A Quick Trick

It's always the way that when you need spot free, perfect skin a dreaded spot appears. This bright red bulging volcano appears on your face and even concealer won't hide how big it is! So what you need is something that works and works fast! Well this won't get rid of your spot immediately (if I knew how to do that I would be a miracle worker!) but it will reduce the size and the redness so you can conceal and camouflage it.

You will need aspirin, water and a cotton bud / Q-tip.

To freshly cleansed skin take an aspirin and add a couple of drops of water, the aspirin will dissolve in the water (if not, crush it) and mix it together into a paste. Apply this to the spot area with a cotton bud / Q-tip or a CLEAN finger and leave it for around half an hour or until it dries and starts flaking off the skin. Et voila your spot should have reduced in size and redness, and all you need to do now is conceal it. If you apply the aspirin to it every day it should disappear within a few days.
The aspirin works as an anti-inflamitary. I have also heard of using anti-inflamitary drugs such as those for hay-fever but I haven't used them myself. They also tend to be more expensive than aspirin which I picked up for 22p!

I have tried so many lotions and potions and treatments for spots to no avail but this really works for me. Everyones skin is different so it might not work as well for you as it does for me but it's well worth a go, non?

What other spot treatments work for you?
