Zap Those Zits

August 4, 2023 | Skin Care

Whether or not you have acne-prone skin, everyone suffers from a pimple every now and then. Waking up to discover a fresh zit in the middle of your forehead is guaranteed to ruin your day. It might actually be worse than a bad hair day. And unfortunately, those with dry and normal skin types are not immune to the occasional eruption. In fact, it might actually be more shocking to wake up with a pimple when you’re not focusing on preventative care and regularly using acne products.

So you are probably wondering “what do I do when a whitehead pushes its way to the surface?” Well, that’s where spot treatments come in.

Most acne spot treatments contain a more concentrated amount of active ingredients than a product that is meant for use on the entire face. This means they’re able to deliver a more potent punch to either an existing zit, or one that’s bubbling under the surface. We actually suggest using a spot treatment as soon as you feel a pimple forming.
