Use Purell on Acne Breakouts

I am so excited to share this tip! I had an unwelcome middle aged pimple and wanted to cover it up before I went out. Usually when this happens I use an acne treatment, but it usually dries a little weird and plus I have sensitive skin. As I was pondering this at my vanity, my eyes fell upon the little travel size generic Purell on my table. Eureka! A clear antibacterial gel! Well, I dabbed it on that zit, it dried clear almost immediately and I was able to put concealer on it. And not only that it healed the pimple!! I have since been using this on blackheads that I find when I am brave enough to use the magnifying side of my mirror! It works great and soooo cheap!

I have done this too -- it really does work! More than once, I've "discovered" a pimple when I'm at work and don't have acess to anything else, being that the hand sanitizer is mostly alcohol, I thought, "What the heck?!?" So I tried it with great results, I've started doing this at home as well, because it worked so well -- best "spot treatment" for acne that I've ever tried!

I must try that! Thanks! I mostly use tea- tree oil which is good but more expensive and VERY strongly scented. :-)
