So in my last post I told you about the wonders of using oatmeal as a cleanser. Well now I`m going to let you in on another extremely inexpensive solution for acne.
Yup that`s right, the same thing you put on chicken-pox or mosquito bites is amazing at getting rid of pimples.
The reason why a pimple is red in the first place is because the skin is irritated and inflamed. Calamine lotion calms and soothes the skin. It is also drying so it will dry up that pimple in no time.
What I do is use a q-tip to apply it to just the pimple itself, at night before I go to bed. You have to be carefull to not apply it all over your face as it can be drying and cause some flakiness, but nothing that a washcloth cant scrub off. Now if you have very oily skin I cant see it being a problem to apply it all over your face but I wouldn`t leave it overnight.... 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse it off.
I swear by calamine lotion as a spot treatment now. I refuse to use anything else. Plus you cant beat the price. I purchased a bottle from Walmart for around $3 I think. I`ve barely made a dent in it and I use it every night. It will last for years!
Hope you found this helpful. Try it out and let me know how it works for you!
