Poor diet, environmental aggressors and finding a work/life balance can all contribute to the production of spots and pimples. But what do you do when you suffer with an untimely breakout? Spot treatments, including overnight formulas, gels and face masks all work hard to keep your skin looking radiant and blemish free. From top brands such as Elemis, Paula’s Choice and Eve Lom, this unique collection of spot treatments will make sure you achieve complexion perfection in no time.
Spot treatments work by drying out the area of concern by withdrawing moisture from the surface of the skin. Spot treatments do not work on acne but instead, should be applied to individual spots and pimples to help reduce the size of the blemish and control oil and shine. Salicylic and Hyaluronic acid are often found in spot treatments to refine the skin's texture and lift away daily dirt and grime for a healthy, luminous and blemish free complexion.
Spot treatments will work to reduce the size of existing pimples however they won’t clear up acne. If you suffer from frequent breakouts opposed to the occasional zit or pimple, spot treatments are not for you. Spot treatments are not to be used over the entire face but instead, in targeted areas to help individual breakouts heal more quickly. To use a spot treatment, simply apply a small amount of your chosen product to the spot you wish to heal. Leave on for a few hours (or overnight if you have time) remove, and see the results.
