No spots here!

Three ways to tackle those pesky pim­ples…

Look (UK) - - MAIN BEAUTY -

When you feel a spot com­ing:

‘The best way to stop a spot in its tracks is to keep the area clean and ap­ply an acne gel at night. I love Bea Acne Treat­ment Gel [£60] as it con­tains sal­i­cylic and man­delic acid, which both work to pre­vent break­outs.’ Bianca Estelle ‘Cover the spot with a clear sil­i­cone patch (avail­able at phar­ma­cies) ev­ery night for a week or two while you sleep.’ Dr Howard So­bel

if the spot situ is in full swing:

‘Use a prod­uct like Mario Bade­scu Dry­ing Lo­tion [£16] di­rectly on the area,. This will calm it quickly.’ Ni­chola Joss ‘I like Neostrata Spot Treat­ment Gel [£17.50] and Medik8’s Beta Gel [£26]. They’ll in­stantly get rid of a spot and speed up skin’s re­cov­ery.’ Deb­bie Thomas

how to stop scar­ring if you picked a pim­ple:

‘Use Bea AHA Re­ju­ve­nat­ing Wands [£60] once or twice a week, de­pen­dent on your skin type (1 if you ex­pe­ri­ence the odd pim­ple, 2 if you’re acne prone). Opt for prod­ucts that con­tain bright­en­ing lac­tic acid, which gen­tly ex­fo­li­ates the skin, and men­dal­lic acid, which ac­cel­er­ates cell turnover [new skin].’ Bianca Estelle
