Get rid of pimples with any of these products/remedies

Aside from looking for ways to conceal a pimple scab without makeup, it's always more counter-productive to treat pimples rather than just hiding them.

Here are some tried and tested methods in treating those nasty zits.

1. Use creams and ointments

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests using salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and sulfur-containing over-the-counter creams and ointments.

2. Using a warm compress

A warm compress can soften the area, allowing the pus to rise to the surface more easily.

3. Apply ice packs if necessary.

Using an ice pack to relieve pain and inflammation is a smart way to do so. For nodules, cysts, and hard pimples, ice is particularly powerful.

4. Using cleansers to wash your face.

Tea tree, salicylic acid, and witch hazel-based cleansers are the most powerful when it comes to treating acne. Cleanse your face gently after waking up in the morning and before going to bed at night.

5. Tea tree oil may be used to treat particular areas.

Tea tree oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, making it ideal for reducing acne-related inflammation. It has the potential to moisturize the skin and help restore its natural oil balance as a natural moisturizer.

Thanks for reading.

I hope it works for you to keep rocking your beautiful face.
