Spot the difference

The ultimate In Case Of Beauty Emergency tool- the spot treatment. For when your skin is all like ‘Oh you have a really important thingy on tomorrow? Cool have a gigantic, monstrous pimple’.  Thanks skin. You talk to your skin too yeah? I digress. The thing is there isn’t a stock standard spot treatment. Different ingredients are going to be effective for different types of pimples. Allow me to explain…

What should I use on whiteheads or surface pimples to eliminate them quick smart? Great question. We’re looking for a treatment with Salicylic Acid to treat these suckers. Salicylic Acid has the unique superpower of being able to penetrate the pores; and guess what whiteheads are… ding ding ding infected pores. A Salicylic Acid Power Treatment worth your dimes…

Malin+Goetz Acne Treatment Daytime has 2% Salicylic Acid and regardless of the name can be used day and night. This guy is a clear gel (hence the name) and can be worn under makeup.

“An effective, clear formula Acne Treatment Daytime synthesizes salicylic and lactic acids with natural witch-hazel to address blemishes and oily skin.”

Then we have those deep, angry suckers that don’t come to a head and look like a small mountain has formed on your face. Salicylic Acid isn’t going to cut it here. We need something to draw those suckers out. So, look out for Sulfur, sulfur will be your BFF.

Kate Somerville’s EradiKate contains 10% Sulfur AND Salicylic Acid. It will EradiKate (Ha Ha) yo Everest in no time.


“EradiKate Acne Treatment quickly calms flare-ups and is specially formulated to help prevent future breakouts while reducing the appearance of redness. Sulphur, an effective acne-fighter, aids in eliminating existing imperfections and keeping new ones from occurring.”

If you are prone to these types of pimples and haven’t tried GlamGlow SuperMud… I am here to scare you straight. SuperMud is the dog’s tuxedo when it comes to eliminating imperfections. It’s a mud mask but can also be used as an over night spot treatment (which I aggressively recommend).


“This formula was clinically developed by GLAMGLOW® dermatological chemists to help fight common skin concerns including breakouts, discoloration, black and white heads, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. Powerful, skin-clearing mud visibly draws out dirt and congestion while a proprietary six-acid blend dramatically brightens and softens skin.”

BAM! And the spot is gone.
