If you have ever had to deal with the pain and discomfort of a huge, painful cystic pimple, you know just how unpleasant they can be. If the pimple isn’t affecting your appearance or your self-esteem, you might try waiting it out and see if it goes away on its own, but if it’s causing you physical pain or it’s in an obvious area, you are probably anxious to get rid of it as soon as possible. Fear not; we have compiled a list of our top tips for how to shrink a cystic pimple overnight.
Cystic acne is a particularly severe form of acne that usually afflicts people between their late teenage years and early 30s. Cysts are red, tender bumps filled with pus and are commonly found on your face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. If you squeeze them (like you probably want to), it can cause a more severe infection because you’re forcing bacteria deeper into your skin. So, it’s best to reduce the urge, but don’t sweat. We have some tips on how to get rid of a cystic pimple while you sleep.
Hydrocolloid acne patches are an easy way to reduce inflammation and reduce the size of a cystic pimple overnight. Apply a small patch directly to the spot or try one of our larger patches to treat the entire affected area. These hydrocolloid patches have anti-inflammatory properties that help diminish redness, swelling, and inflammation. Simply remove your makeup before bedtime, clean your face thoroughly, then apply a hydrocolloid patch directly over your pimple after completing your skincare routine.
Ice doesn’t directly make a pimple go away, but it can help by reducing inflammation. As we said earlier, a primary cause of painful cysts is inflammation caused by trapped oil and bacteria. The ice constricts blood vessels, which reduces swelling and redness (and thus pain). We recommend creating an ice compress by taking a paper towel and wrapping it around an ice cube. Once you have your compress ready, place it on the cystic pimple for one minute at a time. Repeat several times.
The first step to clearing your cystic pimple is to wash your face thoroughly with a face wash designed to fight acne. It’s no secret that acne is tough to fight. Even dermatologists agree that most acne treatments require multiple steps. But there is a one-step way of fighting cystic acne, and it’s more effective than any other method we know of. Truly Clear offers the only FDA-approved one-step acne face cleansing bar. Put it on before bed, and it will help soothe existing breakout inflammation, redness, and size.
While there is no evidence to support the topical application of Aspirin for treating acne, many beauty bloggers (and even some dermatologists) say that in theory, the antibacterial properties can help treat acne. Crush an aspirin tablet into a fine powder to put this theory to the test. Mix it with a little bit of room-temperature water. It should only be a couple of drops—enough to create a spreadable formula. Next, apply it directly to the affected area using a Q-tip and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
If you pop your pimples, it can cause permanent damage to your skin and even leave you with scars. Furthermore, popping your pimple can cause the membrane to burst and bacteria to spill into the dermis, which can cause a far more severe breakout.
You must clean your face well when trying to get rid of a pimple. It doesn’t matter what treatments you apply on your face—if dirt and bacteria are sitting on your skin, they will surely find their way into your pores, making matters worse. Instead, use a reliable face wash (preferably one that is meant to help fight acne, like ours). If you wear makeup, make sure you remove it before washing your face to have a squeaky-clean service for topical products to have maximum efficacy.
Try applying a topical spot treatment with an active ingredient such as benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. By applying an over-the-counter spot treatment directly to your skin, you can help shrink that sucker down. When you use Truly Clear’s one-step face wash, you don’t need to use any other product after washing your face.
But for added potency, you can apply a topical spot treatment directly to the spot and apply our acne patch afterward. And because most topical spot treatments can be purchased over the counter, they are formulated with a low concentration of benzoyl peroxide (usually 2 percent), which means there is a low risk for irritation, and our patch will help ensure product potency.
While the above tips may be a great way to fight cystic pimples as they emerge, you likely are looking for a longer-term solution that will prevent them from popping up in the first place!

No one factor causes acne. Acne happens when oil (sebaceous) glands are activated at puberty, stimulated by male hormones from the adrenal glands in both boys and girls. Oil is a natural substance which lubricates and protects the skin. Under certain circumstances, cells that are close to the surface block the openings of sebaceous glands and cause a buildup of oil underneath. This oil stimulates bacteria, which live in everyone’s skin and generally cause no problems, to multiply and cause surrounding tissues to become inflamed.READ MORE
