Good Question

Blemishes, acne, pimples, spots, zits! We all have them at some point or another. So, how do you deal with it?

I steam those little buggers with a clean towel dampened in hot water. Then I apply the Clean N' Clear advantage acne spot treatment. I also started to apply a little dab of 1% hyrdrocortisone to bring down the redness and inflammation.
I'm also trying to use up a tube of La Roche-Posay effaclar duo. It doesn't do much for any pre-existing spots, but it very well may be doing to great job of stopping potential ones.
For more preventative measures, before those time-of-the-month blemishes can pop up, I'll use the Dermalogica clear start overnight treatment at night instead of regular moisturizer. I also will use the Origins out of trouble 10 minute mask or the Glossier mega greens galaxy pack to pull as much as I can out.

With that said, I think that my blemish pop ups are closely related to hormones and diet. I'm slowly but surely trying to be more mindful of my sugar intake and overall diet. I definitely feel better when I eat better, and I think my skin does too.
