So this time, the acne gods have decided to be kind to you and sent only a single spot instead of the four-five that appear every month. But a single pimple sometimes becomes more conspicuous that a face full of zits. During such times, what you need is a good spot treatment to target the solitary pimple which showed up uninvited. Here are some tried-and-tested spot treatment methods that you should try.
Bentonite clay: One of the best ways to dry out a pimple is to smother it with a layer of bentonite clay. Add a few drops of apple cider vinegar to make it pliable. You can add a drop of your favourite acne-fighting ingredient to up its zit-zapping powers.
Kasthuri haldi: Also known as amba haldi, kasthuri haldi is paler in colour compared to the culinary variety. But somehow, it works better than regular haldi for pimples. This one works best against the painful under-the-skin cystic acne.
Honey: As mild as it is, honey is also known for its anti-bacterial qualities. A small dab of honey over a pimple is all you need to see visible difference in the size the next day.
Menthol-based balms: This may sound crazy, but cough and cold balms that contain menthol and camphor is one of the best-kept beauty secrets that actually work. It not only stops a pimple from forming but also numbs the pain.
