Beauty Buzz. Zap Blemishes Instantly!

July 27, 2010 • Beauty


Adult acne is one of the most common skincare concerns of women who've surpassed puberty. All hope is not lost, however, because now more than ever, the selections of creams, antibiotics, serums, and ointments are plentiful and easily accessible. Since most skincare regimens are not classified as ‘one size fits all’, half the battle is finding which products work best for you and your skin type.

The good news? Cortisone, a steroid hormone that generally reduces inflammation, pain and swelling, can be used to stop a daunting pimple right in its tracks! By dabbing just a bit of this potent ingredient on the affected area anywhere from 1-3 times daily, you can reduce the size of the pimple significantly. Have an important event and need assistance right away? Your dermatologist can administer a cortisone shot, which will shrink the blemish within 24 hours. You can also use cortisone to aid in fading any spots that the zit leaves behind. Also make sure you're loading up on sunscreen, because dark spots will become even darker in the sun if you're not wearing sufficient sun protection.

Let's salud to a healthier and clearer complexion!
