Post Holiday Blemishes....


My skin gets troubled after a holiday. The temperature is different, the skincare I use will alter, the air con, the flight and the alcohol intake all provide worthy elements to a breakout nightmare. 

These little bottles are my life savers, not only for after a holiday but any time I feel a breakout coming on or when I wake up with a visible problem.
..............................................................

Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel  - about £30 for 50ml 
@Liberty

Once you've cleansed your face at night, apply a thin layer - you can apply it all over the face or do as I do and just apply it where needed. Make sure you go wider than the affected area to kill any surrounding bacteria. It's a very liquidy gel, completely clear, that will dry 100%.
  It really helps clear the skin, calm inflammation and prevent future breakouts by reducing excess sebum.
It contains no artificial fragrance or colour and does contain the wonder ingredient- Salicylic acid.

I have very sensitive skin and this had never given me an irritation. I also find it great as a barrier in the day, if I or a client has an open blemish, I apply this and then I can apply make up right on top without any disturbance in the make up. 

Great one for professional kits and for personal use.

Another favourite of mine is the -
Avene TriAcneal Night Treatment Cream - about £23 for 30ml
@Boots


This is designed for slightly more severe imperfections but I use it in very small doses on specific areas, and it works a treat.

Again, after cleansing your face at night, apply a thin layer on the affected areas, blemishes, blackhead heads and scars. You may feel a slight stinging and a little flaking of the skin- this is completely normal and will probably fade the more you use the product. 
It's a yellowy pearly ointment which dries 100%. The tiny nozzle also helps with application so you don't over do it. 

You can use this as a nightly treatment and within 2 months the number of spots will be reduced and scars are much smoother. Or you can use it like me as a 'dot on where needed' affair- this also works wonders. 
I've applied this to a variety of blemishes, even more of the skin abscess/boil type and by morning it has really taken care of them.  
Definitely one to have in your bathroom and bag at all times if you have acne prone or problem skin.  

It contains no Parabens and does contain Glycolic acid along with a small selection of other great ingredients.

Another super spot treatment is -
this pocket sized gadget from no! no! SKIN- about £130 and re-chargeable
@Selfridges 



This little thing stands less than 4" tall, looks pretty smart and is of great quality. It uses heat and light to target the blemish at it's source and minimise it's appearance and lifetime on the skin.
The light destroys the blemish whilst the heat speeds up the healing process and reduces swelling. 

This is to be used as and went needed, any time of the day or night, it does leave a small red mark for about 10mins so don't use it just before you head out as you will make it more obvious! 

It's very easy to use, you simply hold it over the blemish for 10 seconds, it counts for you, and then redo it a minute later. It does sting a little, especially if the blemish itself it very painful. 

I've used on it large lumps under the skin that I know are gonna be monsters and before they can even show, they go back down again. 

Definitely a fast and very effective blemish treatment. 
I take mine everywhere with me and have one in my kit for clients- on a job you can cover a blemish but not texture or swelling, I use this and the swelling is normally lessened in a few minutes.

All these can be used anywhere on the body, chest, back, neck wherever you need to.
