Raise your hand if sudden breakouts decide to pop out on occasions you want to look picture perfect? *tries to reach for the roof with my hand*
You know how it goes, you try to do everything before hand to look good for a special occasion: you've washed your hair, you've shaved, you know what make up look you're going for, you know what outfit to wear and right when you're ready to go to bed to get your 8 hours of sleep (uhum!) you look into the mirror and you see that a little friend on your face has decided to join you tomorrow, yay!
Then it's time to take out the big guns and kill your little friend, mwoehahaha!
I'm talking about Vichy Normaderm concentrate.
It's an active anti-imperfection concentrate to put on sudden localized pimples.
It's a green creme that contains salicylic acid that will dry out the breakout within 24 hours.
Preferably to put on before going to bed to let it sink in and take out that blemish before you getting up.
For those who are wondering, it does says it's hypoallergenic, so for those who have sensitive skin or whose skin is likely to have allergic reactions to products, this Normaderm is gentle enough to put on the skin.
You might have heard about the tooth paste trick: it's supposedly to dry out the zits. Please know that this can't be good for your skin. Tooth paste contains fluoride and for those withe sensitive skin: this can cause the zits to spread out even more!
And apparently, non-fluoridated toothpaste can irritate the skin as well. It might inflame the skin if it contains peppermint oil.
Be careful before putting a certain product on your skin by reading the ingredients. And should you want to try a certain product, apply it somewhere that you can cover up easily if it does cause irritation.
Please do realize that a certain product that works for your friend doesn't necessarily mean that it'll work for you too. If you're not sure what will work for you after doing tons of research, go see a dermatologist. (S)He will be gladly to advise you a product which is suited perfectly for your skin.
Good luck with your skin adventure!
