Since most of us are self-distancing, living in quarantine and working from home, there's no need to wear makeup every day. Take advantage of this opportunity to let your skin relax and get to grips with all those annoying pimples that don't want to vanish.
Although there's a lot of acne spot remedies on the market, finding one that really works can be quite a challenge. To aid you with your study, we asked a number of dermatologists and aestheticians about the best acne spot remedies to make your skin clear.
Pimples have a tendency to pop up when you don't want them the most. No matter how tempted you are to choose, pinch, or perform minor surgery, hold your hands on yourself. You don't want to be scarred for life, don't you? If you've just got one bad blemish, there's no need to break out of the heavy, acne-fighting arsenal for your whole face. You can treat occasional eruptions — without drying out the rest of your skin — by using concentrated acne spot treatment. It's going to work directly on the acne-causing bacteria to bring down bumps quickly. Try some of the best acne spot remedies, and in no time will you be back to your normal self.
We’ve come up with a list of the best acne spot treatments:
Owing to its incredible ease of use, Mighty Patch takes the top spot. Recommended for angry whiteheads, Mighty Patch acts as a defensive shield, sealing off bacteria and germs while sealing in powerful medicines that effectively suck the whitehead dry. You'll know when it's over because the patch turns white (from all the bacteria that's already in your face). Highly sticky, the Mighty Patch is still strong and can easily be worn overnight for blemish-free tomorrow, which is why we choose it as one of the best grooming items.
Crafted especially for men of color, this spot corrector from Bevel works not only on acne spots but also on skin discoloration. Using a 9-percent lactic acid solution imbued with shea butter, green tea extract and vitamin C, Bevel's spot corrector works with only one dab overnight. It doesn't have a artificial smell like so many other acne spot remedies, so add a few points.
In just four hours, this invisible gel will shrink a pipe. Wake up with a little zit? No question at all. Apply this fast spot treatment and it could be gone by lunchtime. It's a fast-acting treatment that uses salicylic acid to exfoliate and clear pores, which easily eliminates redness.
This overnight pill treatment is pretty darn effective. Sulphur is the brave element that can wipe off blemishes when you're sleeping. It's a little different from the other lotions. Don't shake to mix it up. Instead, dip the cotton swab in the water at the bottom of the container. Apply directly to the tubing. No rubbing of it. Only let it work as you catch a few Zs.
This blemish treatment has been a staple in the Kiehl lineup since 1964. Salicylic acid destroys the eruption-causing bacteria, the ginger root soothes and absorbs excess oil, and frankincense soothes the sebum (blood) output. Attach this to your post-shave routine to remove painful bumps and dislodge ingrown hair.
Benzoyl peroxide is a highly effective ingredient found in most acne remedies. It really does work. However, a high dose can irritate and dry your skin, causing redness and inflammation. This pill medication is formulated with just the right amount to destroy acne bacteria without triggering more flare-ups. Best of all, you will find it right at a great price in your nearest drug store.
If you've got a big date and a big pimple, try covering the zit with this concealer. Don't get nervous — we're not recommending that you apply the entire face of a man's makeup. This blendable stick will camouflage your unsightly pin while removing the bacteria. Seek a darker drop of hue than your real skin tone and cover when you're healing.
