Banish that Blemish

Blemishes and spots, those dreaded things that you wish would just disappear and never return. At some stage everyone will get them. However when you do the best thing is to treat it. 
There are so many spot treatments out there and it is hard to know which ones are good and will work. The best products to use are ones that have tea tree and witch hazel. These two are like spot zapping heroes, working together to fight off nasty spots and spot causing bacteria. 

I personally love using the Boots own spot range and find the night treatment gel and blemish stick to work well. A lot of people often tend to look past the own range and go towards the 'fancier' brands. What they don't realise is that they are missing out! The Boots own range is often much cheaper and just as effective, if not more. 
I like to use the night treatment gel when I notice a spot or blemish appearing to try and catch it before it gets bigger. When I do get a spot I like to use this gel overnight and I have noticed that in the morning it has reduced or almost completely gone! With the gel I also like to use the blemish stick during the day. I also use it under my make up then use foundation and/or concealer to cover it.
These products also are fine for me to use on my sensitive skin.

To try and prevent and get rid of blemishes and spots quickly I have a few tips:

  • Try not to touch, pick at or squeeze a spot
  • If you do touch it make sure to wash your hands and not to touch another area of your face as you will spread the bacteria of the spot
  • Try not to touch your face to much, touching your face can lead to a spot appearing
  • When you do have a spot try not to put too much make up on it, you really want to keep it as clean as you can and not clog it up more with make up
  • Cleanse your face regularly 
  • Cleanse your make up brushes regularly

So there are my tips for banishing blemishes and my top products to use. Have you got any of the Boots spot range products? I hope that this has helped, and if you have any other great tips or products feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
