Dry out nasty Pimples!

Who doesn't hate pimples? And sometimes you just can't resist the urge to pop 'em! Here are some quick tips on how to dry them out!

1. Toothpaste works very well in an emergency, 'it is probabaly the fastest and harshest way, I try to avoid it because it's really drying, but it will drain out the life out of you pimple very quickly! You might want to moisturize the area aftewards, because no one wants flaky skin!

2. Eye drops will really help reduce redness, they don't only work for making your eyes less red, they make you pimples less red as well!

3. Ice cubes before putting your make-up in the morning will reduce the size, making it way easier to cover up your unwanted friend. P.S. green concealers cancel out redness!

4.  benzoyl peroxide 5% . This is a trick I haven't tried, so I can't tell you exacly how it works, but my friend loves it so I'll trust her judgement.

5.  Anti-zits creams and solutions.  Clean and clear, garnier, nivea, every brand seams to have one! Just find the one that works best for you, try one from a pharmacy, or ask your dermatologist!

Remember, try not to pop them! I know it is so tempting, but you are actually not helping at all! Try to forget it is there, I have an ugly pimple on my nose and it seams to shout at everyone:
-Look at me! I bet you can't miss me!
Yeah, I hope I don't pop it by the end of the day!


  1. this is a great post :) Haven't tried the eye drops trick yet :)

  2. Great tips! One thing that works too, is putting on a dab of of a facial clay mask just on top of the pimple and letting it dry, then sleep like that all night. You wouldn't believe how much smaller your pimple is by morning!
