So you had a breakout. Not cool. Here are three easy ways you can spot treat your blemish. By morning they will be a thing of the past! Or you can use these same methods as a spot treatment throughout the day. Make sure your skin is clean and apply any of the following solutions to your problem area.
Tea Tree oil has antibacterial properties that will help kill bacteria of pimples and prevent further outbreaks. It will also soothe the skin and quicken the healing process. I love Welcome To Life essential oils and First Aid is one of my favorites.
Directions: Add a touch of water to dilute the essential oil and use a cotton swab to apply to your blemish. Leave on over night or repeat throughout the day.
Lemon juice works as an astringent to dry out the pimple. It also works as a cleanser to help remove bacteria and dirt and speed up the healing process. Honey is anti-inflammatory and will calm redness and irritation. Lemon and honey are a magical combo.
Directions: Use a cotton swab or a cotton ball and soak up the juice mixture of two parts lemon one part honey and apply to your blemish. Leave overnight or spot treat throughout the day.
Aspirin is another anti-inflammatory and it will reduce swelling, unclog pores, and even soften your skin. It works wonders on more than your headache.
Directions: Crush an aspirin tablet and add just enough water to make it into a paste. With cotton swab, lightly coat the pimple with the aspirin paste. Cover the pimples entirely and let dry. Leave overnight or rinse after 15-20 minutes.
