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.

Wanting to cover unwanted birthmarks and blemishes is a common need. There are products on the market like camouflage makeup that are invented to cover dark areas. The make-up lines Dermablend and Coverblend both have corrective cosmetics strictly formulated for your body and legs that does a good job covering birthmarks and other spots. Bleaching creams can work sometimes, but you have to be extremely careful when using them and should consult a dermatologist before attempting to bleach the area. Lemon juice may help but probably won’t do much to correct the problem.
