Solution: Take a few deep breaths: breathe in through your nose for four seconds (filling your belly with air), hold it for seven seconds, and then, pursing your lips like you're going to kiss someone, blow all of your air out through your mouth for eight seconds. This helps reduce your heart rate and stress level. After you've calmed yourself down, grab an acne clearing gel containing 1 percent salicylic acid and pat it onto your trouble spot twice a day until your breakout goes away. Try Clinique Acne Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel.
Solution: If you're often too tired to actually make the effort to wash your face with a facial cleanser and water, keep a packet of cleansing towelettes on your nightstand to keep your pores clear and blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples at bay. Try Olay Fresh Effects S'Wipe Out Refreshing Makeup Removal Cloths, which cleanse and moisturize in one wipe.
