Please share your spot tips...

While most of us aren't 'spotty', I'm sure that all of us get the odd spot here and there on our face.
In my case, I go out clubbing every saturday, and I usually get one or two spots appearing on my face every sunday (I've noticed this, maybe because of all of the smoke and dirt of last nights clubbing). That gives me 6 days to get rid of my spots until I go clubbing again (I don't mind having a spot during the week, or when I go cinema/bowling etc). Is there anyway that I can speed up the healing process of the spot, or anyway that I can make the spot a whitehead quicker, so that I can pop it. Also, if you have any other spot tips, can you please share them.

    I used to put babys nappy rash cream on a spot just before I went to bed, that used to work a treat.

    After you get in from the club cleanse your face either with a cleaners lotion or a facial wash like Clearasil, although supermarkets own brands work just as well and are cheaper!

    You should also moisturise depending on your skin type.

    Other tips? Drink lots of water during the week because it flushes toxins out of your skin.
    Make you you get enough vitamins aswell, think about taking some supplements perhaps?

    a home facial (not the sexual one, thank you very much for corrupting my poor inocent mind) is...

    filling the sink with steaming hot water. cover the sink with a towel and put your face next to the steam, this opens your pores. keep that for about 10 minutes. after that wash your face with whatever face soap you want to use, it reall doesn't matter. after that, put some type of astrengent or pore cleaning pads, (anything with salicylic acid should be fine) let it sit to let your skin absorbe it all, then rinse your face with cold water to close your pores. dry and put on some type of lotion.

    i have found this to work for me at least.

    Try washing your face with salt water, and then putting germoline cream on the spot. That's what I do and it works a treat, works better than oxy and other spot creams :)
