Blog Request: The awful face mountains... aka The Pimple

Hey Nice Girls!

Blog requests are my favorite type of posts to write because I am able to write about the topics you are interested in reading about. A few days ago I received a question about what I do when I wake up in the morning look in the mirror and see a nice, new red pimple on my face.

There is nothing worse than getting a new pimple. Like any girl I freak out, become irritated and hope it will go away. I try to take care of the issue without causing too much damage to my face. I try to avoid extracting because it causes the pimple to become irritated and red. If I am going somewhere I will try and cover it up with concealer and then apply my foundation. I have discovered the best way to get rid of the pimple the quickest is to let it play its course. Don't touch it, don't pop it.... leave it alone!!

Although it is hard to get rid of a new pimple and cover it up for a big event try these few tips as they may help you:

**If you are looking to get rid of the redness try using Clear Eyes for Red Eyes eye drops. I know this seems funny, but it you leave the eye drop on the area for about 10 minutes the redness will decrease.

**You can also try placing a small amount of face mask to the area and covering it with a band aid over night. When I used Proactive I would use the Proactive mask, cover it with a small band aid and go to sleep. The next day the pimple was either gone or the size and redness had decreased dramatically.

There are many ways you can proactively avoid pimples:
- Wash your face every morning
- Wash your makeup off at night
- Clean your makeup brushes once a week
- Don't use your fingers to apply foundation. Try using a sponge.
- If you use sponges to apply makeup only use them once because they will store bacteria.
- Try to touch your face as little as possible during the day.
