Calm the redness Most acne or pimple breakouts cause redness initially, and Johnson says that calming that initial redness can help the pimple heal faster and make you less likely to pick at it. She recommends looking for ingredients that help with inflammation, like licorice, yeast, horse chestnut, green tea, or oats. Her chosen skin care products for this are Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel, $45 or Sebum Clearing Masque, $55.
