Looking to help acne quickly?

When it comes to acne, it is always better to have a full treatment plan to prevent acne in the first place.

 

However, there will be times you just need to figure out what to do for a spot quickly.

 

For a quick fix, appying polysporin or an antibiotic cream with a little steroid cream like hydrocortisone 1% on ‘angry’ pimples overnight can calm them down quickly. It makes them heal faster and takes the swelling away faster.

 

It’s ok to use a spot treatment with salicylic or benzoyl peroxide. However, if you have ever tried this you will notice it will dry out the spot and make it look like a scab in the morning. If you accidentally scrape it off when washing your face you may find yourself with a bloody mess when you are in a hurry to go!
