How to Get Rid of Underground Pimples
Pimples that form bumps and do not come to a head are often caused by a buildup of bacteria under the surface of the skin. However, there are treatments that can help to clear up pimples beneath the skin in a short amount of time according to Julia Lawless, author of "The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils: The Complete Guide to the Use of Aromatic Oils in Aromatherapy, Herbalism, Health and Well-Being," and Marcel Lavabre, author of "Aromatherapy Workbook."

Roman chamomile essential oil, ½ tsp. true lavender essential oil, ½ tsp. lemon essential oil, ¼ tsp. tea tree essential oil, ¼ tsp. rosemary essential oil, ¼ tsp. palmarosa essential oil and 1 cup jojoba oil in an amber colored bottle with a tight fitting lid.
Cover the bottle and shake it gently for 10 seconds to combine essential oils and how global oil.
Pour 1 teaspoon of the essential oil mixture onto a cotton ball. Dab the cotton ball on the affected area of skin gently for 15 to 20 seconds.
