Adult Blemish Busting

One of the lies that we're told during puberty is that complexion problems will all be over when you you're older. But many people I know in their mid-twenties are still afflicted with the occasional to frequent blemishes. I don't recommend digging out your old tube of Clearasil. Time to move onto the adult treatments!

The Roll-On Blemish Attack by Ole Henriksen is supposed to be in every model's over-sized purse and is only $22. It has not one, but three ingredients that help clear up your skin!

Origins Spot Remover has been a staple of professionals forever. It's super gentle, your face won't peel off, and it actually helps prevents the dark spot that stays on your face after the blemish is gone!

There's a reason that Proactiv is so popular... it usually works. Of course, it didn't work for me, but most people tell me I'm the exception to the rule. You can get the cleanser, toner and treatment for $40, or a 30 day trial for just $20. I recommend the trial just in case you are also an exception.
If you're more of a drugstore kinda gal, I would place your bets on Neutrogena, which was recommended to me by a dermatologist when I was a teen. But since then I've taken the prescription Accutane and have never looked back!
