Recently I stopped three pimples from coming up by this method...

I thought I'd share it with everyone. It's nothing new or complicated.

1] ice the pimple til the cube has melted away

[i just put the ice in a plastic baggie to avoid a watery mess]

[put a tiny bit of hydrocortisone cream after icing if it's really swollen]

2] take a little bit of uncoated aspirin mix with a little bit of water so it dissolves

[i just take a piece of aspirin in my fingers and put it under the faucet for a second and rub my fingers so the aspirin gets crushed up]

3] I put on a little bit of queen helene's mint julep mask over

You can either wash it off or leave it on at night.

If you have sensitive skin I would wash it off after 30-40 minutes.

The mint julep mask doesn't have to be used, aspirin is effective on it's own.

The pimples went away in 1-2 days when I know they were definitely potential big ones.

I'm not sure if this would work for everyone, but it helps me.

Also, if you pick any pimples putting on some aspirin immediately after helps to stop the redness and the swelling that occurs after picking.

I agree, probably not a good idea.

I'd suggest just doing the icing and putting on a bit of clay mask, grated apple [or tomato or strawberries..all things that help pimples]
