You can also do this without spending any money, you should be able to find what you need in your home already so don't fear that this will be expensive!
Prevention!Obviously the best way to get rid of a pimple is not to get them in the first place! Well duh! everyone will get them once in a while but you can use a skin care routine that will actively prevent the recurrance of pimples.

How to get rid of Pimples Fast!

First check if your pimple has a head, it will appear to be white or black. It may be poking out of the skin or it may be just under the skin but visible.
If your pimple has a head, you will need to get a washcloth and soak it in hot water. Hold the cloth over your pimple for around 30 minutes. I like to lie back and put the flannel over my face to relax but you will need to keep soaking the cloth when it starts to cool and then reapply it to your pimple.After thirty minutes pat your skin dry and take a look at your pimple. It should look swollen now and this will make it very easy to pop. You must pop your pimple to get the head out. Be careful not to press down too hard as this will force the pimple and the bacteria back inside.Treat your open would with some benxoyl peroxide which will remove any bacteria and keep your pimple clean.You can also leave it a few hours and put a cold compress on it to bring down the swelling if you have a very large swollen wound.

If you have a pimple that has no head, you cant see any white or black forming yet you can treat it with an ice pack or hold an ice cube on it for 20 minutes. This treatment can be uncomfortable but its worth it if you want to clear your skin fast. Once you have done this, treat your pimple with some benzoyl peroxide as in the first method, it will help to treat the pimple as it begins to form. Repeat this method regularly every hour or every 2 hours to make sure that your pimple does not get any bigger. It can also help to reduce the swelling.

If you use these methods to treat your pimples you should see results in about 24 hours!
