My Top 3 Spot Treatments That Work

My Top 3 Spot Treatments That Work
There is nothing more irritating than waking up with a brand new spot on your face and knowing you've got to show it off to the world behind your bedroom door. Growing up I used to suffer with bad skin, even at the age of 21 22 I still get little breakouts especially before 'TOM'. I have tried my fair share of spot treatments over the years from drugstore, high end, natural and even prescriptions from the doctors. I would say my skin is in a really good place now touch wood since I have cut out a lot of products from my skincare diet.

These 3 treatments are what I reach out for now to get rid of pesky spots and swear by.

I do sometimes think it is worth spending that little bit extra on skincare treatments if you are able to as from my own experience they do work quicker. The Origins Spot Remover has always been in my emergency drawer for whenever I wake up with a spot but know I haven't got a lot of time to pay attention to it. I will wake up, wash my face and then dab the smallest amount of this gel onto the spot and then go ahead with my moisturizer and makeup. This little treatment is good for those pesky spots that stick out and sometimes form a whitehead. I find the Origins Spot Remover helps reduce the redness and size of the spot so by the time I come home it won't be as inflamed.

If I wake up with a really inflamed area on my face or a couple of spots in one area I will apply The La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo and let it sink into my skin for half an hour or so then get on with the rest of my face. I do think this works best alone without applying any other creams over it or if you are having a day at home you see quicker results than you would with makeup on. This really helps dry out those spots and reduce any redness they may have caused. I do also think this is good for those under the skin spots too but those take a bit more time to disappear.

If I can feel a spot forming just before I go to bed I will then take this opportunity to spend a bit more time with my skin. Once I have prepped my skin before bed I will then go ahead and apply my Acnecide Gel which was prescribed from the doctor to take with tablets that I will talk about in another blog post. You can get this gel in Boots and Superdrug too though. This gel is a little bit stronger than the other two treatments which is why it is good to use it before you go to sleep. I will use this gel on any spots I already have, ones that are appearing and even just on areas that are a bit red. I religiously use this every night even if I don't have any spots because I know it will help reduce any signs of them. This lotion is amazing for getting rid of all kinds of spots and redness, which is why I believe this treatment in particular has had the biggest effect on my skin.

What spot treatments do you swear by??

  1. It's nice to see a post like this because most spot treatments I've tried have failed me miserably so this was good for me :)

  3. Great post, I love the Alpha PH Liquid Gold I find this clears up my worst breakouts (at that time of the month) quickly and effectively. I really notice a difference in the general appearance of my skin as well. Thanks for sharing x

  7. I had acne for so many years and I found the Origins was one of the only things that cleared up my spots really quickly overnight. Effaclair never really worked for me as well, but I'm so glad it helps you!

    1. So glad Origins worked for you! I am a huge fan of their face masks too. I have a love/hate relationship with the Duo, most of the time it removes scars but sometimes it doesn't

  8. I love Effaclar Duo + and have been using that since I first bought it maybe two years ago. I've recently tried some of Avene's similar products and they're good too. I do also have a cream on prescription for when things get really bad but I don't like using that unless I have to because it's a bit nasty and can burn me if I'm not careful x
