Acne problem is common and is a top concern. It can also be attributed to factors like hormonal imbalance, genetics, improper skin care, poor diet, sun exposure and aging. Acne is easy to treat, but sometime you have to deal with painful pimples under the skin also called as blind acne or blind pimples. A blind pimple can be more painful than other exposed or on-surface pimples because it is deep within the skin, closer to the nerves. Worry not as here I am with some effective ways to treat pimples under the skin:
Garlic is a well-known remedy for acne or pimples that are about to erupt and are still under the skin surface and pain. Simply grate garlic and extract its juice. Apply the juice on the blind pimple before you go to bed. The pain should go away by next morning and it should heal in 1-2 days.
Take a washcloth and dip it in hot water. Place it on the area where you have a blind pimple until the cloth gets cold. Do this 1-2 times a day to see quick results.
Toothpaste is a well-known remedy for a blind pimple as well as active eruptions. Cleanse your face and apply toothpaste directly on the affected area. Let it dry and go to sleep. By next morning, the area should have gone flat.
TEA TREE OIL
Before you go to sleep, take a few drops of tea tree oil and dilute it with aloe vera gel or carrier oil and apply it on the affected are using a cotton ball. Let it dry completely and go to sleep. Wash off the next morning. This not only helps you get rid of a blind pimple, but also brightens your face.
Mix one teaspoon of Epsom salt in one-half cup of hot water until the salt dissolves completely. After it has reached room temperature or is lukewarm and applicable, take a small amount of the solution in a cotton ball by soaking it and apply it generously onto your blind pimple. Let it dry on the skin and go to sleep.
