Popped a Pimple? Now How to Get Rid of The Red Weld Left Behind #skin_care
After taking a very deep breath :) go immediately to your kitchen and get a cube of ice. Use circular motions to very gently rub around the blemish for about 3 minutes. Wipe gently, then apply a small amount of any acne medicine like Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicylic Acid, and rub in very gently. After it's mostly absorbed, apply a glob of clay mask. Wash this off with cool water after 15 or 20 minutes.
Repeat this process for the next few nights until the blemish starts to become flatter and smaller. At that point, you must leave it alone. To prevent a "dark mark" it is imperative that you use sunscreen every day no matter what the weather because sun exposure makes dark marks darker !! You can also use an antioxidant serum with vitamin C to prevent darkening and promote healing.
Hope this helps !
