And oh boy, when it does begin to appear – nothing can be more stressful! Yes, makeup can be magical - but covering up that swollen, red (with a white tip) pimple can be a monumental task. But fret not ladies, for we present to you some super weird, but highly effective ways to get rid of a pimple overnight.

2. Tricky Toothpaste
Toothpaste too dries up the pimple and applying it two times in a day to the affected area should do the job for you.
3. Crushed Aspirin
This pill ain’t just for splitting headaches, ladies. The anti-inflammatory properties can cure that huge zit too. Crush some aspirin and add enough water to make it a paste. Topically apply the paste on your pimple and wait for the magic to happen!
4. Get The Garlic On
