A Dual-Action Blemish Buster
By Marci Robin |
I rarely get full-blown breakouts anymore, but I'm not immune to the occasional humdinger of a zit. So while I don't need to keep a daily treatment on hand, I do reach for an emergency spot treatment now and then. My latest go-to product addresses the annoyance that is a tender, red bump and my inevitable paranoia about post-blemish discoloration.
Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 Fight & Fade Gel is an absolute must for anyone prone to here-and-the pimples and long-term spots when they're gone, like I am. Typically, I'll apply it once in the morning and once before bed, and the next day, it's far less noticeable and angry-thanks to 2% salicyclic acid. The clear formula's glycolic acid is what helps stop hyperpigmentation when it's gone.
I just applied some on a new zit on my jawline, and soon, I fully expect to completely forget it was ever there.
