Soak a Cotten ball in apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, or liquid vitamin A and hold yet to your face for 5-10 minutes two times a day. Drink as much water as you can so your skin is hydrated. Warm Lemon water works well. Whatever you do don’t touch the blemish! I know it might be tempting. I’m alll about the natural methods. I’m 25 and a couple of years ago my skin went haywire on me. I had clear skin all through my teens and when 22 hit so did hormonal acne. I dedicated myself to getting my hormones back on track the natural way and my skin has been clear ever since. I’m sorry you’re going through this. Acne before my wedding is something I worry about too as I tend to still have small breakouts before my period. I track my cycle naturally (no synthetic hormones!)  and I am hoping that the timing of my wedding (September 28th 2019) falls between cycles!!

I wouldn’t try something that you’ve never done before right before your wedding, home remedy or not, you don’t want to make it worse. If it were me, I would get a cortisol shot, but you said you’re not close to a dermatologist. Benzoyl peroxide works wonders for me, the persa-10 gel by clean & clear in particular. However, if you have sensitive skin, it’s a strong product and you don’t want to cause any irritation. If you have a makeup artist, what about reaching out to him/her? They could have suggestions about how to handle it, especially since they would be the ones covering up any pimples on your big day.

Raw Honey is amazing!!!! Put on a thick layer and cover with a bandaid over night.

I’m not sure where your destination is, but Ulta and Amazon both carry products that are little zit patches that are supposed to clear up a zit overnight.

I really like origin’s spot remover serum for random bad blemishes. It tends to work really fast for me in reducing the size. Definitely a big difference in size by the next day and two days later. For instance, had a large blemish appear two days ago on my cheek..used it once in the morning for past two days and, though I can feel it still there, it’s flat at this point and no discoloration so easily no noticeable especially with makeup.

Might be worth a shot if you have a shop in your location. Though not sure how you are on time. I’m sure makeup the day of will hide anything leftover really well and editting for photos easily takes care of anything even if it was somehow seen in a photo close up. 🙂 It’ll be okay. Try not to stress.

I would be careful overdoing it with the alcohol and asprin. You may cause some further skin issues being so aggressive. Drying it out too much could also cause further breakout in the area.

So I always use flonaise nasal spray actually. It has a steroid in it that decreases inflammation. It works wonders I highly recommend!

To anyone else that has this problem (too late for bride). Go see a dermatologist! If the zit is fresh they can inject it (forgot what the name of it was) and it should subside.
