In dire need of getting rid of a zit overnight? Well – first of all – be sure that eliminating it completely in just a single night won’t be possible. However (yes – you can wipe the frown off your face), if it’s a small zit – you can bring it very close to oblivion, and if it’s a big zit (the kind that attracts every last bit of attention) – you can squeeze it down to infant size, then utilize the power of makeup to make it virtually disappear from the eyes of the public.

But first of all – let me mention this: yes, it’s true that a prominent zit isn’t something people don’t notice. They do. But it’s also true that they don’t care about it as much as you do. So what if you have a zit on your face? Everyone gets one now and then. It isn’t something you should be too worked up about – not the least because of the fact that if you worry too much – you’ll only make the condition worse. Stress is destructive on all levels – never forget that.

But don’t get discouraged. I’m not saying that just because you shouldn’t worry about the blemishes on your face – you shouldn’t try to get rid of them, either. Of course you should. Everyone loves a blemish-free look. And it’s very easy to accomplish. Just remember that with acne or without – you’re still beautiful, and always will be.

With that said, let’s get into a shortcut to wiping that annoying zit off your face…

The things you’ll need are:

  • A steam bath
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Fresh strawberry leaves
  • An oil-free cleanser
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Salt
  • A towel
  • Ice
  • A thin cloth
  • A few tablets of aspirin
  • An oil-free moisturizer.

Follow the steps as outlined below. Remember – this should be done an hour or so before going to bed:

Step-1: Steam your face using a steam bath for 10-15 minutes. You can make one at home using a moderately narrow-rimmed bowl filled with steaming water. Add a few fresh mint and strawberry leaves. Lean over and steam your face, holding a towel over your head to prevent the steam from escaping.

Step-2: Wash your face with a gentle, oil-free cleanser, preferably one containing a mild quantity of benzoyl peroxide and/or salicylic acid. Wash with warm water – not cold.

Step-3: Mix together some apple cider vinegar (preferably organic), some fresh lemon juice, and a little bit of salt (make sure the salt doesn’t dissolve completely – what you want is a slight grainy texture). Take a little of this mixture on your fingertip and very gently rub it on your pimple. Then soak a towel in the mixture and dab it on the bump. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water.

Step-4: Wrap an ice cube with a thin piece of cloth, and lightly press it on your pimple for a couple of minutes. Then pat dry your skin.
