How to Kill a Pimple

My skin is my career, laugh but I spent many early years being teased for what was then teenage mild breakouts that left me mentally scarred. Fast forward to this weekend and while I was suffering from a major cold/sinus infection, to add to my misery I had a major pimple on my cheek. Usually, when a pimple shows up I dab a little Clinique Spot Treatment on it right away and 99% of the time it's gone within hours. Well, Mr. Pimple, resisted not only the Spot Treatment, but it also resisted my old school formulas as well, toothpaste, Clearasil, Noxzema. Mr. Pimple took over my life, I refused any visitors for fear it would grow in the sight of strangers. Quickly, a plan of attack came to mind. I crushed an aspirin and mixed that with lemon juice and applied it to Mr. Pimple. In my geeky science school head, I knew the acid from the lemon juice would do some harm and the aspirin was suggested from my make-up artist friend, Tamara. Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory drug and Mr. Pimple was inflamed and unstoppable. Three hours later, Mr. Pimple was shrinking but he was leaving an ugly dark spot for all to remember. Mr. Pimple was mocking me even in death. A true product junkie has an answer for even the worse case scenarios and after tearing up my lab, I found the product that would erase Mr. Pimple forever.





The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion is my savior. In just two days, Mr. Pimple is going going gone. No more nasty blackhead to remind me of those brutal 4 days, and 4 nights of no blush or bronzer. I am sure that by this time next week, my cheek will be saying Mr. Pimple who? I apply this product three times a day, Mr. Pimple wanted war and I brought out the big guns.
