The best spot treatments for blemishes are either drying products or antiseptic products.

Drying products will help shrink pimples so that they heal faster.

Antibacterial products help to fight acne-causing germs. They can also help to prevent a pimple from becoming infected, and this helps to reduce acne scarring.

Healing pimples fast helps to prevent acne scarring.

The best spot treatment acne products either contain,

  • benzoyl peroxide, such as my Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cream, which is medicated to be both drying and antibacterial for the acne-causing bacteria P. acnes,
  • or are antiseptic, such as my Acne Treatment Pads, which contain salicylic acid that can penetrate deeply into an oily pore.
