5 Home Remedies For Pimples


How To Get Rid Of Pimples Fast



Pimples are a common problem that people of all ages can face. When someone has a breakout, they may want to know how to get rid of their pimples fast.

If you're looking for a strategy to make an acne flare-up calm down this second, we've got you. We talked to top acne specialist to find out exactly what to do when acne strikes and you're in a major hurry to get rid of it.

Here are 5 remedies that have been proven to get rid of pimples fast.

1. Dab on a little tea tree oil

Tea tree oil clears up all sorts of skin stuff — like insect bites, athlete's foot, and minor burns — and it can help zap acne, too.

Just dab some on a cotton swab and apply it directly to the pimple. "Dilute it at first, because some people are too sensitive to use it straight up," Dr. Bowe cautions.

2. Don’t Forget to Moisturize

Moisturizing may help improve the appearance of acne. Opt for a light moisturizer that is non-comedogenic so it won’t clog your pores which could possibly cause further breakouts. Products containing ceramides are a good choice as these add moisture and improve the skin’s protective barrier. It’s a particularly good idea to moisturize after a shower or washing your face.

3. Don’t overdry the affected area.

It’s not the chemical you use; it’s the amount you use, says Neal Schultz, M.D., a Manhattan derm. “People think if a little salicylic or glycolic acid is good, more is better," he says. "It gets to the point that the active ingredient irritates the skin, making it scaly and flaky and red.” To prevent irritation, try a lower concentration of the active ingredient once you’ve already broken out. Zeichner recommends checking your label for a concentration of benzoyl peroxide around 2.5%.

4. Get an Cortisone Injection

For those incredibly deep, painful zits and cystic breakouts that don't want to heal, a cortisone injection may be an option for you. During this quick procedure, a diluted cortisone is injected into the blemish.

Within just a few hours, the swelling will recede and the pain will go away. The breakout completely flattens out within 48 hours generally.

Large, deep blemishes usually don't respond well to other treatments, so if you absolutely need that breakout gone quickly a cortisone shot is your best bet. Ideally, you'll want to talk to your doctor about this option before you really need one.

5. Try a spot treatment or pimple patch

You've probably seen these emergency pimple treatments at the drugstore — usually an extra-strong solution of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or benzoyl peroxide. And yep, they can actually get rid of pimples overnight.

"Spot treatments can definitely be effective — they help to reduce inflammation and dry up the pimple," says Dr. Robin Evans, a dermatologist at SoCo Dermatology in Connecticut.

Pimple patches are also great for whiteheads: they're made out of hydrocolloid, which absorbs and sucks out the fluid in your pimple.

Ways To Make Sex Last Longer

How To Last Longer In Bed There are some things in life that, inevitably, don’t last a long time. But sex… should not be one of those things. Sure, there’s a time and place for a quickie, but for the most part, sex should be an experience that is enjoyed for as long as you and your partner want, preferably with no time limit. It’s not exactly news that it takes men less time than women to reach orgasm. And once it happens, sex is often over. After ejaculation, men go through a refractory period where they are unable to achieve another erection for a certain length of time (women have little to no refractory period). It’s normal and it varies, but it does have a way of interrupting intercourse. The only way to defer it is to delay orgasm, which is why we’ve put together a list of tips for lasting longer in bed. 1. Boost L-arginine Consumption Amino acids are the building blocks of protein.

That's why sex experts chimed in with more accurate insight about what guys  really want you to know  when the two of you climb into bed. Here are the top sex tips for women. 1. Do It With the Lights On You may be worried about what your husband thinks of your post-breast-feeding boobs, your C-section scar, or that at some point, he'll stop being attracted to you because you look a little — OK, a lot—different than you did on your wedding day. But men rarely notice your self-perceived flaws — they only become aware of them if you're preoccupied with them or go out of your way to cover up. "It's true, men are very visual," says relationship expert   Bernardo M
