A pimple always seems to pop up the night before something big is suppose to happen. Rather than overloading on makeup the next morning, you might want to try today’s Beauty Tip of the Day to shrink it significantly instead.

Before you nod off for your beauty sleep, try covering your zit with hydrocortisone (a anti-inflammatory cream that you can pick up at any drugstore) and then seal the area with a waterproof bandage. Doing so will allow the effects of the cream to be more intense and potent on that unwanted pimple and you’ll wake up to a smaller and less red spot.

The method here brings results that are almost comparable to getting a (pricey) steroid injection at the dermatologist!

Wow, that’s genius. I remember having hose hydrocortisone shots in highschool...they definitely would’ve cost a pretty penny were it not for my health insurance!
