How to Get Rid of Pimples Quickly at Home
Pimples can be painful and unsightly. Quick treatment of your pimples can be obtained at home by utilizing a variety of ingredients that you likely have in your kitchen, according to "Braun-Falco's Dermatology." Treating your acne daily will typically lead to full results in six to eight weeks, according to "Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice," though dramatic results are often seen in as little as two to three days.
Saturate a washcloth with warm water. Hold the washcloth against your face for one to two minutes. According to "Braun-Falco's Dermatology," this will dilate your pores.
Cleanse your face with an acne cleanser, which can be purchased at a drug store. Use a gentle circular motion when washing your face. According to "Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice," it is important to avoid scrubbing your face, as this can cause microscopic tears in your skin, which can encourage bacteria to become trapped in the skin and cause further breakouts.
Saturate your washcloth with cool water and place it on your face for one to minutes. This will constrict your pores, preventing oil, dirt and bacteria from becoming trapped in your pores, according to "Handbook of Dermatology: A Practical Manual."
Dry your face with a towel. Gently pat your face dry. Avoid scrubbing your face to prevent skin tears and the spread of bacteria.
Apply a small amount of benzoyl peroxide cream, which can be purchased at a drug store, to a cotton swab. Use the cotton swab to apply the benzoyl peroxide cream to a pimple. According to "Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice," it is important to use a new cotton swab for each pimple to avoid spreading bacteria.
