How to get rid of your pimples overnight is in fact impossible, but within a very short time - a few days in fact - you can see a marked improvement in your skin after following some very simple guidelines.

You need to understand the cause of pimples before you can learn how to deal with them, so take a few minutes to read this.

The body's sebaceous glands produce oil (sebum); for a young person approaching and during puberty, the production of sebum can vary wildly due to the hormonal changes occurring in the body at this time. Very simply, the pores on the skin (most often those on the face and are in fact hair follicles) become blocked up with sebum. Bacteria becomes trapped in the pore and feeds on the sebum creating an infection which shows as a red swollen lump.

So to help the body through this period, and hence reduce the occurrence of pimples, here are a few simple guidelines. They will not answer your question of how to get rid of pimples overnight but follow these and within days you will find a marked improvement in your skin condition.

1. Gently wash your face. Use a mild skin cleanser that will wash away the oils on your face and after that rinse your face with water.

2. Now you should exfoliate your face - that is, remove the dead skin cells that the body as discarded so they do not block up the skin pores. You can purchase an exfoliate (facial scrub) product or you can make one up yourself : pour a little salt into a small bowl, add a few drops of water and mix till it turns into a paste (not liquid!); adding a little toothpaste (paste, not gel) to this mix gives it a little extra kick, as does baking soda. You can also add some oatmeal. Use this mixture to exfoliate - gently massaging it all over the face including the areas not affected by pimples. Do this process gently - there is no need to rub. Then after a few minutes rinse your face with water. Pat (not rub) your face dry.

3. Next, using white vinegar or apple cider vinegar or hydrogen peroxide, dab this onto the affected area and this will help to dry out the skin further.

Repeat the above 2 times every day, morning and evening, and within just a few days you will see a marked improvement in your skin condition.

Never touch your face with your hands as the hands carry bacteria; use a tissue if you need to itch!

Be careful when using cosmetics - use ones that are oil-free, since oily skin is believed to be one of the factors that contributes to pimples.

Take vitamins for your skin if your diet is not full of fruit and leafy vegetables. Vitamin E is the best one for a good skin.

Start a new healthy lifestyle by having a balanced diet. Eat healthy fresh foods. Don't forget to drink a lot of water and this will help detoxify the body. Get lots of fresh air and some exercise.

The above guidelines will ensure you have a clean, healthy skin in no time. Be patient and success will be yours in your quest to get rid of pimples overnight
