There are many ways to remove pimples; some are directed to remove pimples in a snap while some are designed to remove pimples in the long run.
Following are some guidelines on how to remove pimples properly without threatening to spread more infection in surrounding area.
Apply a benzoyl peroxide medication to the pimple but do not apply medication to the surrounding area.
A facial mud mask may do the trick. The mask could shrink a pimple.
Buy and apply anti-bacterial, oil-free concealer to the affected area. This could make the pimple’s redness blend well with the skin color so as to make it less noticeable.
Do not forget that pimples are caused by numerous factors: hormonal activity, buildup of bacteria and shedding of dead skin cells. Try as much as possible to counter all of these pimple-causing factors by engaging in a lifestyle that is beneficial for your skin and body. Make sure your skin is always clean, try to eat food good for your skin, avoid oily food, and maintain a clean and hygienic environment.
Do not touch your pimples. Or even if you don’t have pimples, try not to touch your face often as the face is sensitive and touching it with hands that is full of invisible bacteria and dirt could bring more pimple-causing bacteria to your face.
Try, as much as possible, to control yourself from attacking the plugged sebaceous glands. Do not pop your pimples as they can cause infections and may even leave a scar on your face. Scars look much worse than pimples because they are permanent and are hard to make them unnoticeable.
If you still can’t resist yourself from popping the pimple, just make sure you do it when your hands are clean. Lightly squeeze the top of the pimple with a cotton swab or tissue. Clean the affected area after you have popped it. If after you have done the step and the pimple did not pop, do not do anything. Just leave it alone. It will pop when it is time.
Blemishes caused by pimple take about a month to completely disappear. Have patience, the marks will go away in time.
If you are desperate and wanted to a quick pimples remedy, consult a dermatologist first. He may opt to give you a shot of cortisone that will eliminate the pimple.
If you have recurring cases of pimple breakouts, it is best to talk about the case with a dermatologist as this may be indicative of a presence of a chronic skin disease. Dermatologists have the authority to let you use other medications that will solve your skin problem like antibiotics, or even Accutane for severe cases of acne.
Think hard before using Accutane as though it is the only one that provides a long-term solution for severe acne, it also has side effects.
