Spot treatments aren't particularly glamorous but they're a bathroom shelf must. It happens to all of us — you've got a party or a wedding (where you haven't seen the people going for, like, ever) or an interview when you want to feel your most impressive and flawless self, and you wake up with a spot. Damn. That's where acne treatments can be a total saviour. That, and knowing how to pop a spot (like a pro-dermatologist).
Most important — don't stress (and probably don't touch it, as it will make it worse). Depending on whether you've got a few days to sort it out, in which case read the best advice we've ever heard for getting rid of a spot, apply one of these hero spot treatment products and actually see results in just a few hours. Alternatively, if you think gel face in the office isn't o-k (we're not so sure), apply one of the over night blemish treatments to help soothe, heal and tackle the redness, and also help avoid future break-outs.
