Here is a quick zit fix plan :
*DO NOT SQUEEZE THE AREA! I repeat, as tempted as you may be to do so, do not squeeze it!
*wrap an ice cube in a dry clean white cotton wash cloth and place it on the troubled area for about 15 minutes to take down the swelling
*wash with a sulfur based lotion Note: Rodan + Fields Unblemish Acne Wash active ingredient is Sulfur 3 %
*use a toner with Hydroquinone which fades the red appearance Note: Rodan + Fields has two toners to choose from, one is called the Spot Fading toner which has 2% hydroquinone, and the other is called the Clarifying toner which has witch hazel and glycolic acid in it. Glycolic acid unclogs the pores.
*apply benzoyl peroxide Note: Rodan + Fields Unblemish Dual Intensive Acne Treatment has 5% benzoyl peroxide and it is delievered in a dual action manner to get it into the cells so it can kill the bacteria which is causing the unsightly issue.
Rodan + Fields is currently rated as the # 1 Premium Acne Skin Care product in the USA, because people use it and get excellent results.
Also, I recommend Rodan + Fields Micro Dermabrasion paste. It can also be used every other day to help remove blackheads, which are clogged pores with the skins oils.
