# 1.Ice the pimple to relieve some of the inflammation.
☛Cool temperatures slow local blood circulation, reducing swelling and redness in the injured tissue. Many athletes use cold treatments (ice baths, localized ice, etc.) in order to treat inflammation caused by injury.
# 2.Use eye drops.
☛Put a small amount of the eye drop solution on a Q-Tip and apply it gently to the pimple.
☛Alternately, freeze a Q-Tip that's been soaked in eye drop solution overnight. Apply it gently to the pimple. The cold will suppress the inflammation, and the tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride in the eye drops should help relieve redness.
☛Rubbing it on your entire face can cause more irritation. Only rub on affected areas. Don't use this technique too often or it could have an adverse effect.
# 3.Use an aspirin mask.
☛Mix together crushed aspirin with a little water to form a paste. Apply to the inflamed area gently with a Q-Tip and rinse off once dry. While not an immediate fix, this will help with redness.
# 4.Dab a little bit of toothpaste on the pimple.
☛Cover the pimple completely with a thin film of toothpaste right before bed, let dry, and leave on overnight. Wash off in the morning.
☛Don't use toothpaste that has menthol or fluoride. These ingredients may worsen redness and cause more pimples to appear.
# 5.Use a little bit of lemon juice.
☛Lemon juice will lighten your skin. It will take a long time and repeated uses for it to show, but it will lighten the pigments in your skin. If you only use lemon juice sparingly, however, and evenly over your face, it shouldn't be noticeable.
☛Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight after applying lemon juice. Because lemon juice tends to dry out skin, it's especially susceptible to sun damage. Apply lemon juice only at night, wash your face in the morning, and always wear noncomedogenic sunscreen.
☛Lemon juice may interfere with other acne medications. Like all home remedies, its effectiveness is not necessarily scientifically proven, and care should be taken using it. Talk with your doctor or dermatologist about combining lemon juice with other topical products.
# 6.Apply a hot washcloth or warm tea bag to the pimple.
☛Get water that is almost too hot to touch. On your face, it should feel a little uncomfortable at first, but pleasant after a while. Soak your washcloth in the hot water, or take your hot teabag, and hold gently over your acne for 30-60 seconds.
☛Follow your warm compress with a good old-fashioned face wash. Facial scrub or wash will help remove some of the oil and bacteria that was drawn out by the warm compress.
# 7.Go to a grocery store pharmacy for a redness-reducing product to put on your pimple.
# 8.Use concealer to hide the redness immediately.
☛Green colored concealers will take the redness out of your skin, a skin tone liquid make-up or powder then needs to be applied on top of it.
Part 2 of 2: General Practices to Keep Your Skin Pimple-Free
# 1.Wash your face daily with a quality face wash.
☛Don't scrub too hard or use a rough-surfaced implement like a loofah or washcloth to wash your face. Your hands will work just fine. When drying your face, gently pat dry with a towel (or air-dry). Don't wipe your face too vigorously with a towel.
☛If you've been using over-the-counter treatments and home remedies for two months and see no real improvement in your acne, go visit a dermatologist, or skin doctor.
# 2.Drink lots of water.
☛When dehydrated, we lose moisture in our skin. This means that there is less circulation to the skin area to provide essential nutrients. When your body is not properly hydrated, your skin is the first places on your body to feel the deficit.
☛Drinking more water will help your kidneys and liver detoxify more efficiently and more effectively. Drinking water will also make sure your colon is working as best it can.
# 3.Make sure your body is getting its proper vitamins.
☛Vitamin A. A lack of vitamin A in the body has been linked to inflammation in the intestines, lungs, and skin. Vitamin A is an antioxidant, meaning it helps limit damaging cells called free radicals that harm skin cells and hasten signs of aging. Foods that are rich in vitamin A: Liver (pâté), carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, squash, apricots, and cantaloupe.
☛Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 is water soluble, meaning you lose it as water in your body evaporates or is used. This means you should be restocking your body daily, preferably with foods rich in vitamin B6 instead of supplements. Foods that are rich in vitamin B6: Beef, turkey, nuts, seeds, legumes, and fish.
☛Vitamin C. Vitamin C is instrumental in producing collagen, the basic building block of skin, among other things. Vitamin C also protects against harmful substances that contribute to disease and is another antioxidant. Studies suggest that it has some anti-inflammatory benefits. Foods that are rich in vitamin C: Hot chili peppers, guava, members of the citrus family (lemons, oranges, grapefruit), kale, broccoli, kiwi, and strawberries.
