Got a blemish tonight?

Date night at home or social distancing I know it is annoying. Especially if it is red, raised and about to pop! Not very handsome or sexy.

So, here’s a quick rescue you can try and do.

What ever you do TRY not to pop it. Pretty please …It will only make it worse and red or uglier.

BUT if you absolutely must …do this.

Place a wet warm wash cloth or flat cotton pad on the blemish. Let it rest at least 5 minutes.

Next,I use a couple of cotton swabs to opposite sides of the zit. Apply light even pressure. If you happen to feel pain or discomfort STOP. Don’t push your luck!

*If you happen to squeeze it all out a dermatologist recommended to me to use a dab of over the counter Neosporin after you do.

Now, rinse your face with a soap and clean warm washcloth again and get some clay like a mask or a powder clay you mix with water. Place a nickles worth on the blemish and leave on for a few hours (OVERNIGHT if you don’t have date tonight)

I find the clay is my absolute favorite remedy to do! it tones down inflammation, the redness and discomfort and makes it practically disappear. When I have to be on TV, guest speak at luncheons or am going out on the town. This is it. Works like a charm for me.
