Pimples: We’ve all had them, we’ve all squeezed them. But, what should we do?

We’ve all freaked out while waking up to a giant pimple in our face the morning before a big presentation at work or a date we are excited about. Before putting off all your appointments of the day, there are some tips to follow before making it look even worse.

Extraction

You could clean your skin with rubbing alcohol and wear rubber gloves to gently extract it, then apply hydrogen peroxide to prevent infection. If you are not confident, however, you can clean our skin using a spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, and camphor, make sure not to overuse them because they tend to be dehydrating.

Unless you are careful and you know how to do it, consult a specialist.

DIY treatment

You can mix the powder of a non-fizzy aspirin pill with some Geek yogurt and apply it directly on the pimple, let it sit for 15, and rinse. This will reduce inflammation.

Be patient

You have to be patient and consistent with your skincare routine. This will prevent new spots from appearing, but it will take roughly six or more weeks for the products used to treat acne to work.
