When people think of zits on one’s face, they often reach the conclusion that this is acne and that acne could be only a part of a teenager’s life. Even though teenagers have to deal with pimples and acne in general, this does not mean that only they have this skin problem.
Pimples can also be a part of an adult’s life, unfortunately, no matter of one’s age. If a person has a lot of pimples, this could mean that they have some hormonal imbalance. Sometimes it is not only a skin problem, but some health problem which results in breakouts.
And since we know that pimples can be extremely annoying and that it is often difficult to get rid of them fast, we have prepared for you a list of tips which can help you get rid of pimples quickly. Here it is!
The first of the things you can try to get rid of some pimples fast is toothpaste. This is because toothpaste consists of anti-inflammatory ingredients and can help kill the pimple-causing bacteria. As a result, one’s pimples can disappear faster since there is no agent there which causes them to appear.
What you need to do is to apply some toothpaste on your pimples and to wait for about 10-20 minutes, until the toothpaste dries completely and then to wash if off. If you want this treatment to have success, then you definitely should be persistent and should apply toothpaste on your pimples daily until they disappear.
But remember, if your skin is too sensitive, then maybe this treatment is not for you because the toothpaste will irritate it.
The next treatment you can try if you want to get rid of pimples is using lemon juice. As you probably know, lemon juice consists of acids which will be good at fighting pimple-causing bacteria.
What you need to do is to get some fresh lemon juice and to apply it on a cotton swab. Then you need to apply the soaked with lemon juice swab on the area of your skin with pimples. You can hold it like that for a couple of minutes and then not to wash your face.
It would be best if you do this treatment every night before going to bed until the pimples disappear. This way the treatment will be most effective. However, you still need to have in mind that the lemon juice will irritate your skin, so make sure you apply the lemon juice only on your pimples.
#3 Apply ice on the pimples
The next thing you can try for getting rid of the pimples you have quickly is apply some ice on them. The cold temperature will help the pimple get suppressed and at the same time it will get rid of any redness around it which can be as annoying as having a zit.
Of course, this does not mean that the zit will magically disappear or that it will shrink, but it will prevent it from getting bigger and more inflamed. That is why it is best to apply this treatment when you notice any pimples appearing.
Another thing you could try to easily get rid of pimples is steaming. This treatment is particularly good for people who have sensitive skin since it will not irritate them. Pimples are often caused by clogged pores. Sometimes pores clog because there is too much dirt, or too much oil in the pores that they cannot go freely through the pores and clog it.
Steaming will help your pores open up and help the dirt and oil from your clogged pores get out of your skin. What you need to do is heat some water and when it starts steaming bend your face over the steam. Stand like that for as long as you or for a couple of minutes at least. The more time you stay there, the better results you can expect, but of course you need to be persistent as well.
#5 Take brewer’s yeast
The last tip we have included for you today is actually not one which will help you get rid of pimples quickly, but it will help for their prevention. Once you get rid of the zits on your face, I am sure you will not want having them around again. In order to do this, you can try out taking brewer’s yeast.
Brewer’s yeast has a lot of benefits because it consists of chromium, copper, vitamins B, zinc and iron. It has antibacterial agents which do not allow pimples to break out on your skin. There are even researches taken out which have concluded that brewer’s yeast heals pimples or generally improves skin condition. The good thing about it is that it does not have side effects apart from some minor inconveniences, like gas or bloating, in some cases.
