You'd think I'd be a wee bit on the old side to be writing about getting rid of pimples since I'm usually writing about getting rid of wrinkles. Life isn't fair! How can I possibly be cursed with both?
Actually, the occasional hormonal pimple isn't much of a problem anymore now that I've found Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion. This stuff is an amazing concoction of some magical pink sediment and a liquid of salicylic acid and isopropyl alcohol. You just dip a Q-Tip in the pink part and dab it on the offending zit. Then you go to bed (preferably in the dark so that your bed-partner doesn't see the pink dots on your face.) The next morning you wash off the remaining product and voila! you have obliterated the red bump. The drying lotion works particularly well if you catch the pimple as soon as it begins. If its been around a day or two, it might take more than one night to reduce it completely.
You can find Mario Badescu at Ross Cosmetics in Highland Park, Illinois for a discounted price of $17. Their website is www.rosscosmetic.com. Mario Badescu products are also available direct from NY by phone order. That number is (800)BADESCU.
I hope you like this product even if you don't feel like a teenager again!
