Pimple is a recurring problem for many women and they come without any prior notice. We all get panicked if we see a pimple a day before our birthday party or our best friends’ wedding. But, there are some home remedies that can dry pimple overnight. In this post, I will tell you about 10 amazing ways that will help you to make a pimple dry and disappear within a night.
1. Tooth paste:
Instead of using toothpaste at the beginning of the day, use it before you go to sleep at night to fight the pimples away. Use a cotton bud and apply the toothpaste just on the pimple. The antibacterial properties of the toothpaste eliminate the bacteria and also dry it down. In the next morning, it looks tinier and drier. It won’t leave a scar either and it definitely won’t grow back. This is the most common way of dealing with pimples at home.
If pimple is giving you headache, aspirin can help you. But instead of taking it as medicine, you need to apply it on the pimple. Crush a tablet and make a paste using water and then apply it on the pimple using a Q-tip. The anti-inflammatory properties of aspirin help to reduce the swelling. It also dehydrates the pimple and opens up the pore which helps to remove the accumulated pus, sebum and dirt. The pimple dries down easily in this manner.
This mouthwash contains anti-microbial properties which help to kill the bacteria and dry the pimple. It also has eucalyptus oil that keeps the area oil-free and prevents further breakout. Use a tiny amount on the pimple using a cotton swab to see effective results.
4. Baking Soda
You will have to make a paste of baking soda and water and apply it on the affected area. Baking soda helps to balance skin pH and reduces inflammation. It helps to heal the pimple and soothe the skin overnight.
Often we do not get time to apply anything on the pimple. At those times of emergency, an ice cube can help. You can rub an ice cube over a pimple for a few minutes and repeat it every hour before going to bed. The ice calms down the skin and also dries the area. It shrinks the pimple noticeably and gives relief.
6. Aloe Vera Gel
We all have this wonder plant at home or a tube of aloe gel in our dressing unit. For the sudden pimple attacks, you need this gel to prevent it from creating havoc. You can apply it just on the pimple or on the whole skin in general. It has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It helps to dry down the pimple without making the skin dry and dehydrated.
7. Hydrogen Peroxide
This chemical not only helps to dry the pimples fast but also works on scars and blemishes. You will have to soak a cotton ball with the product and dab it all over your clean, dry face. After 5 minutes, you must wash the face and apply oil-free moisturiser. It dries the pimples super fast and also works on the scars. If you get acne breakouts often, this product is surely going to help.
8. Multani Mitti
This desi ingredient can never go wrong. When you need to treat a pimple overnight, make a paste of multani mitti and rose water and apply it on the pimple. As it dries overnight, it removes all excess oil from the area and prevents the pimple from growing further. It also removes impurities and thus calms down the swelled pimple. It stimulates the blood circulation and purifies the area.
9. Cinnamon Powder and Honey
Use this potent combination on the pimple to get rid of it as quickly as possible. Both honey and cinnamon has anti-microbial properties that help to get rid of the pimple super fast. Cinnamon dries the pimple while honey nourishes and softens the skin. So, when you apply it overnight, you get pimple-free smooth skin which is not dry and looks healthy.
10. Essential Oil
A number of essential oils are great when it comes to treating pimples. Tea tree oil, primrose oil, castor oil, grape seed oil and lemongrass oil are great to dry the pimple. The essential oils are very potent and when applied directly on the pimple, they get the job done within a night. The best options are tee tree and lemon grass oil in my opinion but, you can always try and find out which one suits you the best.
These are quick pimple healing tips that works on sudden breakouts. But, if you get pimples often, it is better to consult a dermatologist to get the problem addressed properly. But till then, these SOS will definitely help you.
