Discovering a nasty zit only a day or two before a big event can be disheartening. Luckily it is possible to quickly diminish even the largest zits if you remember the most important thing; DON'T PICK IT! Picking zits will make it harder to get rid of the zits fast because broken skin does not heal as easily as a zit. Use these easy to follow steps to get rid of zits fast.
Things You'll Need
- Topical Spot Treatment
Wash the skin really well using an astringent to slough off any dead skin cells that may be responsible for causing the zits.
Use an astringent after washing for deep zit cleaning to get rid of zits fast.
Hit the zits with a topical spot treatment ointment containing salicylic acid. This will help to get rid of zits fast when you have to take off for the day and do not have time to mess with it.
Hold the outside of a hot cup of tea or coffee to the zits to get rid of zits fast. Cups with drinkably hot liquid in them are hot enough to burn off zit causing bacteria without scolding the surrounding skin. Do this for a few minutes at least twice a day. More would not hurt to get rid of zits fast.
Crush up an aspirin and add a little water to the mush to make a paste. Apply the aspirin paste to the zits overnight to get rid of zits fast. Something about the aspirin reduces swelling, redness and even dries up the zit itself.
