Most people spend plenty of time to look presentable for a date.
Some people, in fact, spend a day at the salon to prettify themselves before a date night.
Imagine: preparing the most flattering dress, killer heels, and even getting your nails done, only to find out that a large pimple appeared the day before your date.
You rack your brain for the reason behind this pimple’s presence. And then you remember that you’ve been too preoccupied with stressing about this special event that you forgot to focus on your daily skincare regimen, which is full of Aviance products.
Don’t go popping that pimple just yet! Here are some emergency home remedies for that monstrous pimple.
In order to successfully get rid of a pimple, here are the key points to keep in mind.
The products from Aviance can provide the necessary cleansing and restoration for your skin without being too harsh.
It may be tempting to pop a pimple because doing so seems to extinguish the problem, but don’t do it!
In fact, doing so would just make the situation worse, because it will turn into an open wound and eventually form a scab.
Though it is not advisable to cover a pimple with makeup, like concealer and foundation, a pimple is still easier to cover up than an open wound.
Only use this to check if the plug can already be removed from the pore.
Just loop the extractor around a pimple and see if the plug will pop out easily.
If it does not, then do not force the plug to come out. Doing so will only cause the pore to erupt, which might lead to hemorrhage on your skin.
This may be a surprising technique, yet it is highly effective.
Toothpaste labeled as “plaque fighting” has gentle bactericides that fend off bacteria in the mouth.
The bacteria-fighting ingredients of a toothpaste can prevent the development of pimples. These active ingredients can penetrate even deep into the skin’s dermis layer, which is where acne-causing bacteria breeds.
Honey has a very powerful antibacterial property that can be useful against pimple-causing bacteria.
It is also hygroscopic, which means that it draws out the skin’s moisture where these bacteria breed and grow.
In addition, the low pH level hinders any further development of the bacteria on the skin.
When trying this method, make sure that the pimple has not undergone any physical trauma. If it is applied on a popped pimple, lemon’s acid could burn an open wound and eventually lead to scarring.
Lemon contains ascorbic acids which can act as an antibacterial, which can help ward off the acne-causing bacteria and dry out the blemish.
It can also be used as an astringent to shrink down the size of the pores and tighten the skin.
As an added bonus, lemon is also an effective bleaching agent for old acne scars and dark spots. Just make sure to avoid direct exposure to sunlight afterward, since the lemon extract made the skin sensitive towards the sun.
Mix in some salt with hot water. Afterward, soak some paper towel in the blend and position it directly over the concerned area.
The skin’s pores will open up because of the hot water, and the salt will dry out the excess oils.
Soak a cotton ball with a witch hazel astringent, then gently press it against the pimple for a minute.
Aside from a natural and long-lasting fragrance, rosewater also helps calm down and repair the skin.
There are some bottles of rosewater sold in drugstores and beauty counters, but it can also be done at home.
Place freshly removed rose petals in a pot and pour in an ample amount of distilled water in it. Make sure that you don’t put too much water, or else the mix will be too diluted.
Simmer the mixture over medium heat for twenty to thirty minutes.
Afterward, strain the rose particles. Store the blend in a jar and apply to the problem area.
Rubbing frozen green tea over the affected area two or three times a day can help soothe the skin and ease the swelling. Plus, the green tea acts as a natural astringent.
For worse case scenarios, and if the pimple does not dry out before the date, you may need to apply a concealer. But make sure that the concealer is non-comedogenic, so that the pimple’s condition will not worsen.
There are plenty of ways to calm down a pimple, and most of them are remedies that you can do at the comforts of your home.
But at the end of the day, prevention is still better than cure.
To make sure that your skin is in its prime condition during a date, then don’t forget to stock up on your trusted skin care products from Aviance.
