Can I Use Vicks Vaporub On Unpopped Acne?

Acne is uncomfortable at any age, making you feel less beautiful when your skin doesn’t reflect the beauty within. At least, that’s what most people think when they see a pimpled-face.
But, it’s not necessary to suffer from severe acne to feel less beautiful, because a simple big forehead pimple can make you feel this way and ruin your entire day – so, that’s when the intense search for a miraculous instant cure begins.

However, I’m pretty sure that you’ve already read over the internet about all sort of miraculous ways in getting rid of acne, like toothpaste for instance, which dries a pesky pimple right away.

But have you ever thought in using Vicks Vaporub for pimple? Thought so!

Honestly, there are a bunch of health forums over the internet where people are praising this product as being the most effective remedy for acne. What actually caught my eye was that the manufacturers of this product don’t market it as an acne treatment even if it’s been tested by many.

Anyway, it seems that the ingredients found in this product – camphor, eucalyptus oil, menthol, cedar leaf oil, nutmeg oil, petrolatum, thymol, turpentine oil – are the perfect mix to get rid of acne immediately. Since many of them have anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties it makes perfect sense that could be used to treat acne.
Very important! Don’t use camphor on popped out pimples because is toxic.

How to apply Vicks Vaporub to get rid of acne?

You need:

  • Q-tips
  • Vicks Vaporub

So dip one cotton swab into the jar and scoop out a tiny amount of this topical ointment. Smear the ointment over the acne, the same way as you would’ve apply any other topical ointment.

Now, wait for the results!

Once you’ve put Vicks Vaporub on the troubled area, you will soon see a significant result. Some of the ingredients can draw the bacteria out of your skin and reduce swelling. It seems that Vicks is an effective treatment for acne and it’s also great in reducing facial wrinkles.
