It happens to everyone. You’re excited. After weeks of flirting, he finally asks you out. You prepared everything, a new outfit, a new lip gloss, but you didn’t prepare for what was to come.
You wake up the morning of the big day, and what do you find? A huge, no disgusting zit! What are you to do?
Your body can be vindictive sometimes. Follicles in your body can get blocked resulting in accumulation of oil under the skin.
Pimples can then grow from these accumulations. Lucky for us there are many heat-spot treatments in the market today. They promise to rid of your worst blemish in days or hours.
Avene Cleanance Spot Treatment
The France based Eau Thermale Avene claim to fame is of its use of pure and pristine spring water in all its product. When it comes to heat-spot treatment, nothing beats Avéne Cleanance heat-spot Treatment for discreteness.
It is easily applied thanks to the pencil-formed bottle, allowing you to quickly and precisely apply the treatment to your worst pimples. It works by drying the absorbing excess sebum.
This supports the elimination of imperfections. For those with sensitive skin, it is preservative-free, fragrance-free and allows heat-spot therapy with hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic properties.
If you get confused by words with too many syllables like I do, non-comedogenic means that the cream won’t clog your pores.
The cream comes in a 25g bottle that is priced at $19.95 a bottle. It can be used multiple times a day. It is restricted to a younger skin (though not as young as 3 years old).
The product not only helps with the redness associated with pimples but also works as a sort of primer. It provides a great barrier between your body and make-up that prevents even more irritation.
It helps rid of spots quite fast but it is most useful when you see the beginnings of a pimple. In this case, a slight dab of Avéne Cleanance Spot Therapy will help you avoid the pimple altogether.
Proactiv Solution Advanced Blemish Spot Treatment
Proactiv became famous by its many endorsements by famous actors and singer such as Jessica Simpson. We can see why, with the Proactiv Blemish Control Stick.
It contains 1.8% Salicylic acid to help target and minimize individual blemishes. Unlike many other heat-spot removers, it removes spots with very little waiting period. It even works as a great preventative.
For a 1.8mL stick you’ll pay about $25. It can be used multiple times a day. It works for all types.
We like the easy- to-use slim casing that goes on those pesky spots with no time. You can carry it around all day and applying it without anyone noticing. The Proactiv Blemish Control Stick dries invisible so no one even knows that you’re wearing it.
Burt’s Bees Acne Targeted Spot Treatment
The 2014 Elle International Beauty Awards Winner, Burt’s Bees Anti-Blemish Targeted Spot Treatment, is not only something that works but is gentle on the skin.
Its all-natural formula is clinically proven to help reduce the appearance of blemishes in 48 hours.
Tea tree, Calendula, Yarrow, and Parsey extracts help calm and reduce while Borage Extract promotes healthy body. It is Noncomedogenic and Dermatolist Tested.
It is by far one of the most economic choices at $10.00. You can use a Q-tip to help put the liquid form on your spots. It can be applied mornings and nights.
We like the soft way it leaves your skin. It calms all redness especially if you’re prone to popping your pimples. It also has a great aroma that makes you want to use it more.
The liquid form means that it is easily applied under make-up, making it ultra invisible. Make sure to follow with a healthy diet, exercise, and plenty of water.
You’ll end up with the best of skin. The applicator is also another advantage. While other creams may have roller ball applicators or similar that can also spread the bacteria to a different part of your face, Burt’s Bees easy dropper allows you to directly apply the liquid on the irritated area.
Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Spot Treatment Gel
Coming in the form of a gel, Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Gel is what many may call “the best spot therapy they ever used” It is a clear gel heat-spot treatment that works fast to rid of all your worst spots.

Its great for midday issues because the thin gel easily lays underneath make-up undetected. While the bottle may seem small, it can last for 4 months making it well worth the money. It works best for the emerging pimple and can be quite a powerful answer to your acne.
