oh dear—pimple bindi—probably not the look you were going for for the first day of school. first of all, sorry for the delayed response. I get about 100 questions a week on tumblr (wish I were exaggerating) so it’s a bit of an Q&A avalanche. the fastest way to reach me is always twitter @evachen212. I answer within 36 hours on that platform! anyway—you touched on (a little pimple humor there) the most important factor: do not touch or pick at your spots. ever. no matter how inviting (in a weird way) they are. that makes them last infinitely longer. I don’t care if you have to sit on your hands or tape a reminder to your mirror, don’t mess with your face! what’s probably making your spot harder to conceal is the fact that it’s raised as well as dark. if you’re ultra-lucky enough to have a dermatologist, give her a shout—she can inject (yes, inject) a touch of cortisone into the area and the pimple will be gone overnight or at least by 80%. but, my darling, patience… patience is key with pimples. they’re a waiting game! wait for the swelling to go down (ice can help with this) and then conceal.
