, leaving a few minutes in between. Th ice increases blood flow, reduces redness and cleans the pore of dirt and oil.
2. Don’t Skimp on the Face Wash
Sounds pretty simple, but don’t skimp on the face wash! Pimples and acne are caused by dirt and oil that accumulate on our faces throughout the day. When these pollutants clog our pores, the skin gets inflamed and out pops a pimple. That’s why its important to wash your face often. Water is good and all, but a good face wash will do a much better job of getting all the grease out. Think of it like washing a dish with just water vs water and soap; we all know which does the better job!
