Instructables
This is going over how to get rid of pimples, with simple supplies and no brand named treating medicine. This is very effective. I do not know if this will work on acne, becuase I have been using this and never have had real acne. If you like this rate it.
WHEN DOING this try not to touch your face very much.

Apply the rubbing alcohol on your pimples. Just dip the Q-tip in the rubbing alcohol and apply.
Note that rubbing alcohol is very strong, not liable for anything that can happen.

Step 3: Apply on the bandaid

Get another Q-tip and soak the end. Dab it on the white part of the bandaid.

Step 4: Wear the bandaid over the pimple

Now just put on the bandaid, making sure that the white space (middle part of band aid) is on the pimple. I put this on right before I go to bed so, and found this to be the best method.

Step 5: Air it out

Now just take it off and wash your face.

In order for you to get rid of acne forever,

1. You must learn what the cause of your acne is and how to control it.
2. The right and effective acne treatment means a treatment not only remove acne from the face but it also stops it from coming again.

I am following the programme "Acne No More" by Medical Researcher and Nutritionist Mike Walden and in it, he covers both these methods perfectly. I had tried a lot of methods to rid myself of my crippling acne. This program worked. My acne had cleared up and very quickly, I might add. My skin is now remarkably clear. Not a day goes by where I don't thank the lord that I found this powerful solution. It really works, I highly recommend you to check it out. www.getridofacne.best-online-solution.com

I used to do rubbing alcohol but it never cleans my forehead. I have some acne on my forehead on my hair line. I just use acne pads and they clean my cheeks, nose, forehead and hair line. Sometimes I have to scrub my face, but that stings when I go over it with the acne pads.

I really like your blog!Especially the way you have used to explain the treatment of avoiding pimples with the help of pictures!

I really appreciate your effort!

My sister is facing problem of acne and she is following this site Http://helpmyacne.net

I am for sure going to suggest this site to her

Thanx for your help !

No don't do it at all....it can give you a rash.....one time I put alcohol all over my face and then I put my acne treatment,I ended up with a rash over my chin :(
honey under a bandaid usually works for me.

i wouldn't recommend this tip to anyone (sorry, clamsrule!) because what you're doing is applying a very harsh astringent to your face that will work--but will inhibit the pore from healing. you may end up with bad scars :|

I agree. Deal with the source (infection), don't overkill the result (the pimple itself).

I posted this in response to the other RocketScientist2015 instructable, and finding out the information made a big difference to me, so I want to pass it on:
I happened to read a "skin care" book (a heavy duty one by some dermatologist or another) and came across, among all the dietary suggestions, this GEM of information:

Many commercial "anti-pimple" cremes are -inflammatory- agents because they act to dry out the natural oils of the skin and have astringent ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astringent ) properties that pucker the visible pimple site's size for a time, but irritate the skin to cause pimples to continue to return (especially cremes with sulfurous drying agents, as I recall).

The advice of the book was, DO NOT USE ASTRINGENT ANTI-PIMPLE CREAMS, they'll clear things up for the short term but make the pimples return long term. USE ANTI-BIOTIC CREME!
After this common sense revelation, I started using Neosporin instead of the anti-pimple creme that I had tried before, and the change over worked wonders, I really recommend it.
I've actually used neosporin on pimples before (i forgot why I tried it) and it seemed to work pretty well
where cud i buy neosporin? how much does it cost?
 You can just buy it at your local CVS store or Riteaid or Walgreen's. Also, check the health and beauty section at your local grocery store :) for a half ounce it is about  $6 for one whole ounce it costs about $9
If you live in the U.S you can get it at rite aid, or pretty much any drug store, as well as most grocery stores with a pharmacy/health department. Look for it near the band aidsbecause it is an antibiotic ointment
milk of magnesia works very well too.
now I wonder... perhaps a syringe I shall seek? jk

i am in middle school (7th grade) i see many people with acne, including me, an i need a cure, i just ordered some medicin stuff for it and it is working,but who wants to wear a bandaid on their head? that will just lead to more criticisum.
Thornburg (author)  naruto 7776 years ago
I dont wear them at school. I wear them when I go to bed.
But some people get ready in the morning or don't feel like doing it at night, and I read in a booklet that came with my medicine and it said that rubbing alcohol is harsh, and it ages your skin faster.
Thornburg (author)  naruto 7776 years ago
Does it say how much makes your skin age.
Hold on let me check
no it doesnt but this is what it does say.
Isopropyl rubbing alcohol can be cerry irritating to skin. it will strip the top layer of your skin and may actually cause the oil glands to secrete more oil to stay in balence. this can cause more blemishes and dry red skin, especally if you have sensitive skin. and so i dont get in trouble with the coppieright law or something, this came in a booklet that came with a proactive kit, the words that are bolded is the what the book said.
I know this is a huge delay, and hopefully you got over the problem by now, but... don't use the proactiv. It makes it better for 2 weeks, and then it comes back much worse
no but i got stronger medicin from the doc, people say its working well, but i dont think it is
Thornburg (author)  naruto 7776 years ago
Well I dont use this very much. I dont have any pimples, or acne, so I use this 1 every two weeks. I havent used this for atleast 3 weeks. I dont think that I am going to be looking like a granny at 50.

Scrub your face every day - might sound like a pain in the butt, but trust me - it's definitely worth it. There's a few people at my school who have so much acne, it looks like they scrape themselves with razor blades, being that most of their face is a bright pink color.
naruto 777 Bran6 years ago
i always scrub my face with warm water to open my pores and put the medicine i have on my head and i do this every night before i go to bed, and my acne isnt as bad as what you described, and bran are u a hunter?
Bran naruto 7776 years ago
Yes. 'Tis me and my deer in my avatar.
Naruto777, I don't know where you ordered your medicine from but the best thing to do is either schedule and appointment with your doctor or next time you are there for a checkup just mention that your acne is becoming a problem and he/she can prescribe some medication based on your age, health, and degree of acne. It really is best way to eliminate acne versus just a single pimple. The doctor knows best....usually.
yes but this said it worked, ( most things do) but this is actually working.

what about putting astringent on a bandaid and putting the bandaid on the pimple and leaving it there until you cant stand it anymore? dries it out and preps for popping. very easy fix.
joey25426676 years ago
just pop it!
cant you just do it old skool and dab it with mud and wash?
cry_wolf6 years ago
I just pop mine on site and they are gone in a day or so XD
Thornburg (author)  cry_wolf6 years ago
I NEVER POP MINE. I will just get scabs. Also that disguisting. Going to give you a lecture. Pimples are cause by germs and grease getting into pores cloging it. When a pimple is formed many germs form. If you pop it you are just spreading it around on you face. That is just gross. Hopefully that has changed your mind.
I do it in a sanitary way mind you. What is inside is basically bacteria so i squeeze it until it bleeds. Then i sanitize my face by washing it using a cleanser like Cetaphil or soap. After i dry my face it is swollen and tissue fluid comes into to do its job. In no way do i spread the bacteria, etc. Thats just unsanitary and disgusting. Its like taking engine grease and rubbing it on your face.
Thornburg (author)  cry_wolf6 years ago
You are rubbing it on your face, you just dont know it. You may have gotten off all the puss, but CERTAINLY not all the germs and bacteria. You can keep doing this but encourage you not to.
Oh, didn't know that. Are there any major risks to doing it?
if you pop it, you get most of the gunk out, but not 100% of it. if you do it until it bleeds, then aren't you introducing your blood to the bacteria? just a thought.
Thornburg (author)  garrettmikesmith6 years ago
Yes you are. I am no major, just pay attention in Health Science. Though my grade does not show it.
Your white blood cells are fighting off infection every second of every day, a popped pimple is a drop in the bucket, and your body keeps a positive pressure for that very reason (blood wells out when you break skin to push out infection). So I wouldn't worry about the pimple acting as a -source- of infection, but since it's the clogged/infected pore that causes 'em, if you want them to not come back, you should treat 'em carefully, like any wound; Clean it with clean hands and keep it from getting in contact with more contaminants (touching it with your fingers, most likely) again via a sterile band-aid or neosporin.
I just realized that... o.o
