When you have a raging pimple everyone has tried a variety of methods to remove it. You have a party that night which it MUST not be present for, what do you do? If you don't have the time to deal with the more patient methods I have developed a method which ideally you should try at least a few hours before applying makeup. Firstly, apply a drying antiseptic, I usually do a strong TCP to water ratio (this is usually 50-50 but I tend to make it somewhere between 75-25 to 90-10 depending on your skin type). This cleans the surface and reduces the chances of irritation to the area. I then proceed to do the unspeakable and POP the pimple. Usually this is said to be a no go but bare with me. Then go forward to clean it with your high concentration of antiseptic and leave it. Voila. This should be cleaned and healing in time for your party.

What You'll Need

  • Antiseptic
  • Tissue (to clean off any gross stuff that comes out)
  • A popping tool ideally if you have one, otherwise work with what you've got ie hands

What You'll Do

  • Clean surface
  • Antiseptic
  • Pop it!
