Hot and Cold Therapy
Before you can remove the pus from the pimple, it has to for a point. In order to accelerate that process, you should apply a warm compress on the affected area. Soak a clean, cotton cloth in hot water and press it for 5 minutes against the pimple. This will speed up the blood circulation in this area and will make the pimple form the point faster, Repeat this four to five times a day or until the point becomes visible.
To make a warm compress, you can also use black or green tea bags. The tannins from the tea prevent the infections from spreading across the skin.
If it happens that more areas on your face are affected by blind pimples, you can either put a larger compress on the whole face, or use a facial sauna to improve the blood circulation in the whole face.
If you notice the pimple in its early stage or if it bothers you because it’s painful, then applying ice might be very helpful. Ice reduces the swelling and can make the pimple less visible. It also soothes the pain. Just wrap an ice cube in a cotton cloth and apply it on the affected area for 10 minutes. Repeat the process 4 times a day for best results. Ice will not do a great job on the more developed pimples. In those cases it is better to use the heat therapy described above.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a very popular ingredient of cleansing and antibacterial facial care products. It’s because tea tree oil had strong antiseptic properties. You can use it locally, on the affected skin or mix it with your regular facial products as a means of prevention against pimples and skin infections.
Remember that tea tree oil on its own is harsh on the skin so it always has to be diluted, even if you use it only on one, specific pimple. For one part of tea tree oil use nine parts of water. If you have a very sensitive skin, you can also mix tea tree oil with aloe vera gel. Apply the mixture with a cotton ball on the pimple and let it dry for 30 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water and finish off with a moisturiser.
You can also use a more diluted mixture (in 1 to 15 proportion) as a rinse for your skin to finish off the evening cleansing routine. Dip a cotton ball in the solution and wipe it all over your face. Leave it on for the night and wash your face as usual. Make sure you observe how your skin reacts to the rinse because it might turn our that you need to add another part of water or aloe vera gel to the mixture is it’s still too harsh for your sensitive skin.
Apple and Honey
Honey is known for its antibacterial and antiviral properties. It also helps rejuvenate the skin and nourish it. The best thing about using honey in your facial treatment is that you can apply it directly on your skin so it’s not a time-consuming process at all. Once you apply the honey, leave it on for 15-20 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. Make sure you finish off the treatment with a moisturiser. Choose only organic honey as the market is full of honey mixes that don’t contain only natural ingredients.
Apple mixed with honey will boost the rejuvenation effect as it has lifting properties and is recommended mostly for the skin lacking elasticity. Cut an apple in four pieces and remove the seeds. Blend it or mash it do that you get a smooth pulp. Add a tablespoon of organic honey and apply the mixture on the skin. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash it off with warm water, then rinse again with cold water. After just one treatment you will notice that the whole face is refreshed. For best results, repeat the treatment three times a week.
You can also apply the honey or apple and honey mix only locally, on the blind pimple. To boost the effect, repeat it 3 times a day until you see that the swelling is gone and the skin regained its natural colour.

If you don’t have sensitive skin and you’ve testes the treatment during the day, you can also leave the toothpaste on overnight. It will boost the results, but make sure you do it only once you have checked that there was no allergic reaction after the day treatment.
Lemon juice works like a natural astringent and helps dry out the blind pimples. It is very effective and has become a common ingredient of various facial care products.
