Get Control of an Acne Breakout in 5 Steps

June 01, 2015 2 min read

It could be hormones or sweating through a long Sunday run or that new sunscreen, but even the clearest of complexions occasionally wakes to find a breakout. You have to act fast, but there are options for getting through it quickly. Attack the redness. To reduce the redness around a pimple, try one or more of the following: 1. Ice it. Ice slows circulation and swelling, just like on muscles after a run. 2. Visine. Eye drops contain tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride, which reduces redness. 3. Aspirin mask. Crush up aspirin and apply as a mask to the affected areas. Salicylic acid is an anti-inflammatory and will reduce swelling as well. If you have no other choice, drain. Sometimes it comes to this. And the safest way to drain a pimple is to hold a sterilized pin parallel to the head of it and then puncture it carefully. Press down on the skin around the hole, but do not press directly on it or you will end up with more swelling and potentially an ugly and painful infection. Apply alcohol to the area and let it dry. Dry it out. 1. Toothpaste contains silica which can help remove moisture from the area. 2. Tea tree oil and oil of oregano dabbed on with a cotton swab will dry it out overnight. 3. Any cream with sulfur or salicylic acid (like aspirin) will do the trick. Cover it up. Any drugstore will have several options for covering blemishes, but look for one that is 100% opaque. Murad makes an excellent one. If you're still fighting redness, consider a blemish stick with a bit of green in it to cover. Be proactive against future breakouts. Get into a good skincare routine and stick to it. Know your environmental  triggers and have a skincare tool kit on hand with some of the things listed above that work for you in case you do wake up to a flare-up. And drink your water! Hydration is the key to many skin woes in all seasons. What are some of the ways you've got rid of unwanted acne?
