Are you battling blind pimples? They may not always be easy to see, but they can still be a nuisance. Follow this guide on how to get rid of blind pimples forever using all-natural methods at home.

What are Blind Pimples?

Blind pimples are acne that develops under the surface of the skin. They may not always be visible, but you will be able to feel them. They may form a little bump under your skin and become red, inflamed and even painful. 

Because blind pimples develop under the skin, you cannot pop them to get rid of them as you might do with other pimples. Learning how to get rid of blind pimples properly and naturally is a great way to clear your skin without damaging it. 

How Do Blind Pimples Arise?

Blind pimples arise when oil, dirt, and bacteria become trapped under the skin’s surface within hair follicles. They do not form a “head”, and so turn into painful lumps under your skin. 

Causes of oily skin can be hormonal fluctuations, for example during pregnancy or puberty, or you may just have naturally oily skin, in which case blind pimples are more common.

Thankfully, there are a number of ways you can get rid of blind pimples forever, using all-natural methods with simple ingredients. Try out these methods for getting rid of blind pimples and enjoy clearer skin: 

  • Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil is a gentle alternative to harsh antibiotics when it comes to getting rid of blind pimples. Dilute the tea tree oil with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and apply twice daily to the areas of your face where you have blind pimples. The antimicrobial compounds of the tea tree oil will soothe the skin and slowly clear the infected area. 
  • Apply a Warm Compress: Applying a warm compress to your face for between 10 to 15 minutes up to four times a day will help the blind pimples soften, and release any pus. It will also help ease any pain you may be experiencing. 
  • Apply Raw Honey: Raw honey is another natural alternative to antibiotics. Just like tea tree oil, it has antimicrobial properties that will get rid of bacteria from under your skin. Either mix the honey with warm water to make a cleanser and apply twice daily. If you’re a back-sleeper, you can also apply raw honey directly to your face and leave it on overnight. 
  • Refrain From Popping: As tempting as it may be to get deep into a blind pimple and squeeze everything out, this will only make matters worse. Blind pimples are too far below the surface for popping to work. Instead, you risk scarring your skin and irritating it even further, potentially causing infection. 

How to Prevent Blind Pimples

To prevent blind pimples from appearing, clean your face on a daily basis. 

Cleanse the skin with a natural face wash twice daily, and refrain from using oily products or makeup. 

For more serious cases of blind pimples, clinical treatments can be prescribed. If you cannot get rid of your blind pimples naturally, you may want to consider consulting a dermatologist.
