Three Tips For Treating An Unsightly Pimple

Just because you aren’t a teenager anymore doesn’t mean you’re never going to have a pimple again. When the unthinkable happens, you don’t have to run for your foundation and concealer to cover it up. There are a few tactics you can use to treat the actual zit and prevent it from leaving a nasty scar. Here are some tips you can take into account to speed up the healing process.

1. Wash your face twice a day
To keep your pores clean and prevent bacteria from agitating the pimple, it’s important to wash your face twice a day, according to Medical News Today. Use a mild soap to keep your skin from drying out.

2. Use benzoyl peroxide.
One ingredient you may see in your skincare products as you try to combat your pimple is benzoyl peroxide. This chemical can get rid of oil within pores and keep zits clean, promoting the healing process.

3. Go light on the makeup
To prevent future breakouts and give your pimple a better chance of subsiding, try not to cake on makeup, which can clog your pores and make it tough for your skin to breathe.

Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
