Acne can be a total pain in the face, not only do those pimples like to pop up at the most inconvenient time they also like to hang around and invite their friends. We’re all use to the jam face phenomenon of the teenage years, but when that phase doesn’t ‘phase out’ it times to take action.
Take celebrities, contrary to popular belief they too are humans, just like us, and are also predisposed to the temperamental flare ups, they just got good info on how to deal with them!

People in the public eye, who’s faces are their moneymakers, can’t hide away until a deep cystic blemish has vanished. These craters can last up to three weeks. When they feel the onset symptoms they can pop over to the dermatologist, get a quick shot of cortisone, drop $100 and the pus bucket will be gone by morning.
2. A high frequency wand
A celebrity aestheticians favourite as its super quick and easy to use. After extracting the blemishes the wand kills the bacteria that has been left behind to stop repeat offenders. That’d be five minutes and $20 please!

3. Topical medication
A cheaper alternative to doctor and dermatologist trips for cystic acne is using ethyl lactate to decrease the bacteria and reduce inflammation. You can purchase products in your local pharmacy – just ensure they include ethyl lactate.
4. Ice cubes
To reduce inflammation instantly press ice cubes on the affected area to decrease redness and pain.
5. Reduce lasting scars
Rouleau also suggests using products with glycolic acid to fade the scarring left behind after the blemishes are healed.
