Bye Bye, Blemishes!


Yuri Arcurs/

Don't you hate it when you wake up to a tender, red bump that's sure to turn into an ugly pimple? There are plenty of products on the market to get rid of blemishes when they appear, but what about preventing them before they form? Fortunately, you can treat the pre-formed pustule before it makes it way to the surface. We tried a slew of different products to discover which ones really work.

1 Almay Clear Complexion Concealer and Treatment Gel

This nifty, two-in-one product provides a treatment gel which contains salicylic acid (a known pimple fighter) on one end, and a concealer on the other. The duo is purse-sized, so you can carry it everywhere, and it really does eliminate blemishes overnight!

2 Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion

If you haven't heard of Mario Badescu, it's time to do some research! The skin care guru is known for his cult products such as the Buffering and Drying Lotion—which are miracle workers on pesky pimples. Apply the buffering lotion on overnight with your fingers for a powerful potion that halts blemishes while you sleep.

3 Kiehl's Blue Herbal Spot Treatment

Almost every beauty editor in the biz has a bottle of this blue lotion in their vanity. The acne-fighting treatment combines natural ingredients such as aloe, witch hazel, and menthol with salicylic acid. The mix of these potent ingredients soothes the skin and kills bacteria deep down—so your zit never reaches the surface!
