6. Hot Compress
If you have the time, steaming your face using a facial sauna or pot of hot water is a great way to open your pores and remove dirt, oil and bacteria. Otherwise, a hot compress applied directly to the pimple will work just as well. Dip a clean face cloth in hot water, and hold it against the pimple for five minutes. Wash your face immediately after, and finish with a splash of cold water.
