If you’ve got acne-prone redhead skin, you might have a full routine you use to keep acne at bay. But what if your skin is generally clear and you just need treatment for the occasional blemish or breakouts? Here are 5 ways to help treat those pesky pimples when you’ve got sensitive redhead skin:
1. All Over Treatment
For when you’ve got a cluster of pimples or several breakouts on your face, try an all-over treatment. These treatments will help diminish existing blemishes while also helping to prevent new ones from popping up.
2. Pimple Patches
One of the worst things you can do for a blemish is to mess with it. Cover it up with a pimple patch that will suck the toxins out while keeping it clean, dry, and covering some of the redness.
3. Spot Treatment
For spot treating a pimple, try something with anti-inflammatory properties to reduce swelling/redness and salicylic acid to clear the skin.
4. Drying Lotion
Have a blemish you need to shrink fast? Try a drying lotion to help reduce the size and suck the toxins from the skin. Because of its color, drying lotion is best used overnight and washed off in the morning.
