How to Get Rid of a Pimple Fast: Three Best Tips

Finding out how to get rid of a pimple fast isn’t hard. It’s actually picking your remedy of choice and getting rid of it that’s the real snafu. But not to worry, getting rid of your pimples isn’t that hard with the right help.

These aren’t just some acne tricks I pulled randomly out of a hat. These are tips I’ve used myself and have found to be quite successful.

How to get rid of a pimple fast with aloe vera

You might think of aloe vera as more of a sunburn treatment than anything. But what you might not know is that aloe vera can be used for lots of redness and irritation. Aloe vera juice can go down your throat to help cure heartburn while putting it on your skin gets rid of redness and peeling.

Well, when it comes into contact with your pimple, it does several things. First, it helps take care of the bacteria that’s festering inside. Then, it reduces the redness that’s flaring up on your face. Lastly, the aloe vera keeps your skin from peeling as a result of too much picking and poking or an overdose of cleanser.

How to get rid of a pimple fast with a spot treatment

Some pimples don’t respond to aloe vera, so for those deep down needs of yours, apply a spot treatment to your zit.

Now, when I say “spot treatment,” that’s exactly what I mean. I don’t want you smearing this all over your face, because it doesn’t belong all over your face. It will dry out skin that’s not affected and its effects might be reduced where they’re most needed.

Apply a dabble of spot treatment on top of the zit only. Rub it in and let it air dry. Wash your fingers so you don’t get the stuff on any other material, as it could bleach it.

What should you look for in a spot treatment? If you really want it to do you some good, get a treatment with alpha hydroxy acids, at least 5% benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, at least 2% salicylic acid or glycolic acid. Don’t mix them all together! Just use one.

How to get rid of a pimple fast with toothpaste

There’s a right way and a wrong way to get rid of a pimple fast with toothpaste. The right way means you’re putting the toothpaste only on top of the zit, and only for 10 to 15 minutes. Any more than this, and you can dry out your skin too much as well as cause scarring or pitting (I’ve been there! Believe me, you want no part of that!)

Rinse the toothpaste off at the end of 10-15 minutes. Pat it dry with a very soft, clean washcloth, towel or facial tissue. If you notice your skin peeling, you might want to apply a little lotion so it doesn’t get itchy and irritated.
