Date night/wedding/graduation/any Instagrammable coming up? Here’s a shortlist of #thenicolecodeapproved emergency Zit Zappers that are sure to get rid of or at the very least reduce the size of your enemies.

Babe Laboratories

How to Use- Apply thin layer on blemish up to 3 times a day.

 

(I also included the picture of the Clearex 10 because I got that from Ebeano and it’s the same thing as the persagel. Directions to use are the same as above. Price- N1100)

Pure Tea Tree Oil

How To Use- Pour a few drops onto a cotton bud, gently dab into the blemish. Do this up to three times a day.

 

Skin Type- Combination/Oily

 

 

More sensitive skins could dilute with water before applying. Tea tree oil is pretty good with flattening cysts FYI.

 

 

La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I

 

Active Ingredients- Niacinamide

 

Price-

 

Skin Type- all skin types

 

How To Use- Apply on imperfection up to 4 times a day.

 

 

Personally, I am a benzoyl peroxide girl. Nothing speeds up the exit of a spot or halts it in its tracks quite like it for me. However, it can be super harsh on sensitive skin, so #thenicolecoderecommends starting with a lower strength like 2.5% or 5% if you have never used BP before. And using sparingly too.

 

 

You are guaranteed to find something that works on this list as it covers pretty much all skin types- but did I miss out any zit zappers that should have made this list? Have you tried any of these products?

 

 

Let me know,

Nicole

  1. There’s a simple and effective way to deal with cystic and all other forms of acne. Acne sufferers hate prescription because they come with side-effects and often take time to deliver results. Just use “Niapads”, available on Amazon USA or Amazon Canada. Shipped worldwide via Amazon USA. All you do is take a pad, wet with water and place it on acne. When dry, peel and rinse. Sit back and watch acne fade away.Helps diminish acne scars too. It really is that simple.
