We all have gone to bed with flawless skin just to wake up with a huge, painful pimple on the face. This is not surprising, as acne is the most common skin issue in Australia, affecting millions of people every year.
It's common to experience blackheads, whiteheads, and acne cystic. Acne cystic is the most severe type as it causes redness, inflammation, and pain.
The best way to avoid breakouts is to prevent them. You should always use non-comedogenic and oil-free cosmetics. Never touch pimples, as this causes more irritation making things worse. Besides, you can spread bacteria. Picking the spot usually increases recovery times.
Acne and pimples can't be healed overnight. Treatments require time to work. It may take a couple of days and even weeks for pimples to heal completely.
How much time it takes for a blemish to disappear depends on the size, severity, and treatment.
Luckily, overnight remedies can relieve pain, reduce the redness, inflammation, and pimple's size. Here are five outstanding solutions you can try immediately.
1. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a natural remedy that is famous for its ability to soothe skin. This ingredient is excellent for promoting quick healing. Apply aloe vera gel in the pimple and leave it overnight.
You can try HOLIKA HOLIKA Aloe 99% Soothing Gel. The HOLIKA HOLIKA Aloe 99% Soothing Gel has powerful healing effects as it's specifically formulated to soothe and moisturise skin. It's made with 99% fermented aloe leaf juice.
The HOLIKA HOLIKA Aloe 99% Soothing Gel relieves heated or inflamed skin. It's free from risky ingredients such as parabens, artificial colours, mineral oils, etc., so it's suitable for all skin types.
One of the quickest and effective methods to get rid of acne is to apply ice. If you're suffering from an inflamed pimple on the face that's causing pain, get an ice cube. Carefully cover the ice with a thin cloth and set it on the spot for approximately four minutes. Repeat this treatment throughout the day to reduce pain, swelling, and redness.
3. BB Cream
Even though applying BB cream isn't a remedy, it is excellent for covering pimples. Beauty experts recommend not to use heavy foundations as this can draw more attention to your blemishes.
Cover the zit with BB cream and apply concealer in the center of the pimple. Allow the concealer to dry for a minimum of ten minutes, then carefully blend the concealer into the skin.
Our favorite BB cream is MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42 which is available in five colours. This BB cream creates a flawless complexion because it's a unique 3-in-1 formula that can heal skin issues.
Combine it with THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer SPF 28 for covering acne perfectly.
4. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil attacks bacteria and reduces skin irritation. Research has proved that tea tree oil is an excellent way to treat acne as it fights two types of bacteria: P. acnes and S. epidermidis.
Besides, applying tea tree oil has many benefits for the skin as it moisturises while repairing skin tissue. Please note that you cannot use tea tree oil directly, you should dilute it. An excellent option is IUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum.
We recommend applying the Tea Tree Relief Serum in a cotton pad and applying it directly to pimples for treating acne. Repeat this process twice daily. You will see the best results if you use this serum daily as part of your skincare routine.
5. Acne Patches
If you're suffering from a colossal pimple and you want to help it heal quickly, it's wise to use acne patches. Even though spot treating works best for zits with a white head, it also helps to reduce inflammation and redness if you're experiencing deep cysts.
Acne patches such as ROHTO MENTHOLATUM Calendula Acne Anti-Bacteria Spot Dressing are designed to dry and heal your acne spots. They accelerate the process by absorbing the sebum and pus inside.
People with acne-prone skin should include skincare routine products such as the SOME BY MI Miracle series formulated to prevent breakouts. The SOME BY MI Miracle series consists of a cleanser, toner, serum, clear spot patches, and moisturiser. That's why the miracle series is perfect for those with oily and combination skin.
