You know what the best thing about breakouts is? The perfect timing.
Our worst breakouts always seem to pop up the morning of a super important event.
Am I right?
When you see it, you most likely let out a slew of curse words. You may begin to pick and prod, which only upsets the little bugger even more! By the time you leave the house, your probably feeling a bit P.O’d.
These few tips will help you power through the worst of your blemish-filled rage while shrinking that little sucker to nothing!
Here’s How to Get Rid of a Huge Pimple Fast!:
1. Ice Cube: Applying an ice cube or frozen spoon to an angry blemish will help to reduce the inflammation associated with a breakout. Apply the ice to the pimple for a few seconds at a time. If you can handle more than a few seconds of the freezing cold cube, apply the ice for longer. Repeat this process as much as possible before you leave the house. Keep in mind your skin may be a bit red from the cold ice, so leave a window of time for your red face to thaw before heading out.
2. Honey: Honey is the clear skin savior. The magical properties of honey can dramatically reduce the size of a breakout in a few hours. Okay, it may not be magic, however the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties in honey help to reduce the size of a breakout while preventing the growth of bacteria. Simply massage a small amount of honey into the affected area. Feel free to reapply throughout the day as necessary. If you are lucky enough to notice the breakout the night before your big gig, apply a drop of honey to the breakout before bed. Covering the honey with a bandaid will prevent the sticky honey from spreading all over your precious pillows.
3. Bentonite Clay: Bentonite clay is one of those awesome clays that does it all: tightens face, clears blackheads, reduces breakouts and detoxes congested pores. This absorbent clay helps to shrink the size of a breakout in a pinch. You can literally feel your skin tightening as the mask dries. Begin by mixing bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar until it forms a yogurt-like consistency. Apply the mask to your whole face or to the problem area. Leave the face mask on until dry; leave the spot treatment on for as long as you’d like. This little trick has worked every time!
4. Turmeric: Reducing the size of a rather large breakout is as easy as reaching into your spice rack. While you’re in there, go ahead and grab the turmeric. This amazing spice has awesome anti-inflammatory properties, as well as antiseptic properties that help destroy acne causing bacteria while absorbing excess oil. Mix 3/4 tsp of turmeric with 1.5 tsp of orange juice until a thick paste forms. Apply this spot treatment to the large and in charge breakout and watch it shrink in size. The turmeric may stain your skin yellow, but don’t be alarmed. Within a wash or two, the yellow hue fades.
