- Apply eyedrops on the affected area.
- Get an aspirin and crush it. Add water to turn into a paste. Apply it on the acne and let it sit for awhile.
- Apply toothpaste on the acne before you sleep. This should ease the swelling overnight.
- Wrap some ice cubes in clean towel. Apply it on the swollen area for a few minutes.
- You can make up to reduce acne redness. Apply the affected area with a green tinted concealer. This should make the color of the redness less noticeable. One last step is buff the inflamed area with a mineral powder makeup, making it closely resembles the original skin tone.
I have learned that you can avoid redness if you treat your pimples early. Acne spot treatments that use heat is ideal if your skin doesn't go well with topical creams. However, each person will see different results. What I use may not work for you. So, it is better for you to try what works for you.
When looking for a good acne clearing device, don't be conned into quick fixes. Look for one that can relieve the pain quickly and address the root cause which is the P. acnes bacteria.
