Beauty Hack Find??

Hey all! I had to post tonight and share something pretty incredible. I don’t usually suffer from pimples. At most in a month, I might get two-three small ones or one large one. I think the stress of starting a new job helped produce the lovely bad boy in the picture below (it was bigger than what it seems).  I took this picture last night. I thought it was ready to pop and sure enough, it wasn’t. I struggled all day yesterday with being careful of my makeup so I didn’t smear it but the combo of makeup I used was not enough! I came home with a large dot. In my despite state, I decided to Google quick pimple reducing solutions. I found and article of 10 “hacks” that may or may not work. The first one was the lucky one: eye drops. Almost everyone has them! 

Regular acne or pimples stopping medicine doesn’t ever help me. For the eye drops, I figured it couldn’t hurt. I took a q-tip and drop 3 drops on the top and rubbed it on the pimple. When I woke up the next morning, the redness had gone down and it was manageable to cover with makeup (primer and all). This isn’t a full proof solution but it is something for when you are in a pinch. I read other reviews on this and most people agree Visine works best. I used the allergy version of Visine. I wouldn’t recommend this for more than just a quick fix for a few hours. 

What do you guys think? Have any of you ever tried this? Do you have any “hacks” that seem to work for you?

    Great tip! i’ve tried rubbing banana peel, toothpaste and aspirin on my pimples (pinterest told me to do it). I guess it’s time to try some eye drops next.

      I tried toothpaste over the weekend when the pimple was just start coming in. As I put a mound of paste on it and was sitting with a minty fresh chin, I read up on articles saying that it actually dries it out! But that’s the most common hack.

      I heard tea bags help with the swelling too! I guess it all depends on the skin though. Definitely let me know if it works!
