Acne, pimples, breakouts… basic skin problems that never seem to go away.
And once they start, they’re hard to stop. What’s worse? Scars may stick around for a while. How to get rid of pimples fast at home?
Skin cleanliness is most important for preventing pimples and acne. If your skin has heavy sebum and is acne-prone, it may be a hot bed for infection. Use a functional cosmetic designed with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Antibacterial means products designed to fight skin infections. These infections are what lead the skin to become inflamed and eventually form pimples. Luckily, there are many cleansers and moisturizers out there with antibacterial ingredients. Use an ampoule or essence having antibacterial and/or anti-inflammatory ingredients to replenish moisture. Also you can use creams of the same ingredients.
So, how to manage and get rid of pimples after they’ve formed?
Even if you use antibacterial skin care products regularly, pimples can still pop up. There’s a proper way for dealing with them depending on the severity. We’ll take a look at each case:
If you have just one or two pimples that are already red or infected:
You can still do a normal skincare routine and use exfoliators, just avoid the troubled area around the pimples. Use a moisturizing, soothing mask pack for your entire face.
If the troubled areas are itchy:
If the inflamed areas are itchy, there is a high chance there is a skin infection. Stop using your regular skincare cosmetics and simply moisturize the non-troubled areas with a light cream or gel. You should also stop using exfoliators and mask packs. It is recommended to see a dermatologist as soon as possible.
Pimples that are discolored or have turned yellow (whiteheads):
If you have one or two pimples, you can hygienically pop the pimples (see below). However, if the number is high, it should be worked on by a professional doctor or nurse. This will prevent acne scars from forming or possible reinfections.
How to get rid of pimples fast at home:
Preparation: a disposable needle, a comedone extractor, a q-tip, alcohol swab, a pimple patch
1) Wash and clean your face.
2) Disinfect the disposable needle and comedone extractor with an alcohol swab.
3) Gently use the needle to poke the center of the pimple. This makes an exit path for the pus.
4) Use the comedone extractor to push the area around the pimple. When pus emerges, wipe with a q-tip.
5) After all pus has been cleared, wipe and disinfect the area with the alcohol swab.
6) After drying, put a pimple patch over the area.
You may notice that new pus forms on the pimple patch after a few hours. This is a sign that new skin is growing, but pus is still there.
7) Keep refreshing the patch until you don’t see any pus form on the patch. (2-3 days)
8) Apply functional cosmetics designed for skin regeneration to prevent scars from forming.
Red pimple (not whiteheads or blackheads)
Apply an antibiotic ointment (neosporin) two or three times a day with a q-tip. Avoid touching the area with your hands. The antibiotic ointment should be applied to extra troubled spots more frequently. If there is little improvement in a week, you should go see a skin specialist.
Skin care tips after visiting a skin clinic:
After the area is treated professionally, the area may appear swollen and red. After the visit, just moisturize with water gel or a light cream. Two days after the visit, you can continue to use your basic skincare regime. Finish your skincare routine with a moisturizing, soothing mask pack. Five days after your skin has cleared, you may use an exfoliator to remove dead skin.
For pimples, acne, and breakouts, hygiene and hygiene are the most important.
Also remember to never touch pimples by hand, never forcibly squeeze pus out, and use only sterilized needles and comedone extractors.
