Hemorrhoid cream restricts blood flow to the area of the skin where the cream is applied, which reduces skin redness. Hemorrhoid cream also acts as an anti-inflammatory, and when applied to blemishes, the cream will reduce swelling and the appearance of the pimple. When the size of the pimple decreases, the redness will decrease also. You can use hemorrhoid cream on most types of redness, but its strength is reducing swelling on pimple-related redness.
Things You'll Need
- Hemorrhoid cream
Clean and completely dry your face. Make sure all makeup is removed from the areas where you intend to apply the hemorrhoid cream.
Put a dab of hemorrhoid cream on your finger and apply a small amount to the red area of your face. Only apply the cream to the red area of your face.
Rub the hemorrhoid cream into the red area. Continue to rub the cream in until you can no longer see the white cream, or you can leave some cream to be seen if you are applying it at night.
Tips & Warnings
- Avoid spreading the cream on the gentle skin around the eye. Do not use hemorrhoid cream as a substitution for acne medicine. Dispose of a bit of the cream from the end of the tube if the cream has been used on hemorroids. Make sure the hemorrhoid cream has not passed its expiration date.
