So we talked about how to prevent pimples here, but now lets talk about once it’s too late and you already have one. I feel like this is something everyone is embarrassed to talk about, but lets be honest- we all get them. And EVERYONE hates them.
First off, let me start off by admitting that I am the absolute worst at following my own advice and leaving it alone to heal by itself, so lets just sweep right over that tip bc I know y’all aren’t going to follow it either.
Here is how to actually get rid of it….
Dry the sucker out. I absolutely love this product. Stick a cue-tip in the bottle (don’t shake) the liquid will look like it’s separated, but that’s how it’s supposed to be. When you pull the cue-tip out you’ll have a pepto-bismal looking substance on the end. Apply that directly to the zit. It may burn for a few seconds but that will subside.
I usually do this before bed and let it dry out overnight. But you could also apply when you’re just sitting around the house. Side note- I also use it as a preventative measure the second I see any sort of blackhead coming. Literally…. if I feel like I’m about to get a breakout, I smother this all over the area and leave it on as long as I possibly can. I swear by it- it usually clears any zit I have within 2 days.
In the past I would completely destroy a breakout by continuously picking at it which made it 10000x worse (we’ve all been there). So I promise if you listen to one thing I say- GET THIS CLAY.
