Will a warm water compress help my pimples form a head?

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I got a few new zits today and I would like them gone by the end of the weekend. They haven't formed whiteheads yet. At the moment they just look like red bumps. If I put a little of my cleansing soap on a cotton ball with warm water and applied it to my new spots, would they form whiteheads faster?

In my experience they have not just due to applying warm water. I find the combination of gently washing, using warm water and just being patient, they will form a head in a few days.

For me the warm water doesn't seem to do that much and if I use it too much or too hot of water it ends up drying my skin too much. Try dotting extra BP just on the spots at night before bed, like just a small glob right on top (it should be visible and dry in a visible white spot, if that makes sense). For me this can expediate the process and prevent the blemish from getting huge and out of hand, thus getting rid of it faster. I have very good luck with this and I hope it helps you too!

Peace ;)
