Have an Underground Pimple? Try This Nifty Trick

When emailing with my friend Breean yesterday (she’s the makeup artist featured in this smoky eye tutorial video) we got to talking about cystic pimples and how best to hide them when you have a special event or important occasion coming up. She shared a pretty handy trick that I thought I’d pass along to you.

If she gets a deep, underground pimple days before an important engagement, here’s what she does: “I take a heavy amount of omega fish oil pills, which are natural anti-inflammatories. If I saturate my body with omegas for a few days, the swelling goes down quickly! It works really well for cysts and [the oils are] good for your complexion in general,” she says.

I haven’t tried this myself, but I do get deep undergrounders like Breean does, so I think I’ll give it a try.

What natural beauty tricks do you employ to solve important skin issues? Tell me about them and I might just add them to my routine, too.

    Fish oil is really good for skin, in general. I give it to my son to help prevent eczema flare-ups. It works! 🙂
