Peter Thomas

1. Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correction Pads are two-sided so you don’t waste a drop of this citrus scented solution. Our skin wasn’t over-dried or irritated either, but be warned, there’s an brief stinging sensation when it’s first applied. ($36, sephora.com)

Tea Tree

2. Looking for something on the go? Try The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Blemish Gel. This lipstick-sized potion can knock out a blemish quickly and it smells minty fresh too. ($9, thebodyshop-usa.com)


3. PyratineXR was created to combat acne, age-damaged skin, rosacea and redness. The product works slowly over time to make your skin look its best and it’s so gentle, you can even use it on sensitive skin. ($138, pyratinexr.com)



4. This may not be the best-smelling product on the market, but Payot Pate Grise is a concealer that also eliminates acne and blackheads. It goes on a little thicker than your average liquid foundation, but blends well into your skin. ($30, skin-one.com)

    I never really use any of that intense stuff. Clearsil works for me :)

    I’ll definitely try the tea tree oil gel!

    Why is it that no matter how old you get, you still get pimples? So not fair!

  4. sabina says:

    I agree Pinkgirl, the harsh stuff always dries or irritates my skin, I try to stick to the gentle cleaners and treatments.

    For anything more than a pimple every now and then, you should really go see a dermatologist. Acne doesn’t always go away with over the counter treatments, especially if you have a few or several pimples on a regular basis.

    I tried dozens of over the counter and prescription medicines before anything started to clear my skin.
