Updated on March 6, 2011

Irrespective of whether you’re a teen or an adult vulnerable to acne, you'll find nothing more serious than a horrible spot that usually seems to show up just before a pretty important meeting, or if you’re going on a night out. If you can’t prevent zits, what you really want to learn is, how to get rid of spots fast, in order to get on with living your life.

We’re about to show you how to get rid of spots fast, by using a handful of things you will be able to find in the average home. You’re going to want to get some tooth paste, honey, aspirin, and for those who have it, Witch Hazel and/or Tea Tree oil as well as eye drops for red eyes.

1 - Crush an aspirin in a saucer and mix in a couple of drops of water. Soak a cotton bud in the mixture and hold this on the pimple for approximately 30 seconds. This ought to help lessen the spot’s redness to make it less visible.

2 - Toothpaste can be a very effective way to stop spots from wrecking your plans. Apply a pea size quantity of the standard toothpaste (not the gel type) on the pimple at bedtime. The next morning, the toothpaste will have reduced the spot by drying it out.

3 - Honey, in particular Manuka honey is yet another simple method to prevent pimples. Honey possesses natural anti bacterial qualities, so spreading a small amount on a plaster and putting it on the pimple while you are sleeping can help to reduce it.

4 - Eye drops, like the type you use for reducing bloodshot eyes, can also be excellent for dealing with spots, calming a fresh pimple down so it is less noticeable. These kinds of eye drops work by constricting the blood vessel within the eye to reduce redness, and they are capable of doing exactly the same for a nasty pimple.

5 - Witch Hazel & Tea Tree oil have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, so if you are susceptible to spots, keep some in the house and dab some on when a spot appears to stop it in its tracks.
