what would you go to get rid of your acne

There is nothing like waking up to a large blemish on the day of an important life event. You didn’t see it coming, there’s no specific reason why it’s there. Yet there it is. Front and center, on your big day. What can you do? There are actually many methods for quickly getting rid of acne. Some are safer and more effective than others and some are down right strange. Here are 11 things people are willing to do to get rid of acne and many are in your medicine cabinet right now:


1)  Toothpaste – This trick has been around forever so you may already be familiar. Dab a bit of toothpaste onto the pimple and leave it for about 10 minutes. It will dry the area immediately and reduce swelling. If you have sensitive skin be sure to apply only where the pimple is, as ingredients can cause red circles where its applied so use with caution.


2)  Tea Tree Oil – There are so many uses for tea tree oil and acne treatment is one of them. Be sure to perform a patch test before using it, as it can be irritating for some people. Check out livestrong.com for specific application and patch test instructions.


3)  Eye Drops – They get the red out right? Well they do the same for the skin. Just dab sparingly onto the blemish and watch the red disappear.


4)  Ice – It seems obvious but it really will help with swelling. Cleanse the skin first with a hot cloth and then apply ice wrapped in a paper towel or napkin for 10-15 minutes and the swelling will begin to disappear.


5)  Apples– According to facingacne.com, “One approach to dealing with allergies that trigger acne outbreaks on the skin is to incorporate a natural antihistamine, quercetin, into your diet.”


6)  Aloe – A long time skin soother, aloe can help calm an especially irritated pimple.  Simple dab some on with a Q-Tip.


7)  Hydrogen Peroxide – Not new to the arsenal, hydrogen peroxide is a great way to disinfect the skin but it can be irritating too so use sparingly and spot treat only the affected areas with a Q-tip or clean finger.       


8)  Steam – Steaming the skin can be a great way to extract pimples safely. So if you need to extract, try steaming over a pot of hot before you extract. It will open the pores of the skin allowing extractions more easily and causing less trauma to the skin. Be sure to stay a safe distance away from the pot, to protect from burns. 


9)  Rubbing Alcohol – A great way to de-fat the skin, rubbing alcohol will remove leftover impurities and will dry the oils in the skin that can be causing the blemishes. Like some of the other remedies, it should be used sparingly as it can also dry the skin.


10)  Cortisone – If all of the above have not worked or sound like too much work, contact your dermatologist. Ask for a same day appointment for a cortisone shot. It’s not painful, and works like a charm, almost immediately.

The skin needs it to function and it acts as a barrier protecting the it, but too much can cause acne.
