We have all been in a situation, at one time or another, where we had a big event coming up and suddenly had a huge pimple on our faces. This can be embarrassing and upsetting, especially if you expect to have your photo taken at your special event. Although it is impossible to make a pimple disappear over night, there are ways to reduce skin inflammation and greatly reduce the appearance of the pimple.
Use Cold Compresses to Reduce Skin Inflammation
One of the simplest and most effective things you can do to reduce skin inflammation and start removing a pimple is to apply cold compresses. If you have an ice pack for injuries or even a small bag of ice, apply it directly to the pimple. This will contract the blood vessels underneath the surface of the skin, dramatically reducing the redness on the surface. It will also reduce the swelling on and around the pimple, making it appear smaller in size.
Natural Oils Can Help Heal a Pimple
These days, many people have essential oils in their medicine cabinet to help with small illnesses and injuries. Many of these oils can be used to reduce skin inflammation and make it easier to cover up pimples and other blemishes. Among the most effective oils for pimples are chamomile, peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils. When using natural oils to treat a pimple, be sure to mix it with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or olive oil to avoid irritation from full power essential oils.
Cover the Pimple with a Natural Concealer
Once you have used a simple, natural method to reduce skin inflammation on and around your pimple, there may still be a little bit of redness to cover up. It is fine to do this with makeup but be sure to use an organic concealer to do it. It is especially important to avoid any makeup products that have artificial fragrances of colors. Although they may cover up the pimple for the time being, they are likely to cause even more blemishes in the long run.
Pimples can be embarrassing and upsetting, especially when they come up before an important event. Although there is no way to get rid of a pimple in a few hours, there are quick and simple ways to reduce skin inflammation. Once you have reduced the inflammation, cover up the remaining redness with an all-natural makeup product for a quick fix.
