The Best Spot Creams On The Market To Zap Away Those Zits

Having spots is totally normal but that doesn't mean it's not annoying!

Being a teenager is hard. Emotionally and physically you feel changes within yourself, one of those changes, and possibly the most annoying of them all, is spots.

Popping up on your face, back, chest, and sometimes other places too, it’s totally normal to experience and something that’s a rite of passage for many of us. I myself dealt with acne in my late teens, and again in my mid-twenties (love that for me), and while I’m totally comfortable in my own skin, and urge you to see the beauty in yourself too, I of course want to do what I can to keep those pesky zits at bay when they start appearing.

While quick and easy spot treatments like toothpaste and sudocrem do the job in an emergency situation (spots just love to pop up the night before a big event, don’t they?!), investing in a good spot treatment might just be your best bet to ensure that you can get ahead of the spots as soon as you feel that bubbling away under the surface.

Rather than just drying out your skin, many treatments specifically for blemishes can help to minismise the redness and appearance of them, while also killing them off. However, it should be noted that if your skin is impacting your confidence and mental health, and at-home treatments don’t seem to be working in combating them, you should book an appointment with your GP to talk through other available treatment options, specially catered to you and your needs.

Below we’ve rounded up some of the best spot treatments available on the market, so you can say buh bye to pesky blemishes.
