Listen to Aunt Lori and take out the red
Visine, which you might know purely as an eye drop medication for redness, is said to work like a dream on unsightly pimples. By working to constrict blood vessels (just for a little while), the redness goes down and will subside for a little bit. Soak a cotton ball with visine and apply to the pimple for a minute or so. Then apply green concealer to balance out the redness of your pimples. Apply it directly to your blemish and then apply an oil-free foundation that matches your skin tone.
It's tempting, but popping or squeezing a pimple won't necessarily get rid of the problem. Squeezing can push bacteria and pus deeper into the skin, which might cause more swelling and redness. Squeezing also can lead to scabs and might leave you with permanent pits or scars. To avoid transferring bacteria from your hands to your face, wash your hands with soap and water.
