Step 1: DO NOT TOUCH OR POP IT! LEAVE IT ALONE! it will only make your pimple more obvious and risk infection and scarring. It will disappear if you just leave it.
Step 2: Wash your hands several times before you touch your face
Step 3: Wash your face gently
Step 4: Pat your skin with a dry towel
Step 5: Apply salicylic acid topical cream on the pimple.
Tip of the day: I use Clinique acne solutions spot healing gel. This product contains 1% Salacylic acid. When ever I get a pimple, I first wash my face, then apply moisturizer, and then put a drop directly onto my pimple. Some people apply it all over their face just so they wont get any more pimple. However, it is not a good idea to do that because it is intended only to be used on individual blemishes. The gel is very effective at drying the blemish up and shrinking it, particularly if I use it over night. In general, I have been impressed by how quickly this product can dry up a zit. The blemish wonâ€™t disappear overnight necessarily, but it will probably be a lot easier to conceal in the morning. I even used it the night before one of my job interview, with pretty good success.
