Which spot treatments actually work? - 13-02-05, 05:33 PM

Hi all

At the moment I am getting quite a few spots on my chin - they all get squeezed because I just can't leave them alone! However I know that I am picking at them too much and causing scarring. I have freckles which help to hide marks but I want to stop picking!

Do any of you have a tried and trusted spot treatment that you can recommend to me?

I'd preferably like one that you apply when a spot first starts to appear, to prevent it from getting to that stage when it's ready to squeeze!

Thanks in advance x

Hi there
Go to your chemist and ask them, my daughter suffers from spots at the moment and she recommended benzyl peroxide 2.5 it does come in stronger strengths, so far my daughter is very impressed with it.,

Have you tried Clinique's Blemish Gel? I think that's the name of it - A friend loaned me hers a while ago and it definitely cleared them up double-quick and also prevented one that was definitely planning on taking centre stage across my chin - nice .

That's really true Nikkie - I recently started up with my Eve Lom Cleanser which is the same principle (with the muslin cloth) and I have to agree, it does help to prevent those blemishes creeping up on you.

Can't afford cleansers at the higher priced end of the market unfortunately ladies, closest I get to them is drooling over them during my regular window shopping trips to Space NK!!! As soon as I can afford I will definitely use them.

Thanks for all the tips so far. I did have the clinique blemish treatment a couple of years ago and did rate it so maybe thats the one to try now. Although the creams from the chemists might be cheaper.

Keep the recommendations coming xxx

hiya , quinoderm is very good but just a word of warning, it does say this on the instructions but i didn't bother to read it....it will bleach your towels...i had a brand new set of towels and flannels and didn't rinse my hands properly after using wiped my hands and thought nothing more, then a few hours later i noticed bleach marks on my lovely new towel and still didn't make the connection. A week later after washing all my towels every single one apart from the bath towels had bleach marks on. ruined.......my own fault.
