Get Rid Of Acne Overnight
I decided to write this in hopes that it will help with easing your frustration on going through the internet, only to find the same ideas that actually don’t help with addressing the problem quickly! So I’m here to help in the best way possible so you can get rid of acne overnight.
The truth of the matter is that any acne or cyst that develops over days will require time for it to heal. But there are many things you can do to begin the healing process and to make its appearance less apparent or simply mask it using techniques from some top professional make up artists. You can get rid of acne overnight, or at least as quickly as humanly possible and hopefully with the least chemicals.
A little background on acne and pimples
Pimples and acne are formed when inflammation happens as a result of the clogging up of facial skin pores because of the build up of sebum (facial oils) and dirt. This little mixture then becomes a bacterial breeding ground. Sounds gross I know, but that’s exactly what happens.
In women, the inflammation occurs deeper in the lower layers of the skin which results in larger and often more painful cysts.
Apart from dirt and sebum build up that results in pimples and acne, one fact that most people miss out is that “dirt” can also be old dead skin cells that have not been removed. Exfoliating the skin using gentle scrub once or twice a week goes a long way in keeping your skin healthy and clean.
When your pores remain clean, that’s when pimples do not have a chance to break out.
It’s in your DNA
The amount of sebum produced by your body is highly dependent on your family genetics. You would notice that some families tend to have more oily skins than others. Of course having oily skin could also be due to dietary factors, but by and large the DNA of a person dictates oil production.
Immediate steps you can take to get rid of acne overnight
Here are the most effective measures you can take in event of a pimple or breakout that would help greatly in making your pimples “disappear”, or at least less visible.
Clean your face thoroughly
Remove the excess facial oils on the surface of your skin thoroughly using a deep cleanser that won’t irritate your skin. This helps clear away surface impurities, dead skin cells, and other contaminants that keep your skin from healing.
Cortisone Injections from your dermatologist of skin doctor
There are instances when you have to appear publicly at your best and a swollen cyst wouldn’t make for good presentation. this is where you might consider spending the money for a proven professional who can administer cortisone injections directly to the area of swelling. This is one of the most powerful solutions out there that reduces visible inflammation within hours.
Your skin specialist or skin doctor will typically inject a diluted amount of cortisone into the pimple to kill the bacteria and to reduce the inflammation and redness of the area. Is it painful? Not really because they use extremely fine gauge needles for this operation and it does bring relief to the area considerably quickly.
The swelling actually subsides and redness dissipates within hours of treatment, so this might be the best bet.
This is a much cheaper alternative to the suggestion above because, cortisone is cortisone after all and applying hydrocortisone cream topically to the area will mean that the skin will take time for to absorb its active ingredients for it to take effect. If your pimple is swollen and red, apply a little hydrocort cream on it every few hours and it can reduce its size and redness overnight.
Apply a drop directly on the pimple and avoid rubbing it off in your sleep, if that’s possible.
It’s good to avoid using hydrocortisone cream on a regular basis as it is known to reduce skin thickness over time which would make your skin more susceptible to future breakouts.
Benzoyl Peroxide and other spot treatments
Available over the counter at the local drugstore, you can find a racks of spot treatments which are usually more concentrated forms of benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid and salicylic acid. They are actually highly effective topical treatments and dry up the pimple.
Apply the solution of your choice in a small amount only on the area affected by the pimple. I stress that you only want to use a tiny amount because these chemicals if used repeatedly in larger amounts can severely dry your skin.
Available over-the-counter but also available in your own medicine box. Aspirin contains salicylic acid and you can access it by simply crushing a tablet and add a tiny bit of water to form a paste and then apply it on the affected area and allow it to sit and dry.
Leave it overnight and wash it off. Hopefully, with the overnight rest and pimple inflammation and redness being dealt with, you will rise with less of a pimple to worry about.
Tea Tree Oil gel
Before you attempt to use Tea Tree Oil, be sure to test a small portion on another area of your like your wrists. Many people have sworn to get excellent results with tea tree oil gels with their last minute spot treatments.
But if you’re like me, then Tea Tree oil will make your skin red and inflamed. So it’s always a good practice to test new products on less visible areas of your body before putting it on your face to test for possible negative reactions.
If you haven’t heard of colloidal silver, it is simply microscopic silver particles and ions suspended and dissolved water. Colloidal silver is high effective in killing bacteria and remains effective on surfaces to continue its amazing bacteria-inhibiting action.
Due to its extremely tiny size, it can be absorbed into the skin. Apply colloidal silver gels or a spray on solution of it onto your skin and let it be absorbed into your skin to kill off the source of your inflamed pimple.
You may purchase colloidal silver from online store or even make your own as described in my other post: Colloidal Silver Do’s and Dont’s
After you treat the pimples and acne, it’s time to even out the color of the blemish so you effectively “get rid of it” in way that no one notices. All the treatments we’ve mentioned so far actually aid in the reduction of the pimple and zit size, which makes concealment of the pimple easier. It’s much harder to conceal a bump than a flat and slightly discolored area.
Pick up a concealer that best matches your skin tone and gently dab it with your finger then let it oxidise into a natural layer which effectively masks any presence of a blemish.
It’s probably a good idea to avoid make up where possible so you don’t add more possible contaminants to the area which you want to heal, so use it at your own discretion and if the situation calls for it!
