How To Get Rid Of Redness From Pimples And Acne 

Facewash twice daily with a mild cleanser. Avoid harsh scrubs and chemicals that can irritate and redden skin.  

Cleanse Gently 

To minimize pimple irritation, apply a benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or tea tree oil spot treatment. Limited use to affected areas.  

Spot Treatment 

Look for OTC lotions or gels with anti-inflammatory components like niacinamide, hydrocortisone, or aloe vera. These minimize acne-related redness and edema.  

Topical Anti-Inflammatories 

Constrict blood vessels and minimize redness and swelling by applying a cold compress or ice pack to inflammatory pimples for a few minutes. To avoid skin contact, wrap the ice pack in a clean cloth.  

Cold Compress 

To relieve inflammation and redness, apply pure aloe vera gel. Aloe vera reduces inflammation and speeds recovery.  

Hydrate with Aloe Vera 

Brew and cold green tea. Use a cotton ball or pad to apply cooled tea. Antioxidants and anti-inflammation in green tea diminish redness and soothe sensitive skin.  

Use Green Tea 

Do not pick or squeeze pimples, since this might increase inflammation, healing time, and scarring.  

Avoid Picking or Squeezing 

A broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater protects skin from UV radiation, which can increase redness and inflammation. Choose oil-free or non-comedogenic sunscreens to avoid blocking pores.  

Protect from Sun Exposure 

If over-the-counter acne treatments fail or you have severe acne, see a dermatologist. To treat acne and redness, they may give prescription drugs or topical retinoids, antibiotics, or laser therapy.
