    Oh no! Pimple Help!!!

    Advertisements
    I am so angry! The last time DB and I were together I had a huge red pimple right on my cheek that I get to remember whenever I look at pictures from that week. Now that I get to see him this weekend I have a new one about 1/2 an inch away from the scar from the old one. Yes it was that big.

    I'll take any and all remedies for getting rid of a pimple in...2 days.

    OK....go!
    this too shall pass...

    Toothpaste! put it on when you go to sleep. Make sure it's the past and not the gel. It will dry it out

    Go to Wal-Mart & buy a tube of zapzit its only about $4-$5 & its the only thing ive found to reduce & eliminate pimples in that short a period. Its clear when you rub it in so you can even wear it when you have make-up on. Just remember to put it on before you put your make-up on.

    dont pop it, that just makes it worse, IMO.
    clean your face really good.

    do you have any spot treatment for pimples? clean & clear has a good one that works for me, it makes a big difference. just make sure you only put it on the pimple and not all over your face because it'll dry your skin out.


    ETA: toothpaste has never worked for me. it may work for others though

    i did not pop it, I am totally against that. I'm have a spot treatment that is so-so. I was thinking of sitting out in the sun today to help dry it out?

    eh, i'm not sure if that would work or not.
    it may even make it worse if it's pretty hot outside & you end up sweating.
    ya know?

    what kind of spot treatment do you have?

    Yeah I know I hear mixed things about sitting out in the sun.

    I'm using Mario Badescu drying lotion. It's this weird over-priced pink stuff my aunt gave me that works great sometimes and does nothing other times. I might use that one from walmart one of the girls suggested

    Don't overdo it, or you will get a dry patchy spot! Stick with the Mario Badescu. I use Retin A to spot treat, but mine is Rx.

    Here are reviews for it, kind of mixed

    I worship individuals for their highest possibilities as individuals, and I loathe humanity, for its failures to live up to these possibilities.

    well i would say to use a spot treatment for the next two days.
    whether it's the one you already have or even going to purchase a new one.
    i think it's the quickest way to get rid of a pimple

    this is the one i use: http://www.cleanandclear.com/product...3&productpos=0

    Sulfur cream. Walgreens will have it. Trust me on this! I've been through two rounds of Accutane, so you know I've tried everything there is to try
