4. Ointment

If you’re looking at chemist solutions , choose an ointment that contains  benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.Ensure that you follow the directions word to word because the duration of application differs from one ointment to another.

5. Injections

For those incredibly deep and painful breakouts, your best option is to call your dermatologist for a cortisone injection. A dilute cortisone is injected into the blemish which reduces the swelling in a matter of a day or two.Now that the area is flat , it can be easily covered up and hidden with the help of make-up.However ensure that you talk to your doctor before resorting to the technique of using these injections.

6. Hot water

In case the pimple has broken onto the surface of the skin , dabbing a cloth soaked in hot water for some time is a good idea.

Lemon juice and using rosehip seeds oil are some other few methods to clear acne and pimples of your face. In case of the rosehip seed oil , ensure that you massage the affected area with the oil atleast twice daily.
