During the hectic pre-holiday preparations, facial skin can present us with an unpleasant surprise – pimples, redness or inflammation. This little problem should not ruin your holiday. After all, there is a quick solution of it.
A pimple on the face is an unpleasant situation, but not a critical one. There are some simple means that will help to minimize acne, remove redness, as if drying the pimple.
Apply it on the problem spot and leave for at least 10 minutes. The pimple will get smaller.
Honey produces the same drying effect as toothpaste.
Pimples with a white center should be cleaned with a warm compress
Take a clean cloth, soak it in hot water (as hot as your facial skin can stand) and attach it to the problematic section. As the compress gets cooler, heat it in hot water again. Do not squeeze the pimple! Heat will help acne “open” faster; white pus will come out, and redness will disappear.
Salicylic acid is another way to treat acne quickly. Any product with salicylic acid will be helpful. You can also crush the pill of salicylic acid and treat the pimple. Aspirin is a form of salicylic acid, so you can use aspirin pills. Salicylic acid is effective for white acne. And if there is a red pimple, the means with benzoyl peroxide will be the best to cope with it.
Cortisone treats acne. Cortisone is available in pills or powder. If you have this drug in the medicine cabinet, crush it into a powder and mix with a little water, apply the pulp to the problem area.
A pimple on the eyelid is a complicated case. If it has just appeared, do not touch it. You can use special therapeutic ointment.
The main advice from dermatologists is not to squeeze pimples. This can lead to scarring, so choose what is more important for you: a pimple or a scar for several years.
After the holidays, skin problems will not be less evident than usual. And if you need to quickly bring yourself in order, take advantage of our tips:
Acne SOS Tips
Holidays are a stressful time when we do not pay as much attention to the skin as on ordinary days. As a result, there is inflammation and pimples. To restore the smooth appearance of the skin, you will need to start everything from the very beginning. Clean the pores using chemical peeling (the products with beta hydracids have anti-inflammatory properties and reduce redness).
Alcohol, salty products and sleepless nights are the main causes of puffy eyes and dark circles under the eyes. Start with a gentle detox: limit the intake of salt, coffee, and canned goods. Drink plenty of water and start a diet based on a large number of vegetables and fruit, unsalted nuts, and salmon.
Cosmetic treatment is also available. The areas of skin under the eyes should be thoroughly wetted. To do this, use a serum or a moisturizer with antioxidants. Well-hydrated skin does not retain fluid; it looks less wrinkled and tired. In the morning, gently massage the swollen areas around the eyes with your fingers, reducing the swelling.
Sweets, stress, and alcohol make the skin wrinkled. After the holidays, you need to move to a “clean” diet as soon as possible (no salt, sugar, alcohol) and drink plenty of water. At night, use a cream with retinol.
