I know there are many girls out there who freaks out with the name of pimples. You may have seen some or many girls who go all nuts when they see a pimple pounding on their face. I was one of them. Period!
Seriously! Pimple is a big No No for me. I just can’t resist the appearance of a pimple on any part of my face. But look what, just before the most important day of my life I had a ugly pimple on my lip. Yes not anywhere else but on my lip! Ugghhhh
My day started all bad!
For my convocation, I was all excited. Bought a new dress, new cosmetics, my Gucci shoes and my insanely awesome fresh red berry lip color from my favorite brand MAC. Imagine how much I would be happy to buy all this stuff for my graduation day. I had thought that I would be looking all graceful and beautiful (though I am naturally pretty). But this ugly pimple just attempted to wash away all my excitement and turned it into a nightmare. I remember I was soo depressed, frustrated, irritated and miserable in such state.
The thought of wearing my favorite lip color with a swollen bump on my lip gave me anxiety attacks. I had just few hours to think what I could possibly do to save myself from ruining my day.
I badly need a cure!
At first, I thought of looking for a home remedy to treat the pimple on lips. I tried to apply cucumber on the pimple in an attempt to cool it down. The remedy worked to reduce the inflammation but the swollen lip was still there. I then used an ice cube and applied it over my swollen lip pimple. Again this remedy just worked a bit and the ache from my pimple just got numb for some time.
I was extremely worried and wasn’t finding any way to treat it. As the pimple was fresh so there was no sign of drying it out. I then read a home remedy on treating lip pimple through applying mouthwash so I tried out that and took a cotton stick dip it in Listerine and applied it on the pimple at different intervals. Doing it for may be around 5 to over 6 times, the redness of the pimple reduced a bit. But still the bump was there and it seemed to gross me out the way it was looking.
It got night and I was worried how I was going to look in the morning. At night I just tried another home remedy where it was said to use fluoride toothpaste on the pimple to dry it out. That was my last attempt and honestly I was all tired and messed up about what was happening to me right before the day for which I waited too long. With these thoughts and anxiety for the other day I closed my eyes and tried to sleep.
To my surprise…
In the morning, I immediately got to the wash room to wash off the paste and there it was; reduced inflammation, reduced redness and just a bit swelling was left. But I was successful to get rid of the bulging red swollen lips. I was able to camouflage my pimple with the help of my lip. So after using around 4 home remedies and makeup I was able to at least reduce the size and redness of my pimple in a day.
I was a bit hesitant, but once I reached the auditorium my friends started to give nice complements and I was glad that nobody noticed that ugly pimple on my lip line. The ceremony went great and I clicked tons of pictures. I was glad that my days was saved from being getting ruined.
