ACNE – it’s not just a brand -, it’s a real life issue. Even as adults, mild acne, blemishes, and pimples can pop up at any given moment – especially under stress. And they always seem to drop by at the worst times – like right before that interview, or the day of a special event when you know your picture is going to be taken. Front row center, the middle of your forehead, or (gasp) your nose – so what can we post-pubescents do about those pesky bumps? The Manual has a few suggestions for anyone in need of an emergency spot treatment.
TURO SKIN Anti-Acne Spot Treatment packs a punch. It’s potent, fast acting, and will minimize breakouts immediately by exfoliating the area and then penetrating your skin with potent salicylic acid, which can be found in many prescription acne medications. This non-oily treatment leaves a matte-finish. It’s also hypoallergenic (so it won’t cause any more issues than you already have).
