TAKE THREE... BLEMISH BUSTERSNormaderm Hyaluspot, €10 Vichy, available from selected pharmacies nationwide
This works as a preventative measure as well as a great healing treatment. Much like a cold-sore cream, you just apply it on your skin at the first sign that a spot is on its way. Great price, great product.Prodigal Pen, RRP €19.95 Sampar, available in selected Marks & Spencer stores nationwide and from marksandspencer.ie
This rather small but impressive pen is laced with essential oils and other skin-benefiting ingredients that will heal that unsightly spot in record time. Although the product can probably be applied both under and over make-up, I find that spot treatments are best put on the skin at night, when they can be left to work their magic without any disturbances.Acne Blemish
Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment, €37.99 Kiehls, available in their boutiques at 35 Wicklow Street, D2, in Dundrum Town Centre and Arnotts
A friend of mine who is obsessed with her skin insisted that I try this a few months ago, following a rare but raging breakout. Within a day, the redness had subsided, the spot had shrunk and the surface of the offending crater had improved dramatically, allowing me to apply concealer.
