Get Rid of Pimples Overnight: 5 Ways to Get Rid of Pimples Overnight
Doctors and dermatologists have a tendency to claim that you can't get rid of pimples overnight. I'm here to tell you that they're lying. You can get rid of pimples overnight, and I'll show you five easy ways to do just that.
2. Orange peel facial: Make an easy poultice of grated orange peel and water to get rid of bacteria in the pimple. Simply grind some orange peel with a potato peeler or grater and mix the shavings with 1 tablespoon of water. Wash your face with a facial cleanser and apply the poultice to each of your pimples. Leave it on until it's dried - usually about 15 minutes or so. Rinse it off with warm water, and pat your face dry with a clean washcloth.
3. Remove the pimple with a blackhead/whitehead extractor: This takes a special touch, but you can easily get rid of a pimple with an extractor tool as long as it's not a cyst. If you can see the white head on top of the pimple, it is safe to remove the pimple.
To begin, wash your face and sanitize the extractor tool in alcohol or hydrogen peroxide if it's not clean from a previous use. Using the looped end (or the cupped end, depending on which style you own), gently glide the tool over your pimple until the pus oozes out. Don't press so hard you begin to make impressions in your skin. Stop immediately if you start drawing blood out of the pore instead of pus.
4. Remove the pimple using Q-tips: If you don't have an acne extractor tool, you can use this simple technique to get rid of your pimples overnight without causing a scar. Take one Q-tip, break it in half, and arrange the two soft heads on either side of the pimple. With ever so little pressure, squeeze the pimple with the two ends, and soak up the pus with the cotton. Stop if you start squeezing out blood.
Apply benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid cream or spray to the pimple after extracting it; if you need to cover up the little red spot, use an oil-free cover up or concealer.
5. Apply a little sulfur treatment, like the kind that comes in the Proactiv bonus kit, to your pimple for ten minutes. Wash it off with warm water and a washcloth and don't apply any other treatments for at least four hours afterwards.
