How Do I Get Rid Of A Pimple Overnight?
Picture this—school starts tomorrow which means you’ve spent the past few months preparing for the first day. However, one thing you didn’t plan for is that stubborn pimple staring you straight in your face. So you weigh your options. Do you pop it, cover it in toothpaste, figure out a home remedy or just leave it alone? Whether you have sensitive, oily or acne-prone skin, we can help clear up all of your questions—and your acne.
Pimples form when your pores become clogged with oil, dirt, debris, bacteria, and even dead skin. If you know a thing or two about Skincare 101, one of the most basic ways to prevent pimples altogether is by washing your face every day, especially before bed. While you may not be able to see it, oil transfers to your pillows in your sleep, and this can cause acne if you’re not careful. But let’s be honest—if simply washing your face was the solution to all of your acne problems, skincare wouldn’t be nearly as evolved or effective as it is today.
There are plenty of things you can do to get rid of a pimple overnight, but the fastest way to boot blemishes is to apply Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) as a spot treatment. BPO executes the “dirty work” by killing all the bacteria that clogs your pores and causes inflammation. Plus, it has anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce the redness and soreness that come with cystic acne. To use BPO as an overnight spot treatment, first dab a small amount on a Q-tip, then cover the problem area. Doing this will help dry out the pimple and possibly even reduce or eliminate it as well—all while you’re in a deep sleep.
Do Your Homework
Another helpful tip is to create a skincare routine that works for you and your specific skin type. Just because your favorite influencer loves a product doesn’t mean your skin will. First, it’s important that you identify what kind of skin you have. Keep in mind, it’s not unusual for some parts of your skin to be oily while other areas are dry. That’s called combination skin, which according to experts, is the most common skin type. It’s also not unusual for your skin to change based on the season or climate. By identifying and monitoring your skin type early on, it’s easier to get ahead of finding affordable acne treatments and regimens.
Understand The Assignment
An important detail for you to figure out is how much time you’re willing to spend on your skincare regimen. Some people spend an hour a day on their skin while others prefer to spend as little as five minutes. There is no right or wrong answer to this question, as long as you do what works best for you.
While fast-working and free may sound appealing to your wallet, it’s not always the best way to proceed when it comes to your skin. One thing you should absolutely try to avoid is popping pimples. The reason for this is that if the pimple is not ready to be popped, it will likely leave a scar. Plus, when your hands and fingernails aren’t properly sanitized, you can accidentally contaminate the pimple, causing the swelling to spread.
