Treatment Products – Pimples!

I am assigning this post to pimple treatment products that Ipersonally use in conjunction with my Serious Skin Care routine.  I consider myself to be extremely luck inthat I have never experienced any major issues with acne or breakouts, both as ateen and throughout my adult years. #:-S Fromtime to time, though, I do suffer from hormonal pimples (commonly once a month)and general everyday blemishes associated with my oily skin concern and unbalancedlifestyle.  :-S  I don’t like zits one littlebit, X(  therefore have always sought out the best possible treatment products toknock them out of the picture super fast, before they become unsightly and haveme feeling embarrassed and uncomfortable with my appearance.  >:P
Zit Zappers (as I like to call them) or Blemish Busters,Pimple Punishers, Spot Slayers, Acne Annihilators etc, (yes, I am sure you’vegot my drift by now, LOL).  :))  These termsare all slang for pimple treatment products, which are a frequent (although not daily assuch) and essential step in my beauty regime, which I am STILL relying on, evennow in my late thirties.  :-O  Don’t ask me when pimples will be no more,because as much as I can’t wait for that day to finally come, :-w  I have learned tolive with my imperfections the best way I know how. ;)  So, now I will share my tried and tested top pimpletreatments that I use when I have a zit that needszapping quickly, which helps reduce any swelling with the least amount of irritation,discomfort or scaring. :)

Alpha-H Clear Skin Blemish Control Gel
Because of my extremely oily skin, which coincides withenlarged pores, congestion and blackheads, I also suffer from the odd blemish on a regular basis.  :-<  I always need to havea spot treatment handy to target these individual bumps, so for the pastfew months I have been super impressed with this new treatment gel, which has proven toeffectively stop pimples in their tracks, whilst preventing new ones forming.  I can declare that it is todate, my "Holy Grail" healing treatment, and for me, that is saying a lot  :x
Presented in a plastic tube with a screw-on lid, the gel-based spot treatment,infused with natural essential oils, such as tea tree and eucalyptus, has acomplimentary aroma that is refreshing and invigorating.  I like thedelicate but distinctive scent, associated with the botanical ingredients,which are also anti-bacterial to produce a somewhat natural, medicinal smellthat ensures me it ‘means business’ so, instead of smelling pretty it is indeed a working powerhouse.  o-> I onlyneed a tiny pin-sized amount of gel for each individual blemish or a fine layerto any small affected areas, which is ample in this case.  It dries fast and rapidly reduces redness,whilst any large pimples virtually disappear overnight, while smaller bumps andblind pimples, which have not come to a head, usually don't even get the chanceto form.  While it works wonders targetingspots, it doesn't dry the rest of my skin and in fact the gentle, soothingformula offers a calming relief to red, angry pimples.  I usually apply this to my spots at night,yet it is great to use and reapply whenever or as often as required.  :D

Dermalogica Concealing Spot Treatment
I have now been using this spot treatment for over 2 ½years, initially having a love/hate relationship with it.  =((  The original version I first tried was a glass dropper-stylebottle with a runny liquid formulation that would tend to make application quitemessy and would often deliver an uneven, blotchy coverage. :|  But, even though it was such a pain to use, it eventually won me over and I became hooked due to its efficacy; I hadnever used a product that worked this well on spots before!  =D>   It has recently been repackaged andreformulated and is now presented a 10ml tube, featuring a thicker, easier tohandle cream, instead of the runny solution it use to convey.  <:-P
This on-the-spot treatment works quickly and effectively bydrying out and diminishing pimples within 24hours.  It sometimes takes a bit longer to heal blindpimples, those ones without a head; yet it still reduces the redness andswelling, whilst in my opinion actually prevents them developing any further.   (*) The dual-purpose, thickly textured, tintedcream still has the awful medicinal scent of it’s prototype, that I am now quite accustomed to, being that this type of scent is quite the norm for most anti-bacterialtype pimple products I have tried.  Itconceals exceptionally well on my skin to ensure that my spots are delicatelydisguised with a sheer skin-tone veil, whilst the healing properties of the potent, active, pimple-fightingingredients tackle the infection. \:D/  I like to use this as my morning pimple treatment as itcompliments my normal makeup application perfectly and comes in handy fortouch-ups during the day. (This re-application process leads me to believe I amleading charge to abolish those buggers in next to no time)  ;)  Whilst the tube is a little on the small side incomparison to the previous 15 ml glass bottle version that would seem to lastfor ages, I’m not complaining as I prefer the thicker formula, which is the ideal treatment to heal and conceal my unsightly spots.  This pimple treatment will always have a homein my daily beauty treatment regime. :D
