I made some changes in my personal life earlier this year, and these changes have in turn changed my skin. I.e. I am getting ugly pimples on my face during that time of the month. Boo! So here is my list of Blemish Fighters that have helped get my skin back in check:
- Cleanser with Salicylic Acid like these Yes To Tomatoes Facial Towelettes – I love using these right before I head to the gym… and after. Salicylic helps gently kill bacteria to fight and prevent those pesky spots. Also try this Clarifying Facial Wash from Earth Science Naturals.
- Fresh’s Umbrian Clay Mattifying Mask is a wonderful spot treatment; after washing your face leave it on your blemish for 15-20 minutes and then wash off. It’s also great for keeping pores clean around your nose.
- Good ol Tea Tree Oil. I was so impressed at how fast this solution dried out a large pimple- gone in a day. I’m going to keep a bottle of this in my medicine cabinet ALL OF THE TIME. Here are a few more uses for tea tree oil– talk about multi-tasker! I suggest dabbing one drop on the pimple and watch it disappear.
