If you choose an over-the-counter product, you should know what ingredients you must look for. The creams that contain benzoyl peroxide have antibacterial and exfoliating properties, so they will help you stop the inflammation, reduce the swelling and unblock the pores. Be careful when you use products containing benzoyl peroxide as it may bleach the clothes.
Salicylic acid and products that contain it also stimulate the exfoliation process and make it easier fro the pores to get unclogged and for the pus to come out. Salicylic acid is quite harsh on the skin so make sure you moisturize the treated area in order to avoid dry skin patches.
Some creams designed for people suffering from acne contain sulphur, which cleanses the skin, unblocks the pores and disinfects the pimple area. Bear in mind that products containing sulphur usually carry an unpleasant odor.
In case blind pimples keep coming back regardless of your appropriate facial care routine, you might want to see the doctor who will prescribe you some antibiotics or creams with a high level of retinoids. Remember that those creams make your skin photo-sensitive, which means that you should avoid sun exposure during the treatment and two weeks after you finish it. Otherwise, you will swap the blind pimples for dark patches on tour face.
