Hello, my name is Courtney Gomez. I have been a makeup artist and a skin care specialist for upwards of five years, and today in this video, we will be discussing how to remove an acne cyst. You're going to need a Q-tip, tea tree oil and a glass of water that you can dilute the tea tree oil into. From there, you can use a spot treatment either a salicylic acid. I actually suggest a salicylic acid over benzoyl peroxide. I find that to be a little too drying. So, as I was saying, you're going to want to cleanse, tone, treat and moisturize when dealing with an acne cyst. Acne cysts are deep into the skin and you don't really see them but you can feel them and they do hurt. So, although you'll be tempted to, you're not going to want to get in there and push it out. That is only going to create skin breakage which is going to scar which is going to scab and is going to be more noticeable and it's going to actually add to the amount of time that the acne cyst is there because that's a deep irritation. So, every day after you've cleansed, some of the suggestions I have for treating as I said before is a salicylic acid. I have 2 percent here. It's not very drying especially when used with a moisturizer and although you'll be tempted to not want to use a moisturizer, always use a moisturizer. Another more natural way is with tea tree oil which works as an antiseptic or antibacterial. So I've diluted two or three drops of tea tree oil into this water, mix it with a Q-tip and then you can apply that to the affected area. After you let that dry, we'll just pretend we let that dry, is when you would go on to the moisturizing. You are always going to want to use a toner as well. Witch hazel is what I always suggest. I don't want you to use anything too drying like an astringent and then you're always going to want to end with a moisturizer. I know you'll feel tempted not to because you think moisture, oil, it's going to clog my pores more but your body could be creating this oil because of a lack of moisture on the skin and don't forget, do not pick, do not touch it. The least contact you can have with it with your hands, the quicker it will be resolved. Thank you for watching. Again, my name is Courtney Gomez, and this video discussed how to remove an acne cyst.
