Are You Guilty of This Spot Treatment Mistake?
Let’s talk about spot treatments. 🎯 I see so many people misusing these creams, especially among those with active acne. When you have 6-8 pimples at a time, it can be challenging to use spot treatments. Most of the time, people use them all over. When you do this, it can be overly drying and cause more breakouts. 😩 It can be easy to fall for this mistake. But, it’s important that you use these as SPOT treatments to truly help your breakouts instead of making things worse. I’ve been using this spot treatment THE PLANT BASE - AC Clear Magic Gel

THE PLANT BASE
Get Rid of Pimples FAST! ⚡️🎯
I’ve been using this spot treatment THE PLANT BASE - AC Clear Magic Gel 🍃 It has 7.5% Centella Asiatica that’s hydrating while also effective for treating wounds like pimples. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Centella Asiatica is rich in amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids, and phytochemicals. It boasts antioxidant activity at the site of wounds, strengthening the skin and increasing blood circulation.⠀ ⠀ It also contains another familiar ingredient, panthenol, to calm the skin down from irritation. Instead of drying pimples, it works by slowly bringing down inflammation without drying the area around it. ⠀ This was the breakdown of what happened in 3 days. Day 1: I noticed some big cysts coming up but you could tell they were trapped. The kind of cyst that’s painful and annoying. I applied the cream at night before bedtime. Day 2: You can tell the spot treatment speeds up the process and my cyst quickly became a white head. I’m not going to lie, I did try to pick at it. But resisted. Day 3: So long whitehead. My post breakout pimple was less aggressive and less inflamed. I kept applying it the following night and by then my pimple was forever gone.
ZITSTICKA PIMPLE PATCHES.
I get asked on a daily basis, by my clientele, about tips to break the skin-picking habit. From a girl who used to sit in her bathroom sink every night, I can honestly tell you how difficult of a struggle I had breaking this habit. What first needs to be understood about blemishes, is that they begin as a pore under PRESSURE. Applying force or added pressure with our (bacteria filled) finger tips and nails can inadvertently push the debri deeper into the skin. Doing so can actually cause spilling into other pores under the surface, then leading to multiple blemishes in place, in the following days. Not only are we left with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, which can last months at a time, we are also left with a spread of acne clusters and traumatized skin barrier. Although it can seem tempting to quickly pop a pimple, try to do your best to remember the information above. Leave extractions to a licensed professional, allow the blemish to run its course, and use a spot treatment or pimple patch in place. The @zitsticka Killa Kit includes step 1: a cleansing swab drenched in vitamin E, salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and alcohol to properly prepare the area to follow with step 2: a microdart patch containing a clarifying treatment of hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, OG-76, salicylic acid, and sodium hydroxide! I apply a patch to any current breakout as soon as I have the urge + after a 6-8 hours I remove it to reveal a flatter, less inflamed blemish. ZITSTICKA - Killa Kit #cherieexpert
Let’s talk breakouts, shall we? Having suffered through terrible bouts of hormonal acne during my teens and early 20’s, I’ve tried just about everything to banish breakouts. Thankfully, my skin behaves pretty well now. Whether I’ve “grown out of it” or it’s a result of good skincare practices (or both), I really don’t know. I still do, however, deal with the occasional breakout. — I’ve been loyal to a particular spot treatment for years, but recently ran out of it and decided to give the Charcoal Drying Lotion from georgette klinger a try. Perfectly timed, my skin decided to act up last week and I was able to put this baby to the test. — The ingredients are similar to the other product I use: zinc oxide, salicylic acid & sulfur, with the addition of calamine, willow bark & charcoal powder. Charcoal has been a winning ingredient for me in both skincare and haircare lately. Application is easy - don’t shake, dip a q-tip & pop it on your blemishes. You will end up with black dots all over your face, but in return you’ll wake up to a reduction in redness, swelling and size of your acne spots. It dries quickly, but can rub off on your pillow (a note for side sleepers with white sheets). — Overall, I found this to be just as effective as my usual treatment, but gentler on my sensitive skin. I’ve been applying this drying lotion at the first sign of trouble and have yet to have a blemish manifest fully. Sticking with this product for now!
Acne Fighting Mask! GREAT Spot Treatment
This acne fighting mask is packed with acne-treating ingredients to exfoliate, absorb extra oil and cleanse clogged pores. So what's inside? Sulfur 10% This is the maximum, over-the-counter grade of sulfur. It clears the skin and can prevent future breakouts! Kaolin and Bentonite Clays Absorbs excess oil and cleans the pores. Aloe Vera Calms and hydrates the skin. The mask can be used all over or as a spot treatment. I prefer to use it only as a spot treatment because it can be a bit drying for my whole face. It works really well for any kind of cystic acne by reducing size and redness. Retailing for $52 this 5 oz jar will last me forever! Even if used as a full face mask, only a thin layer is needed.
