Period zits can be sooo annoying!
Those big fat pimples that religiously appear on your face can be a menace especially when one pops up in an inconvenient spot, like the tip of your nose. It also doesn’t help that it’s incredibly painful. Luckily, you don’t have to wait out them out any longer.
Life is the art of adjustment. You don’t need a spot on acne clear, you can use hot water or ice to kill your zit.
Here are four ways how:
1. Put a few Q-tips(earbuds) in super-hot water then carefully it on the tip of the pimple. This will burst the zit, sterilize it and drain the pus without having to manipulate it.
2. Alternatively, soak a towel in hot water and dab it on the pimple a few times a day. This will help it ripen and then use two Q-tips to squeeze out the pus. Avoid using your bare fingers, you don’t want to infect the pimple and leave a scar.
3. You can also dab ice on the zit as a cold compressor to help reduce the inflammation in its early stages.
4. If you can’t handle the ice, then place a spoon (this can spoil your fridge) or a used tea bag in the freezer for a while and then gently press on the pimple until the skin goes numb. Watch out for frostbites.
If you have access to Visine original eye drops, just dab a few drops on the zit to reduce the redness.
Dermatologist, Mona Gohora dished this out on women’s health as her personal go-to zit solution.
You can find it in most pharmacies and it retails at Sh1000 though it really doesn’t make sense to get the whole bottle for just a zit.
Zits are common and they usually appear due to hormones, a change in diet and clogged pores. You can reduce the chances of getting one my sticking to a healthy diet and good skin care routine.
