Touch wood/cross my fingers/anything else that’ll give me luck, I do seem to be mostly breakout free at the moment, with just the one spot currently on its last legs on my chin, so long may that continue as it’s a little bit awesome! For those who suffer from spots here and there or occasional breakouts, a drying lotion is an essential for your kit. These are hardcore, thick, pungent, usually white, liquids that you apply over the spot and leave overnight. You dip a cotton bud into the pot, then apply the treatment directly to your spot. Nothing is getting in or out once this liquid has dried in place, so you will wake with a considerable smaller spot.
The Malin + Goetz is a great example of a well done drying lotion. It contains 10% Sulfur and Zinc Oxide which together work to kill off any bacteria and inflammation quickly and effectively – I would be very surprised if anyone has used this and not seen a noticeable improvement in the morning. The downside is that it’s very obvious, so if you get a knock on the door before you’ve had a chance to wipe it off in the morning, you might get some funny looks, especially if you’re suffering from a breakout and have dotted the treatment all over your face. It’s very well priced at £16.50 as this tiny pot will last you forever – link.
