Planning for an upcoming trip can take up a lot of time as we all know. I decided to get my packing done early so that when the weekend hit, I had plenty of free time to spend with my boyfriend and friends. All was going swell up until two days ago, I purchased a new shirt, started to fold my clothes into my suitcase, cleaned out my toiletry bag and than suddenly the most annoying thing happened that put me into a complete tail spin.
I got a zit.
Not just any old zit either, the kind that is so deep underneath your skin it hurts and has no need to ever come to the surface anytime soon. I was so pissed off because the last thing I wanted was to arrive in Norway (yep, I am a total jet setter) with a big old American pimple on my face. As some of you may know, I am obsessed with having clear skin at all times. It is something that I pay a lot of attention and a good amount of money on.
As I was going into panic mode, I tried to get myself in for a facial that would include a cortisone shot but every place I called was booked because that Oscars are also this weekend. Ugg. Only in LA! My next thought was to dig deep in my collection of skincare products to see if I had anything to take this eye sore away, but sadly none of my skin treasures did the trick. Even my favorite Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel could not bring my underground pimple to surface.
My next move was to find a new “Goodbye Zit Potion” and apply it as soon as possible because the clock was ticking. I went into this new beauty supply store located on Sunset Blvd, it is fairly new and had easy parking (a great feature in this town). I walked in and asked, “What are the strongest zit killers you have??!” The helpful attendant pointed out two products that I am now kinda obsessed about and here they are;
Day Zit Zapper
Dr. Murad Acne Treatment Concealer
Why you need it: Heals blemishes with acne-fighting Salicylic Acid while providing long lasting coverage. That means, you get to cover up your pimple during the day and fight the pimple. Two in one is always the way to go! I think this would be a great gift for your guy to because he can use it for when he gets a bad breakout and he won’t be all weirded out that he has makeup on. It blends and conceals really nicely and comes in various shades depending on your skin type.
Price: $22 bucks
Night Zit Zapper
Malin + Goetz Acne Treatment
Why you need it: It’s acne treatment synthesizes salicylic acid with 10% active sulfur to dry and medicate acne pimples and balances with organic camphor to help fight impurities. It basically has this amazing formula that gets to the root of your pimple. I was fascinated of how it immediately starts to dry up. This has a stronger formula so put it one before bed and sleep the night way.
Price: $22 bucks
Needless to say, I think I have found my new fave zit zapping products. I have one more day left before I head off to Oslo so thankfully I feel like I did the right thing by trying out some new products. Traveling with bad skin is never a good thing.
