How to stop blemishes in their tracks.
Few things can topple self-confidence like a surprise eruption on your face right before a party, event or presentation.
Yes, everyone gets a pimple or two from time to time, and no matter how often we tell ourselves that we’re just like everyone else, it doesn’t stop us from feeling insecure when we’re face to face with our peers wearing a big old face-crater like a name badge.
Is there any way to help ensure your skin stays clear when it matters most?
What should you do if you see a blemish waiting to rear its ugly head?
Can you do anything:
A Week Before?
A Day Before?
The Day of a big event?
Here are our top tips to help you put your best face forward this year…
What to do a Week Before an Event
See a blemish hiding deep in the trenches, waiting for its opportunity to strike? You can’t recede a pimple once it’s begun to form, so you’ll have to bring that baby out of hiding ASAP.
Start with a clean face and some mechanical exfoliation with a dry brush or scrub of your choice.
Then, thwart those evil pimple plans with a detoxifying treatment with activated charcoal to help pull blemishes to the surface ahead of schedule, so they’ll have time to heal before your event.
Finish off with a luxurious facial massage to increase blow flow to your skin and help speed up healing.
What to do the Day Before an Event
Tomorrow’s the big day.
Just your luck, you see a lump, bump or redness that threatens to ruin your big plans for the perfect impression…Ugh.
Unless the blemish is ready to pop, curb the urge to touch it. Oils and bacteria on your hands can and will get into the wound and wreak havoc — turning a small blemish into a big problem.
Opt for a calming treatment with anti-fungal and anti-bacterial ingredients like Tea Tree and lots of antioxidants with products using Green Tea to encourage that pimple to leave peacefully.
What to do the Day OF an Event
You’re getting ready to go, and when you look in the mirror to do a final pass before heading out you see it: A Big. Honking. Zit.
What the actual fuck.
Surely it’s best to call in sick and hide under a mountain of blankets and Netflix, no?
Use pure tea tree oil on clean cotton pads/balls to help calm the blemish while eliminating bacteria that can make matters worse. Wipe or dab the clean, makeup-free spot and leave it without makeup for as long as possible before you arrive.
Tip – if you use foundation or concealer, swap your normal stuff for something with a green tint, which helps cancel out redness.
Blemishes can get the best of all of us, but with the help of clean, natural skincare and cosmetics, you may find those ill-timed eruptions are easy to forecast and foil!
