Heal a Zit Fast!


upstyle for prom or wedding

You have a special event. Your hair looks


amazing but that nasty pimple on your chin is

not so amazing. In fact, it's terrible!



What should you do?


  DON'T SQUEEZE IT!   


Squeezing can cause 


redness and swelling that is impossible to 


cover! Here is what to do.


Clean it

First, wash the area with a gentle acne cleanser followed by a

soothing toner.


Reduce Swelling

Apply ice or a cold, wet chamomile tea bag 
for 5 -10

minute to reduce swelling and inflammation.


Spot Treat

Apply a salicylic spot treatment to the pimple such as Alba 

acne dote invisible treatment gel to kill bacteria and speed 

up the healing process. Or can use an aspirin to make

healing paste. Crush an aspirin, add a little water to 

make paste, apply it to the blemish, let it sit 10 -15 minutes. 

Rinse.


Some people like to use toothpaste. Apply it to pimple to 

help dry it up overnight.  Use a non-whitening toothpaste.  It 

will be less irritating.


Get the Red Out

Just before makeup application, a little Visine gets the red 

out!  Apply a few drops of Visine to a cotton swab.  Hold the 

swab on the blemish for a minute or two. Pat it dry with a 

tissue. 


Cover it up!


Apply concealer and foundation.  Be sure to 
use powder to 

set it. It can be tricky to get the right color makeup to cover a 

blemish.Have your makeup done by a makeup artist if 

you are afraid you won't be able to cover it. We know lots of 

makeup tricks!


Allergy Note: Allergic to ragweed? No chamomile!  
Allergic 

to aspirin? No salicylic acid!


See me at Styling Point in Media, Pa for makeup application 

for your special event or can come to you if you live in the 

Delaware County, Pa. area.


Have a Beautiful Day!
