In brief: Pimple appearance

The most important thing to remember is to avoid the urge to pick at it! Keep your skin clean and moisturized with hyoallergenic products, and apply benzoyl peroxide as directed on the package.
A cool compress on the day of your event can help reduce redness and swelling.
