Are you looking for pimple spot treatments? It’s frustrating when a blemish pops up out of nowhere. However, with the following easy pimple spot treatments, you’ll be able to eliminate those blemishes fast.
One thing to remember – these treatments are spot treatments. Don’t use them on the entire face. Simply use them on the pimple. These treatments shouldn’t be used more than a couple times each day or you’ll dry out your skin.

Clay offers one of the best pimple spot treatments. In fact, after using a clay spot mask, that pimple may be gone overnight. Simply use a bit of water and clay and apply right on the pimple. You can also add tea tree oil or lavender oil to the mask for an extra punch. The clay pulls out impurities, helping the blemish heal faster.
Redmond clay and bentonite clay both make excellent options to use for your clay spot treatment. Just in case you’re not sure what kind to buy. Any bentonite or cosmetic clay would work just fine and dandy, though.
Yes, garlic stinks. However, it makes a great pimple spot treatment. Garlic is known for its healing and antimicrobial properties, which will help heal your pimple quickly.
Process a clove of garlic so you have the juice from the garlic. Dab the juice (and pulp too if you want) right on that pimple. Leave it on for a while and rinse away with warm water later. Just wash it away before you hang out with other people or you’ll end up smelling like stinky garlic.
Who knew that a hotdog condiment could treat your pimples? It sounds strange, but yes, it really works. Mustard actually has natural salicylic acid in it, which works wonderfully on pimples. Mustard also contains zinc, vitamin C, Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids.
All of these nutrients are excellent for skin. You can use bottled mustard, but you can also make your own by mixing a teaspoon of honey and 1/8 teaspoon of mustard powder together. Apply the mustard or mustard powder and honey mixture to the breakout. Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse away.
For this treatment, you may not want to use an entire egg just for a tiny sport treatment. However, if you’re making anything that includes eggs and you have a breakout, make use of those egg whites.
Keep the egg shell and use your finger to scoop a bit of that left behind egg white and apply it right to the blemish. Leave it on the blemish for a while and rinse away later. Pre-treat the blemish with lemon juice for even better results.
Tomatoes include important antioxidants and they also work as an astringent. If you have a breakout, cut a small tomato open and apply the tomato juice to the pimple.
While a tomato juice mask would be fine once a week, it could be drying if you applied it to your entire face, so make sure you only use the juice sparingly on the affected area for the best results.
Another one of my all-time favorites. Ice cubes make a great treatment that removes swelling from puffy eyes. Similar to this idea is making your own green tea ice cubes. Simply add green tea leaves to some water and freeze into ice cubes.
Apply them to the pimple to remove the inflammation. You can also freeze strong green tea into ice cubes, using them directly on your breakouts for great results.
Lemon juice is an excellent all-around skincare remedy and it’s no surprise that it works well as an acne spot treatment. It’s best to use fresh lemon juice. Apply a bit of the juice to the breakout and leave on skin for 30-45 minutes.
You will probably want to do this at night, since lemon juice can make your skin extra sensitive to the sun.
Apple cider vinegar is another popular skincare remedy and it works well on pimples too. While you don’t want to use apple cider vinegar all over the face unless it’s diluted, a bit of undiluted apple cider vinegar on a big breakout is fine. Use this only 1-2 times each day on the blemish and you don’t need to rinse it away once you apply it.
It’s not usually a great idea to use essential oils on skin if they haven’t been diluted. However, if you only use them occasionally and as a spot treatment, it may be okay to use the oil undiluted.
Avoid using undiluted oils all over the face, but adding just a drop of tea tree oil or lavender oil to a big blemish may be an excellent remedy. However, test on a small area of skin on your arm first to make sure you do not have a reaction to the essential oil.
