Fighting the early signs of a spot

Recommended Posts

Im sure we’ve all been in the situation when you look in the mirror and you can see the very earliest signs of a new spot forming and you can feel that tingly sensation on the area around it. In my experience I know that no matter what I do that spot will erupt, but I was wondering what everyone thinks is the best way to reduce the severity of a spot whilst its in this early stage??

It's really hard to say, because I get different kinds and some things work better than others.

If I think it's going to come to a head I use ACV topically and Neutrogena on the spot, maybe some BP at night.

If I think its not I use on the spot and LEAVE IT. My experience is that the more you put on these the bigger they're gonna get

Yes, the feeling is known all too well. I usually use a glycolic cleanser and toner on the spot, then cover it thickly with BP. It does help it. I also will sometimes put on a mud mask. Both methods do reduce the severity of it. Best of luck.

BP the hell out of it, that's what I do. If for some reason BP isn't available, I try to put a light cover of Neosporin on it.

thanks for the advice guys, just wish there was some way to stop the bloody spot completely before it unleashes hell upon my face. :doh: I guess the best stratagey is damage control.
