They say prevention is better than a cure, but what do you do when you're face has been hit with the mega pimple overnight and you need it gone before the big party at the weekend? What's your tried and tested way to get rid of a spot, quick smart?
Good question. There are so many lotions and potions. A pimple is just a pore that is blocked with oils and the body is trying to expel the "toxins". I used to dab mine with lemon juice to dry them out. Outside of the, cover up is the best method.
This is my lifesaver: Ella Bache's Creme Intex No. 2. Simply dab some on and leave overnight. It really helps to draw the toxins out, ready to pop so keep tissues handy. Also good as a base for concealer, and helps to do its magic underneath. LINK
I try to work out what caused it and correct it - if it's just a random pimple and not a huge outbreak that is - usually it's dietary for me, so I just try and eat really well and have juices, sort of like a "mini-cleanse" for a day or so. I've never tried anything topical and try to keep away from makeup that isn't mineral based so my pores don't get clogged up.
