Pimples are a pain. They get red, puffy, and can cause a big mess on your face. Every teen and tween girl gets them, so it’s not just you. And you know what the best part is? Every teen and tween girl grows out of them. When you get older, you will get less and less zits. Your face will clear up and you will only get occasional pimples. But until they clear up, I have some tips and tricks for you to hide and erase pimples! Are you ready? Just keep scrolling.
Easier said than done. Trust me, I know. It can be so tempting to pop a juicy pimple or blackhead. But please resist. Unless the pimple has grown so large that it has formed a big whitehead on top of a large red lump, do not squeeze them. When you squeeze a pimple it will send part of the puss shooting out, and the other part shooting under your skin. The part that is shot under your skin will slowly work it’s way up and cause another pimple. That is how breakouts happen.
Shrinking is the best way to get rid of a pimple. What I mean by shrinking is using different techniques to make the pimple dry out. The easiest way to shrink a pimple is by holding an ice cube against the pimple for a few minutes before you go to bed. When you wake up the pimple should be reduced. But if you have a pimple or a breakout that is really stubborn, you might want to consider getting a pimple cream. I recommend getting a high quality cream so that it doesn’t cause skin irritation.
Pimples can seem so embarrassing. They stick out and are a major pain. If you are allowed to wear makeup, put a little bit of green eye shadow on each pimple, then apply your makeup as normal. As weird as that seems, it works! Just apply a very little amount of green eye shadow, not a huge dab.
Use my method of “Resist, Shrink, Cover” every time you have a large pimples or a breakout. Come back next week to hear what A has to say about health and beauty!
