How to Get Rid of Pimples Overnight

 

by

We are all too familiar with the frustrating experience of waking up to a large, unsightly pimple – especially on the morning of a big day, a date, or an important work meeting. 

Adult acne can be frustrating, uncomfortable, and difficult to manage. One of the worst things about getting a big zit or blemish is that they can pop up unexpectedly – seemingly out of nowhere! Even with a well-rounded, diligent skincare routine, or the utmost attention to diet, personal hygiene, and wellness, acne can still pop up out of nowhere.

The pain points of experiencing an unexpected pimple lend themselves to a quick, effective, and natural solution. You want it gone in a pinch – but how?

We’ll walk you through the best steps for eliminating a pimple overnight, or at the very least, significantly reducing its size and severity. 

Identify the Pimple

The first step of tackling a blemish is identifying its type. When it comes to unexpected pimples that pop up overnight, there are typically two categories: whiteheads and blackheads. They both occur when a pore becomes clogged with oil or bacteria, but they have significant differentiators and treatments:

Whiteheads/Pustules/Papules

Whiteheads are typically white or red and are closed. The sebum or oil is trapped beneath the surface of the skin, giving the pimple a balloon-type look and feel. They are also known as pustules or papules and can spread or grow if not treated correctly.

Blackheads

Blackheads are typically dark in color and open. The sebum and oil are also trapped within the pore, but because the pore and sebum are open to the air, oxidization gives the blemish a dark color. These types of zits are noninflammatory and usually occur where larger, more prominent pores occur on the face, like the nose, T-zone, or forehead

Hot Compress and Humidity

The next step in tackling a pimple overnight is to apply a hot compress or humidity to the blemish. Run a face cloth under warm to hot water and rinse out the excess. Apply to the blemish firmly but gently. This method will help apply hot air and moisture to the pimple, drawing out the impurities from the pore. It will also soften the skin, prepping it for the extraction or a topical skincare product. 

Another method is using a sauna or hot steam. If you’re without a convenient steam room, fill a bowl with hot water, and place your face right above the bowl with a towel over your head. This will trap the hot air and moisture around the face, drawing out impurities from the pores. 

Use a Pimple Patch to Eliminate 

One of the most effective ways to treat a pimple overnight is to use a pimple patch. Pimple patches are the latest in skincare technology; concentrating all of the acne-fighting ingredients into one small surface area of a sticker. They can effectively accelerate the healing time of a zit, and even eliminate it overnight. 

Simply peel the sticker off, apply it on top of a blemish, and wait at least 6 hours for the sticker to work its magic. After, peel off the sticker and reveal the clear skein it left behind!

The Disco Overnight Pimple Sticker can work for all acne types. From the sebum-filled whiteheads to the hard, under-the-surface blemishes; the Pimple Sticker will target the heart of the problem area, and dissolve the zit straight at its source. Furthermore, the Pimple Sticker uses Salicylic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, and Madacassoside to calm redness, relieve inflammation, flatten raised skin texture, smooth out skin tone, and relieve the pain of those big, under-the-surface zits. 

The Pimple Sticker also utilizes self-dissolving microneedles that are fixed on the sticky underside portion of the sticker. With Precision Technology, they grip the contours of the face and target ingredients straight to the source of the blemish. These sharp, stable microneedles prove much more effective than most topical treatments that never even penetrate the surface of the skin, or often rub off on pillows or clothes. 


Pimple Stickers are the simplest and most effective way for treating a one-off, unexpected zit or pimple. Our favorite method of using them here at Disco is applying one after completing your nighttime skincare routine and sleeping with the Sticker overnight. In the morning, remove the sticker, cleanse and moisturize, and reveal clear skin that’s ready to tackle the day.

Use a Face Mask to Detoxify

The second method for treating a pimple overnight is to use a detoxifying clay face mask. Clay face masks are especially effective for men’s skin. Men tend to have larger pores, increased sebum production, and an oilier skin type due to the hormone testosterone. As a result, clogged pores can become very common.

Using a detoxifying face mask can help draw out impurities from the pores and absorb excess oil. The Disco Rejuvenating Face Mask is formulated with toxin-absorbing Charcoal, inflammation-fighting Willow Bark Extract, and soothing Bentonite Clay. Apply the Face Mask to a breakout area, wait 10-20 minutes for the mask to dry, and cleanse off with warm water. Using a Face Mask once a week is the best practice for preventing future breakouts, and keeping the skin detoxified and rejuvenated. It can also help purify a problem area that has recently broken out or be applied directly to an area of blackheads or whiteheads. 

Final Thoughts

Adult acne is a shared reality among men, but fortunately, Disco will help you get armed with the tools to fight breakouts and zits overnight with premium skincare solutions. The best way for keeping a clear, vibrant complexion is to follow a skincare routine to keep the oil, bacteria, and dirt away. Prevention is always easier than correction.

However – those unexpected pimples can still pop up, which is why topical treatments like the Overnight Pimple Sticker are so useful to get rid of a zit in a pinch.
