How to get rid of pimples?

I just like you all, will suffer with the occasional spot, blackhead, pimple and this will always be at the absolute worst time possible, always when you have a big date, event or when the sun is out and applying 12 layers of makeup to cover these up is not an option. I have called this article How to get rid of pimples? but it could be called How to get rid of spots?.


There are a few things that you can do to prevent pimples and I am sharing these with you first.

Sort out a good skincare routine

Cleanse – tone and moisturize twice a day

Use weekly treatments including masks, scrubs and peels

Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day water

Keep your make up brushes clean

Make sure your make up is in date

Keep your hands away from your face

If your hair is any way greasy then keep this off your face


This will help you to have great looking skin everyday but should a breakout happen, then the tips below on How to get rid of pimples? will help you.

Toothpaste, yes you see right, apply a dot of toothpaste after you have cleansed and leave on over night. this dried the spot out and those really angry red spots will vanish over night.

Place Tea Tree oil directly onto the spots with a q tip, repeat a few times throughout the day until the spots have vanished. Tea Tree oil fights the inflammation and battles the spot causing bacteria.

Use a green tea spray (make the tea with hot water, allow to cool and place in a spritz bottle) U can use this as a ten minute treatment or overnight. Green tea is high in antioxidants.

If you have access to little or nothing, apply ice, this will reduce any redness and make those red, large, sore pimples feel more comfortable. Wrap an ice cube in a piece of tissue, cloth etc and apply to the affected area, leave for 1-2 minutes and repeat as needed.

These are just a few of the ways I have treated my pimples over the years. Let me know if you have any addition tips and let me know of any of these work for you.


Do NOT pop your pimples.
