Question: Lou, how do I deal with breakouts? What is the most effective way to get rid of blemishes?
Lou: There are a few things you can do to help get gross blemishes on their way to leaving your face.. Don’t mess with it or try to squeeze the blemish! That will only make it worse! First I suggest trying a compress. Use a cold refrigerated washcloth or cold, wet tea bag to reduce the inflammation. Pick up a spot-treatment to apply overnight as it will help reduce the blemish a little. If the area is red, put a little Visine on a cotton swab and rub on the blemish. It will reduce redness so you can continue with your regular skincare routine. It’s best to leave it alone and let it do it’s thing. You don’t want to spread bacteria to other areas of your face or leave a scar! You’re still beautiful, don’t worry!
