Surefire Ways to Quickly Get Rid of Pimples Before That Big Event

By Alyssa Martinez @ItsMariaAlyssa

Pimples can pop up pretty much any time of the year and they are painful and ugly. While it's okay to ignore a solitary pimple when you are alone at home, but it can be a nightmare if it shows up before a date night or a big presentation. This is not your every day "5 ways to get rid of pimples" fluff post. We aim to leave you with two effective methods that can reduce the inflammation and redness just in the nick of time.

Surefire Ways to Quickly Get Rid of Pimples Before That Big Event

Get an Anti-Acne Shot From Your Dermatologist

You heard that right, there is a shot that can quickly control a serious acne situation. Models use it all the time before photo shoots. Schedule an appointment with your dermatologist and ask about intralesional corticosteroid injection. This is a simple procedure that involves injecting a corticosteroid shot into your pimple. Also known as the cyst shot, this reduces the inflammation within a few hours. However, considering this is an expensive step this should only be reserved for emergency zit removal before an important event.

Use 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Cream

Visiting a skin doctor for a simple pimple is not everyone's cup of tea. If you want a less-drastic approach then you need to seek the aid of a trusty benzoyl peroxide cream. If you have been struggling with acne for a while then chances are you have already heard of benzoyl peroxide. If not benzoyl peroxide creams are available over the counter that kills the bacteria behind the embarrassing zit and quickly controls the inflammation. If you are in a hurry to get rid of a pimple then choose high-strength 10% benzoyl peroxide creams instead of the milder 4% or 5%. These products reduce redness and size in as little as 4 hours. While it does not reduce the inflammation as fast as a corticosteroid injection, 10% Benzoyl Peroxide creams work really well as an everyday solution.

The above-two methods should help you quickly deal with a sudden acne conundrum. However, when it comes to combating acne, it's best to seek long-term solutions. The first step is to improve the diet and make sure your body is nourished from within. Adding things like fenugreek extract and wheatgrass supplements to your diet can boost overall health while keeping these pesky skin problems at bay. You should also avoid oily skincare products. These products can clog up your skin pores, thus creating favorable grounds for acne.
