Ditch the Zit

You can't control getting a zit, but you can do something about it when the damn thing pops up. Whatever you do, resist the urge to pop it. It'll only make it bigger, redder, stronger. Instead, apply a salicylic acid treatment, like the transparent gel by Beverly Hills-based skin care company Leaf & Rusher. And if you really need to get rid of the redness for say, a big meeting or first date, then dab on a little hydrocortisone cream.
