Picking at a blemish will no doubt result in a red, irritated mess!
What to do to lessen the magnified blemish?
For starters, ice it down. The cold helps to reduce both redness and swelling caused from picking at a blemish. Apply an ice cube directly to the blemish and leave on for 10 minutes.
Then, you must apply a blemish treatment appropriate for the type of blemish you get.
For cystic blemishes—those hard, sore underground bumps under the skin, apply Renée Rouleau Anti-Cyst Treatment. This helps to dissolve and disperse the hard lump of infection deep within the skin for a quicker recovery time…
For surface, infected blemishes— traditional zits that do come to the surface with a whitehead, apply Renée Rouleau Night Time Spot Lotion loaded with Camphor, Sulfur and Zinc Oxide.
For use under makeup—apply Renée Rouleau Daytime Blemish Gel which acts as an invisible seal over the blemish to not only reduce redness and heal the blemish, but to also create smooth finish so the bump is less visible, plus it keeps makeup and environmental debris away from the blemish.
