Acne Alert: How to Hide That Zit
So many pimples, so little time for them to heal. It doesn't matter whether you're 15 or 45, a bad blemish can pop up at any time. While you'd love to zap that zit, you may be left with the next best thing -- hiding the meddlesome mark. There are things you can do when the blemish rears its ugly head. The first thing you'll want to do is the dull the appearance. Apply toothpaste to said spot and let it sit overnight or for a few hours if you're pressed for time. For a more immediate fix, apply a few drops of Visine to the spot. This should alleviate some of the redness. There are plenty of homemade remedies that are said to eradicate pimples. Mash up a piece of garlic and apply it to the face, avoiding the eye area. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes before washing face with a warm cloth. Another effective mixture combines one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of lemon juice. Applying grated potatoes to the affected area can also cure pimples. One of the hottest new devices is the Zeno, a contraption that heats the area to draw out the blockage.
