Since then, I only have a few small pimples each month or so, if that. Instead of a few big ones each day – but I’m still the best in the world at pimple popping.
For this post though, I’m going to tell you how to get rid of an individual pimple overnight.
Lets get started,
Below I’m going to list the exact steps required to pop your pimple, and clear away the evidence as fast as possible.
A quick note before you begin – these are extremely detailed steps, but that’s because they work. So I strongly suggest you read every word.
Steps for Popping Pimples Within 11 Hours
First I’ll list what you’ll need before popping:
Clean Paper towels
Face wash containing salicylic acid (preferably 2%)
Oil-free moitsturizer (or non-comedogenic)
A few ice-cubes
Instructions: How to Get Rid of a Pimple Overnight
Step 1 - Pop the pimple
This is important because if you have dirt and bacteria on your hands then you’re just going to cause more pimples to form.
Also make sure the soap is antibacterial.
Rinse ALL of the soap off of your hands.
And make sure to dry them with a CLEAN paper towel – not a greasy bathroom hand towel or your shirt.
Dry them well because it will be hard to grip your skin while popping otherwise.
Step 2 - Pop the pimple
Squeeze everything out. Use a clean paper towel or tissue to gently remove anything that may have landed on your skin.
Step 3 - Wash your hands with soap and water again
Rinse well with water, but don’t dry them
Step 4 - Splash cold water onto your pimple
Step 5 - Face Wash
Slowly and gently - massage your face wash (salicylic acid cleanser) around the pimple for about 20 seconds or so, then squeeze it again to make sure all of the fluid comes out – this is called exfoliation.
Step 6 - Repeat
Rinse the area, and gently rub some more face wash on it for about 10 seconds. Then rinse fully. Don’t dry though.
Step 7 - Icing it
Gently rub an ice cube around the pimple for about 15-20 seconds. If you don't believe me, renown dermatologist, Dr. Audrey Kunin explains in this detailed article, why ice is crucial for acne.
Step 8 - Gently pat everything dry
Step 9 - Gently apply a small amount of moisturizer
Step 10 - Optional step
If you’re going to apply foundation, you can do it now, just wait at least 90 seconds for the moisturizer to dry before applying it.
Step 11 - Drink plenty of water (this will speed up the process)
Step 12 - Eat more vegetables
This one is the most important. Eat as many carrots or green vegetables as possible. I won’t explain why because it will take too long, and I know that you’re in a rush.
If you want to know what foods are the best to eat for acne sufferers, then you can read my previous post on the strongest acne-fighting foods.
A Quick Overview
Remember, the last step is the most important. If you want to know why it’s the most important, than you should read the post I wrote about my full story (mentioned in the beginning).
I would highly suggest reading my advice, because otherwise you’ll just keep fighting pimple after pimple. And It will only worsen.
Not to mention also, the only reason I wrote it is to help you and every other acne sufferer. My breakouts were much worse than just one pimple, but so are most peoples. The good news is that now you finally know how to get rid of a pimple overnight.
