You can get rid of a pimple quickly by removing the oil and bacteria in the pimple. All you need is a washcloth, warm water, a cotton swab and honey.

  1. Prepare the affected area

    Dab your face with a washcloth dampened with warm water. The warm washcloth opens up your pores.

  2. Remove the bacteria

    If the pimple already has pus, gently press two fingers on either side of the pimple until the pus comes out. Wipe the area with the washcloth. If the pimple is simply red, skip this step.

  3. Apply the honey

    Dip the cotton swab in honey and dab the honey onto the cleaned pimple. Allow the honey to sit for at least 30 minutes. Wash it off with warm water, and apply the warm washcloth. Repeat this step as necessary until the pimple decreases in size.
