Shushanik is always looking for ways to improve her skin and get rid of problems. She is sharing her findings with her readers.

Can I Squeeze The Pimple?

Never do it yourself! This can be done only by professional cosmetologist using sterile instruments. Doing this yourself exposes your skin to infection. This can cause a lot of problems, from scars to acne, and even septicemia which is very hard to cure.

Can I Get Rid Of Acne In a Few Hours?

There are numerous acne treatments in stores and prices are very different, from moderate to extremely expensive. All of them promise to get rid of acne and breakouts just in a few hours. I tried many of those treatments both cheap and expensive, and the truth is that none of them can save you from breakouts in such a short term. Of course, modern cosmetics helps with acne problem if you take care of the skin regularly and properly. But if pimple appeared, it takes some time before it will go away.

Natural Treatments That Might Help

1. Salicylic Acid

1-2% solution of salicylic acid dries, peels and provides antibacterial help. I use Paula's Choice SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid, because it gently and evenly removes built-up layers of dead skin, and also increases hydration, skin smoothness, and radiance. Basically, I was able to see the difference since the first time i used it. Wipe your face with the solution no more than twice a day. Since salicylic acid dries the skin, after you apply it, use moisturizer.

2. Chamomile Tea

Boil chamomile flowers and allow to stand for 20 minutes. After that do warm compresses on the face. Pay special attention to the forehead, nose and chin. Compresses should be done often, 5-6 times a day. You can also freeze the chamomile tea in ice molds and wipe the face with ice cubes every morning.

3. Parsley Juice or Aloe Juice

Wipe your face with either of them in the morning and at night. But don't combine both, better stick to one or the other.

4. Clay Mask

Dissolve cosmetic clay in warm boiled water to the consistency of sour cream. Apply to face and wait until clay dries (about 15 minutes). Such masks cleanse the skin, pull out dirt, dry acne, reduce redness and inflammation.

5. Honey Mask

Honey is a natural antiseptic, as it has many beneficial vitamins and minerals. All this has a positive effect on your skin. It becomes smooth and silky. Mix 50 g of honey, 50 g of olive oil and 1 egg yolk. Apply this mixture to your face, neck and decollete. In 20 minutes, rinse with warm water.

For positive effect, masks should be applied regularly, once or twice a week. But unfortunately it's impossible to solve acne problem by masks only. You should also pay attention to proper cleansing and nutrition.
