Hey guys! Just wanted to know what remedies do yall use to ZAP PIMPLES/whiteheads before they get any worse?

I use Retin A but it doesnt really do anything but peel my skin and cause the pimple to get worse!

Two main ones that I reach for: YonKa Juvenil and MD Formulations Clearing Complex. I found that Dermalogica Medicated Clearing Gel is also good. Some swear by tea tree oil dabbed on spots Smile

I reach for the tea tree oil or lavender essential oil. Dr Hauschka Rejuvenating face mask left on the area overnight also helps to draw the spot out.

as rosebud said i also used tea tree oil and lavender, now im using a benzo peroxide cream called "oxy 10 vanishing" if your into essential oils geranium is really good but dont put it stright on your skin as it can hurt or make the skin a little red, so mix it with water etc, one other ive used is lemon juice!
i squeeze the juice onto a cotton wool bud and dab it on my skin, i love it! dries the pimple/whitehead out etc it stings a tad - but no pain no gain!

I had great success with Mario Badescu Drying Lotion in the past - it made my blemishes disappear overnight. Doesn't seem to work as well on me lately though. I've also used BP and SA - they were okay, results were nothing as dramatic as the Mario Badescu. I'm now using a combination of products - aspirin masks, Dr Hauschka CC and Decleor Essential Balm. They are great for calming down breakouts, diminishing redness and decongesting pores. HTH

I use T Tree oil during the day and TOOTHPASTE at night which takes away the redness!! Oh yes and sometimes crush up some asprin (not soluble) to a paste with a touch of water and pat it on to the spot and leave on for 15 mins. Seems to work for me!

Well..I don't know about overnight success or anything. I've never had that with anything. However..there is a product which I've been using..called Royal Jelly from Perfect Complexion..and this has been helping my skin little by little. should prevent my breakouts from forming all together. It contains Vitamin B5..and its actually a substitute for taking those 20 Vitamin B5 pills everyday.
