Pharmacies offer an array of products that help reduce and eliminate blemishes. However, if you want to get rid of a blemish quickly, there are many options avaible to you using things you probably already have in your house. One item that can get rid of blemishes overnight is right on your bathroom counter.
Cleanse your skin thoroughly and pat dry. Use toner and moisturizer if that is your normal routine.
Apply a small dab of toothpaste to the pimple. You can also use calamine lotion.
Allow the toothpaste to remain on the pimple overnight. You can cover it with a small bandage or a piece of tape if needed.
In the morning rinse the toothpaste away with cool water.
Apply an ice cube to the pimple for a few minutes if there is any swelling remaining.
Apply a few drops of eye drops made to reduce redness if there is any redness remaining at the site of the pimple.
