Best Tip For Getting Rid Of A Pimple
They're ugly. They're a pain to get rid of. Pimples. Everyone hates them. There are tons of products on the market for "quickly zapping" them. Most of them don't work and dry out your skin. The ingredients basically suck out the oils so a side effect is dry patches on your skin (not pretty). You've been told to exfoliate to scrub the dirt out. But that can actually agitate the affected area. So what do you do?
Usually the best thing to do is leave it alone. I know - crazy! When a pimple is just starting to form, try to leave it alone. Usually it will go away in a few days (sorry, no instant gratification!). Keep your skin clean but avoid rough exfoliaters. Yes, it may be necessary to use a zit zapping product when it's really gross (green head forms) and is putting a lot of pressure on your skin. But try and keep the infected area clean so you don't have to use harsh zit zappers.
