Absolutely, yes. If you can, try to be proactive about your skin on your day off. Schedule an appointment with an esthetician. Generally, a mild chemical peel (stick with salicylic and glycolic acid) will work wonders for your overall complexion. If any cysts are particularly bad, you may consider a cortisone shot. Warm compresses and a Retin A based topical application may also help. Advil can temporarily help with the pain and inflammation of a cyst as well.
But I'm a big advocate of doing the whole esthetician/spa thing on days when I'm experiencing a border-line acne-induced panic attack. It's nice to have someone to talk to - professionally, personally, and confidentially - at such times. Probably the biggest benefit though is that special care and attention is very therapeutic, which goes a long way in calming your nerves and reassuring your senses.
