Adios Nasty Pimple

Oct 24, 10 Adios Nasty Pimple

Adios Nasty PimpleEverybody hates a pimple. Nothing can ruin your day faster than a brand-new zit smack in the middle of your nose. Squeezing it is more tempting than a shirtless Oscar de la Hoya, but you know by now that it will only make it worse, so you have to resist. That doesn’t mean you have to walk around looking like a traffic light stuck on red, there are ways you can diminish the redness so it’s easier to cover up with makeup.

- Apply ice for about two minutes every half an hour. This will reduce both swelling and redness.

- Few drops of Visine constrict the vessels around that nasty pimple, helping get the red out like they do for your last-night’s-pachanga-went-over-time eyes.

- Mixture of water and crushed aspirin, or an aspirin mask also work.

- Cotton ball with a few drops of lemon juice can work wonders. Lemon juice is an astringent which can help the pimple dry up, and a natural whitener which can help reduce redness.

- Dab of toothpaste overnight can also help heal fast. However, this can be a bit abrasive so skip if you have sensitive skin.

Follow any of these with a pat of concealer and no one ever needs to know that you were Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for a day.
