When you want to minimize the unpleasant appearance of acne overnight, you can use any of the following quick tricks to reduce puffiness, redness, and irritation:
Honey and cinnamon
Mix half a teaspoon of honey and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder. With the help of a cotton bud, apply the mixture of a pimple. For best effect, stick a small patch and leave the honey overnight. In the morning, wash your face with lukewarm water. Honey and cinnamon will reduce irritation and greatly reduce the visibility of problematic pimples.
Ice and toothpaste
Place an ice cube on the problematic place for two minutes, remove it for 30 seconds and then hold it for another 2 minutes. If you cannot submit ice directly on the skin, wrap the small cube in a thin cloth. Apply a little toothpaste on the pimple. Leave the paste on the face overnight. It helps with faster drying of a pimple and also doesn’t let an unpleasant scar remains on the place. Remember not to put the paste on other parts of the face because it dries the skin.

Mix a few drops of tea tree oil with Aloe Vera gel. Apply the mixture directly to a pimple and allow it to act overnight. In the morning, wash your face with cold water.
Caution: Do not do this if you suspect that you are allergic to aspirin! Crumble one aspirin tablet and add a little water to make a paste. Apply the paste on the pimple and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then rinse with water. Aspirin significantly reduces redness.
