is it a big whitehead? cuz if it is then you should take a long warm shower or bath to make sure the skin on your face is soft and moist and then gently prick it with a sterilized needle and g-e-n-t-l-y use two tissues to protect your fingers from your face and push inwards and out to get everything out. wash the area with facewash and water and tap dry. apply a lil tea tree oil and aloe gel when its all clean and go to sleep!

only do this if its really urgent and hurts to touch though!

do what starlite714 said. Just dont try squeezing it with your fingernails...it will make it worse!

If its not on the surface yet, then you can try using a heated cloth and holding it on the pimple. This sometimes helps to reduce it.

really? i thought that would make it more inflamed. they usually say hold a piece of ice. oh and to reduce redness TEMPORARILY you can apply visine red eye reducer on the spot. it really works!

what is the treatment for sun burn like brown skin-pls help & suggest home made madicin. - saroj
The only home made treatment I have heard of to lighten brown spots is lemon juice. You have to dliute it with water and apply it directly to the skin.

Hey that's awesome! The other choice is tea tree oil....if you apply it every hour....by the next day it will have shrunk atleast half the size. If you catch it in time....sometimes it's gone or nearly gone the next day.

Oh yea.....apple cider vinigar gets AWESOME results as a toner....but becareful if you skin is very sensitive, you also should dilute it too. It acts as a natural AHA too.....but again, dilute it and maybe spot treat....but I know many girls WHO swear by this as their toner.

HEY GUYS....take a look in the skincare forum....I posted threads on oily, dry, combo and normal skin....common sense, care, herbs and more.....go check it out and tell me what you think.

Actually, it will dry the area out...which kills the zit...but sometimes it's to much if your sensitive to it.

The other thing you could try is pure aloe (get the actual aloe plant and use the aloe gel from their). Aloe can sometime seem likes it's drying, when actually it's making your skin heal itself....so you may feel or seem like it's drying up....but it's promoting your skins healing properties.
