Is it ok to put alcohol on pimples? I heard it dries them up quick. Whats better alcohol ( 70%) or hydrogen peroxide? thanks
Alcohol is not good to put on your face! Alcohol will dry out your face, but it dries it out too much and therefore, your oil glands are going to produce twice as much oil to replace what was lost. Try witchhazel. It's a really good toner and it won't dry out your face like alcohol.

Oh my gosh - don't EVER put hydrogen peroxide on your face!! I did it once and it burned my skin so bad. I had a crusty red scab for a week. It's not good. You could use alcohol if you apply it with a cotton swab to the pimple only. I agree with KimRick too - I use witch hazel as a toner and I love it. It's very gentle.
Never put alcohol on your face! It's terrible for your skin. Experts recommend face products that have NO ALCOHOL content whatsoever. Hydrogen Peroxide topical solution (3%) is GOOD for your skin. If your face can handle benzoyl peroxide it can handle hydrogen peroxide.

No, not on the face, but on the pimple. I tried it today, and it actually dried up the pimple nicely. BUT, i put it just on the pimple, not on the bare clear skin.
is alcohol the best thing to use on pimples? I tired it and it made my face burn and feel dry... I have hydrogen peroxide but im not sure if i should use it... so.. yea i need a bit of help..
I use alcohol and hydrogen peroxide on pimples sometimes. I apply it just to the pimple, not all over my face. It usually helps dry it up very quick. Would not try though if you have sensitive or dry skin.
