Lo and behold, the dreaded zit. Everybody, at some point in their lives, is bound to go through the agony of surviving a pimple in all its different stages. Undoubtedly, we all have our own ways of fighting them. Some people let it run its course. However, we prefer to get rid of it as soon as possible — especially if you have an important presentation or lovely date to attend. Those on the ball already know what we're talking about; the dynamic duo of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide as active ingredients. They are fantastic for treating blemishes caused by clogged pores as well as killing bacteria that causes inflammation respectively. However, for many of us, these chemicals alone can be too harsh on our skin, thus causing the dreaded dryout. And so, we've curated a list of effective acne spot treatments that tackle breakouts quickly without stripping your skin of its natural moisture in the process. Time to make your mark — one spot at a time.
