    Ladies, any tips?

    I have to take pictures this Friday, and this morning I awoke to find an incoming pimple on my forehead, right in the middle. It's not a pimple yet, just a sensitive huge, red bump..noticeable. I refuse to have my picture taken with what looks like an Indian-decorated red dot on my forehead -_-
    Any tips to making it go away asap?
    You gals are lifesavers for my yearbook picture if so

    It's not exactly great for your skin, but swab some alcohol over it. It dries it out a little. You could also try the toothpaste trick, but it never seemed to work for me.
    Use something with salicylic acid in it. Or witch hazel. There are a lot of home remedies, but I haven't tried a lot of them.

    If it's not gone by then, ice it before you leave and put some concealer over it to cover it up :c Idk what else you could do.

    Remove the head and inside gunk. Apply alcohol to dry it out. Use "up & up" -- the inexpensive "maximum strength acne medication" available at Target. The reason I recommend this specific brand is that it has a higher alcohol content than most on the market and dries out pimples way~ faster than most.

    Good luck to you! I'm sure you'll look beautiful on Friday.

    Okay, so basically dry that sucker up. @Skarl it's not a full pimple so there's no puss or gunk..just a big red bump :/ But I will dry it out and dry it out and dry it out, and conceal it as best as I can for tomorrow with makeup if it's still there. Thanks girls!

    Yeah if the redness still doesn't go away, I recommend using a concealer that's about 1 shade lighter than your natural skin tone, and using a fine tip make up brush to apply it on all angles of the bump. Then just press your finger down to blend, and apply your foundation as usual.

    Tell them to photoshop the blemish off your picture.
