Nobody likes acne flare-ups! Although others will never be as observant of your temporary imperfections as you are, it’s still hard to not let something like a big zit in the middle of your forehead tarnish your mood. As much as we all hate to admit it, blemishes and breakouts can be confidence killers. That being said, here are 5 remedies for getting rid of pimples quickly so you can get back to clearer days!
An over-the-counter spot treatment can often be enough to conquer that one stubborn pimple that randomly pops up in the worst places. When choosing a spot treatment, look for acne-fighting ingredients like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid!
Hydrocolloid acne patches are perfect for penetrating and extracting the contents of most types of acne. These patches can be worn throughout the day or overnight, and will protect pimples from bacteria while they heal. You can also check out our Spotted Anti-Blemish Patches for blemish reduction and extra healing help!
Applying ice to problem areas can help reduce inflammation. Just make sure to wrap the ice so it does not come in direct contact with your skin, and to only apply it for short periods of time.
Acne-fighting face masks are super useful for minimizing breakouts. Lucky for you, we have a selection of masks here at Maskeraide that will surely do the job - take a look at our Detoxifying Sheet Mask, Matcha Detoxifying Clay Mask, as well as our Pore Cleansing Charcoal Bubble Mask!
Let your skin breathe
When your skin is already agitated and broken out, it’s important to avoid clogging your pores with heavy makeup. Using a light foundation made specifically for acne-prone skin tends to cause less damage while still providing coverage.
Acne is an extremely common and natural thing to deal with, and some of us are just more prone to it than others. While there’s nothing wrong with having blemishes, there’s also nothing wrong with taking steps to clear up your skin if that’s what makes you feel most confident. We hope these tips help you next time you’re dealing with a stubborn zit!
