Best Spot Treatment

What is everyone's favorite spot treatment? I personally like Queen Helen's Mint Julep mask.

I ask because I have a very big pimple forming under the skin and I am not sure what I should do for it. For I now, I have not picked or squeezed at it. Should I ice it? Aspirin Mask? 10% Benzoal Peroxide?

I know someone once posted about a specific product that all there girl friends swear by. I can't remember the website though.

What can I do to start drying this thing up?!?!?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Best Spot Treatment

i recommend Aspirin Mask first, then use some sort of Benzoyl Peroxide/Triclosan/Chamomile sort of compound overnight that should sort any pimple out..
Prometheus is really cool, so is sweetjade, they all know theyre stuff and have given me ever growing confidence with acne.

Re: Best Spot Treatment

Give your Mint Julep a kick and add some crushed aspirin to it... its the best Overnight spot treatment ever! I use the regular aspirin mask 2-3 times a week too... that helps alot.

Re: Best Spot Treatment

I have actually been using Aspirin on this pimple as a spot treatment and I think it is working! I also used persa-gel on it for a couple of hours then washed it off, as recommended by someone on another board. I don't want to jinx it but the pimple seems to be drying and does not hurt anymore.

Anyone else have any advice? Thanks everyone.
