Even if your high school days are well behind you, it doesn’t mean you won’t get the occasional acne flare-up. Hormones, stress and diet can all contribute to what happens on the surface of your skin well into adulthood and while it may not be as devastating as a prom zit it can be just as frustrating to deal with.
Confession: In high school, I had one of those deep cystic pimples that looked like a horn was trying to break though my forehead and a good friend of mine could. not. stop. staring. I couldn’t really blame her and we still talk, and laugh, about it to this day.
Truth be told, I don’t have much to complain about when it comes to my skin; it’s relatively problem-free if slightly on the dry side but I still get those epic, can’t-look-away blemishes that I want to deal with ASAP.
Luckily, with age comes wisdom. And you’d be wise to give Clear Difference a whirl.
Estée Lauder’s Advanced Blemish Serum is oil-free, powered by salicylic acid and Triple Action Clarity Technology and shrinks blemishes immediately. Like, as soon as it makes contact with the offending bump. And it does so without getting flaky and gross—I’m looking at you Clean & Clear—and a little goes a long way. The compact aqua bottle will last you for months.
Whenever I get the inkling that a pimple is trying to make its way to the surface, I fight it with this product and it always loses.
