Treating Pimples Naturally

Getting Painful Pimples

For something so small, pimples can pack quite the punch on a person, whether it's  physically or emotionally. The pain is often intensified if we dare to pop it which may or may not be successful. Even the aftermath of popping a pimple is ugly as it invites scabs and scars. The reason pimples sometimes hurt is because the pore has become infected due to the collect of oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. This causes the body to fight back to kill the infection, wrapping the infected pore in a secluded bubble where inflammation takes place. The level of pain also depends how close the area is pushed against a nerve. It helps to implement a routine to reduce to eliminate the appearance of acne, but should the enemy decide to appear, there are a few things you can do to get rid of it quick while easing the pain.

      1. One of the most helpful, and immediate, ways to relieve the pain to apply ice to the area. It's best to apply to the area for five minutes on and off for no more than 30 minutes.

      2. Typically, painful pimples do not head a head and they are embedded deep within the skin so drawing it up to the surface by applying a heat cloth can also be beneficial (other than the clay mask). As with the ice, apply it for 5 minutes on and off up to half an hour.

      3. The cooling sensation of peppermint and tea tree oil can also ease the pain as it heals the pimple by cleansing the area while drying it out. Remember to dilute the oil. It may be wash off or left over night.

      4. Clay masks have ability to draw out toxins and impurities from the skin and speed up the healing process. It is best to keep apply them to the spot for no more than 15-30 minutes.

As a side note, if you notice a pimple is especially deep, hard, and sore to the touch, you may be experiencing Cystic Acne. This form often requires alternative methods to get rid of it for good.
