Re: Works fast

Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment did nothing for me.

Re: Works fast

neither did anything for me either . What helped the most was going to the dermatologist. I know a lot of people will say diet helps, but you won't see immediate improvements.

Re: Works fast

For blemishes, which OTC product works? Help! I have an important event to go to this Sunday and i need these blemishes to disappear quickly . I been seeing my dermo but occasionally though. They seem to come and go. And i'm tired of spending on expensive prescriptions.

Re: Works fast

Use the aspirin mask! It works better and faster than any over-the-counter treatment. I read about it on the this board; if you do a word search for aspirin mask on the Acne board, you'll find a lot of discussion about it.

I bought a bottle of 500 plain uncoated aspirin for $3.00. I put some aspirin in a bowl and put just a dab of hot water on them (as little water as possible ... just enough to make the aspirin wet). The result is a gritty paste. I scrub my face with it and then leave it on for a while. It may start to flake off as it dries but I try to sit or lie down during that time -- or at least not to move around too much. Then I use warm water to scrub the mask again and rinse it off.

My skin is so soft afterward. Any pimples are MUCH smaller and disappear after a few of these treatments. With time, the aspirin mask also lightens acne scars.

You can also leave a big dab of this on any pimples to really dry them up overnight.

Additional thoughts:

1. This works best with totally uncoated aspirin; the cheapest generic kind you can find is the best.

2. Some people use witch hazel or rubbing alcohol instead of hot water to mix with the aspirin.

3. I use 15-20 aspirin at a time, but some people use as little as 3-4 aspirin. It all depends on how much skin you want to cover.

4. It works great on my neck and hands too.

5. I leave it on for 20-30 minutes, although some people leave it on for as little as 5-10 minutes.

6. Some people are allergic to aspirin and shouldnt use this mask.

Re: Works fast

I also use the aspirin mask and find it works well. But If I have a particular problem spot, after the aspirin mask, I put a dab of Queen Helene Mint Julup Mask on the pimple before I go to sleep and leave it on overnight. I find that it helps dry the pimple out rather quickly.

Re: Works fast

Where can I find an Asprin mask? Is it in stores or what? And also, what can I put on my face before putting a SPF 15 moisturizer(doesn't clog pores) on in the morning to treat my entire face to prevent blemishes from forming in inside my pores? HELP AGAIN!

Re: Works fast

Getting through, I posted everything about the aspirin mask on this thread yesterday morning. Go to page 1 and you'll see my long post.
