Let’s be honest, mamas, spots and things that go bump when you really don’t want them to (just before a special occasion, important meeting/whatever) are a beauty bugbear we never totally grow out of.
This, trust me, is one of the fastest, most effective ways to blitz a blemish overnight. Tried and trusted, over many years, and I can’t think why I haven’t mentioned it here earlier!: The Body Shop’s Blue Corn 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Mask (£10).
Yes, it’s a mask and isn’t billed as a spot treatment. But it’s amazing ability to draw out oil and impurities, calm redness and generally dry things up makes it the best I’ve come across. Truly.
Dab a touch onto the offending spot only (not all over your face) at bedtime, and gently wipe off in the morning to reveal a much less ‘out there’ blip.
A great one to have on standby!
