There are many ways to clean up your face and get rid of that zit quickly. Actually, the most effective method is to use a variety of methods at once. If you’ve ever had bacne, you may already know a few of these techniques. The quickest way to remove any of these annoying facial annoyances is different for everyone, as each skin has it’s own toughness, pH levels, and other varying factors. I recommend trying all of these methods one at a time until you find one that suits you and best cures your acne. Here are some examples of things you should do if you want get rid of your pimple in a day:
This method is quite simple, but not very traditional. Some may even consider this a secret of getting rid of pimples and zits quickly. Super cheap and extremely easy, you can clear up your face within a few days. First, crack around 3-4 eggs in a bowl and scoop out the egg yolk so all you have is the whites. Whisk the egg whites vigorously for about 180 seconds. Use a paintbrush, or your hand if you wish, to apply this liquid to the acne on your face. Wait for the first coat to dry, and keep putting coats of egg whites on your face for a total of five times. After you have completed this long process, take a shower and rinse off the dried liquid from your face. If your face dried out in the process, apply a soothing moisturizer. Repeat this daily until you no longer have pimples.
Egg whites will also get rid of acne scars and cover up marks made from popping old zits. They contain many vital nutrients including amino acids and vitamins that your face needs to heal the scars and fight the bacteria.
Strawberries and Honey
You’re going to love this one. You may even end up with a nice snack while curing your facial blemishes. See, other than just tasting great, strawberries contain a compound called salicyclic acid (which is also sold separately as a proven acne reducer). This acid stimulates the outer layer of your skin and helps unclog pores that may have dirt or bacteria in them. It also nourishes new skin cells.
Honey also has many positive effects on your skin as well as the rest of your body. Using local honey is best as it will contain substances relative to your environment. Many times, local honey can be purchased from a farmers market for less than $10, which is amazingly cheap representing the astounding benefits you will receive from it.
First off, rinse your face with some warm water to ensure that there is no dirt on the outer layer. Second, wash the strawberries and blend them in a blender to create a tasty paste. Add about three spoonfuls of honey to the mixture and apply to your skin evenly. Let this fresh cure to the pimples on your face sit for about half an hour. Rinse off the paste with a shower, and you can even it some of the tasty mixture that was left over!
Some people hate the acidity of tomatoes and will skip right over this technique. However, if you can pull it together to place some tomato slices on your face, you can reap the reward of drastically reducing your acne. Tomatoes contain lycopene that protects the skin and contains chemicals that reduce the effect of again. Simply slice up a tomato and place the slices on your face for about 10 minutes. Another technique involves blending tomatoes and applying the juice only to your face. Be careful not to allow any juice to get in your eyes as it will cause pain. Tomatoes have been used in my family to get rid of zits overnight for at least a decade. Not only will they heal a pimple, the acidity will temporarily help your face’s pH levels.
Aloe Vera is a well known health herb that can cure many ailments, including pimples. If you have an aloe Vera plant in your house, simple break off a leave and collect some of the juice that runs down. Apply this juice to your face and leave it overnight if you can. If you don’t like the idea of sleeping with stuff on your face, let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Another solution to zits involves just using aloe Vera cream. Although this cream usually contains other compounds and chemicals, it will definitely help reduce your overall acne.
You can get rid of pimples fast using a cold compress or some ice. Do not apply the ice directly to your skin or it may damage your skin cells. Wrap a zip lock bag of ice or some frozen vegetables in a thin towel and place this cold bag on your face. The lack of heat will cause the blood vessels near the pimple to contract, getting rid of the redness almost immediately.
Although most people find this method to be a bit painful, it has been proven to seriously remove zits from your face in under 24 hours. The fluorine and other main chemicals in your toothpaste kill the bacteria that causes your face to swell up. Right before you head to bed, place a dab of toothpaste (it can’t be the gel kind) on your finger and apply to your zit so that you can’t see your zit through the paste. Allow it to dry 5 minutes before laying down, and place a towel over your pillow to prevent the toothpaste from smearing on it. Note that many people say that dabbing some toothpaste onto a zit can cause a burning sensation, so be ready to wipe it off. Just remember that a couple minutes of pain from this fluorine-based compound can clean up your face super fast.

If none of these methods work, you can consider trying to hide a zit with concealer or makeup. Start by taking a warm shower and using a mild soap to cleanse your face. Try to stick to cleanser products that don’t contain alcohol. After washing gently, pat your face dry with a towel. This is important, as rubbing or wiping your face with a towel will spread the acne-causing bacteria and will spread your pimples. Pat lightly with a clean, fresh towel immediately after a shower. The next step is to moisturize with a soothing lotion. Focus on dry spots, and apply ice cubes to your red pimples help hide them.
Now it is time to apply a concealer. Make sure there is adequate lighting in your room to better focus on the spots that need attention. Pick a yellow or green primer to balance the red-pink of the irritation. Use a brush to apply a small amount of primer over the pimple; a cotton swab can be used for better application. Now apply a concealer that matches your skin tone. Make sure to not overdo it, only apply as much as you need to fully cover the zit. Some find it best to go up and down instead of left and right for best results. Rub around the spot with your finger for a bit to help blend in the colors and make it look nicer and inconspicuous. If needed, you may apply a powder. This will ensure that your makeup stays on all day long and won’t rub off. Use a puff and press down gently making sure not to rub or smear your newly acquired zit hider.
