Have you ever woken up in the morning just to find a big red pimple smiling wickedly on your nose? If you answered yes, you very well know how extremely frustrating this could be. Especially when everyone from your mom to the man on the road keeps asking you what happened to your nose!
Even if your face is acne clear, a pimple on the nose will be very noticeable indeed. Nose pimples are a big challenge for most acne sufferers and is also a very painful experience. So what would be the quickest way to get rid of a nose pimple?
We all know that acne as such does not have any quick remedies. Acne treatment is a complete process and should be followed to get an acne clear skin. But a nose pimple is really an alarming situation.
The following top 5 tips will help you to get rid of nose pimples:
o Never ever touch the nose pimple. Sometimes you just can’t stop yourself from touching it, since it’s so annoying, but remember touching won’t help. Touching and squeezing will only leave scars on your nose and as you know scars can last a lifetime but the pimple might just go away in a few days. Also constant touching will just spread the bacteria to other parts of your skin and stop you from being acne clear.
o Wash the nose pimple with a gentle cleanser two times a day. This will help remove any dirt and oil which could worsen the pimple if not cleaned regularly.
o If the pimple is visibly too red and looks inflamed, try dabbing a little visine eye drops on it. Many acne sufferers have got relief from inflammation by applying a little visine to their pimple. Remember you don’t need too much, just a little to reduce the redness. Always check for allergies to any ingredients before applying to the face.
o Apply some ice to the nose pimple to help reduce the swelling. If possible apply the ice every 30 minutes and hold it for 2 minutes. This will help in reducing the swelling.
o Apply a little lemon juice on the nose pimple. The acidic nature of lemon helps in cleaning and drying the pimple. Just apply a little juice on the pimple and leave it for a few minutes. Wash it off with a cleanser.
