How To Get Rid of Pimples on the Chin

Treat Chin Acne in Two Simple Steps

If back acne is bacne and bum acne is ass-ne, I wonder what the nickname for pimples o' the chin is? Perhaps you're plagued with these completely irritating chin spots, which rear their ugly heads, oh, about once a month. I, for one, am one of these people. Fret no more. Dr. Adrienne Denese, who has her own skin care line sold through QVC, has a wonderfully easy tip on treating this type of pimple problem.

The best way to treat hormonal acne is: put some over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream on the spot. (If you have access to prescription strength, it works much better). Cover it with a circular Band-Aid overnight. The Band-Aid coverage is the most critical part, so do not skip it. By the morning, the redness will be significantly better due to the anti-inflammatory effect of the hydrocortisone. Do not repeat it for more that two to three nights at the most because it can thin the skin in the long run.

I have to admit, I've been known to bandage up at night to protect my pillowcases from pimple cream marks and/or inadvertent bleaching. Will you try Dr. Denese's cost-effective method?
