Before you go popping that zit, the first thing you need to understand is the exact cause of it. Why is it happening? Learn the precise technique to shrink it without leading to infection or worse, scarring.
It happens when the oil glands produce excess oil called sebum, which gets clogged in the pores, having no outlet, leading to an outbreak.

A mouthwash contains herbal oil and alcohol that are rich in antimicrobial properties, which not only shrink the pimples, but also reduce blemishes and kill fungus, without running the risk of an infection.
Direction For Application
- Clean your face of all the dirt and grime with a mild cleanser. Pour a few drops of your regular mouthwash on to a cotton ball.
- Gently dab it on the affected area. Let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it clean with cold water.
- Use the mouthwash in a limited amount, as an excess application can dry out the skin. Once done, follow it up with a light moisturiser.
- To erase the sign of the pimple completely, you can also dab a small amount of toothpaste on to the pimple-prone area. Toothpaste contains benzoyl peroxide and sulphur that are known to reduce inflammation and control the spreading of the pimples.
