How to Get Rid of Under the Skin Pimples Fast
Pimples that start deep in the skin's pores can often be felt prior to being seen on the skin's surface, according to "Braun-Falco's Dermatology." These pimples commonly feel like hard bumps and are painful for the sufferer, according to "Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice." Relief can be had in a few days with daily treatment of these pimples, according to "Handbook of Dermatology: A Practical Manual," and full results can be expected in six to eight weeks.
Splash warm water on your face to dilate your pores. According to "Braun-Falco's Dermatology," this will enable the facial cleanser to kill the bacteria causing the pimples under your skin.
Wash your face with a facial cleanser. Use gentle circular motions to wash your entire face, spending extra time over the parts of your face with pimples under the skin.
Mix 2 tsp. baking soda with 1 tsp. water to form a paste. Apply this paste to the parts of your face with pimples under your skin.
Allow the baking soda paste to dry and rest on your skin for at least an hour. You may wish to sleep with this paste on your skin for optimal results. According to "Cosmetic Dermatology: Principles and Practice," baking soda can be left on your skin for up to 10 hours and is used to neutralize the pH of your skin and kill bacteria-causing pimples.
Rinse the baking soda paste off of your skin with cool water. Splash your entire face with cool water to constrict your skin's pores, which according to "Handbook of Dermatology: A Practical Manual," will prevent future breakouts.
