Glamour Tip

Do you need a blemish gone by the weekend but you're completely out of acne spot treatment?

Here's a quick fix: apply a dab of basic white toothpaste (paste, not gel, and not the whitening type as they contain stronger chemicals) to cleansed spot before going to bed. It will dry out the blemish and get the cycle over more quickly. In the morning it should be much less noticeable. If it's still bright red, try placing a Visine soaked cotton ball on it for a few minutes and it should, well, get the red out! If you still see redness and have an important event to attend, try dabbing the spot with a little eyebrow pencil — you'll have an instant beauty mark and no more blemish.
