Is it possible to quickly get rid of rashes in a day or one night? Our answer is: possible! The main thing is to choose a suitable local remedy for inflammation. It can be with salicylic acid, tea tree oil, or another proprietary formulation of the brand. We asked cosmetologist and nutritionist Christina Busse (@estet_busse) how such products work and why it is important to read their instructions before using.

PS This article deals specifically with the appearance of one or two inflammations, and not acne all over the face, which needs to be treated by specialists.

– Local remedies for the treatment of inflammation are a lifesaver for people who suffer from single rashes for various reasons. Even if the patient has been treating acne with antibiotic therapy and is now on maintenance therapy, I always recommend using topical cosmetics.

Firstly, local remedies affect all the mechanisms of acne development: they regulate the sebaceous gland, cleanse pores, relieve inflammation, providing an antibacterial effect. Secondly, they perfectly heal the wound, relieve redness if you squeeze out a pimple, and prevent post-acne. It is important that some have a corrective tone, allowing you to safely mask the inflammation.

In the composition of such funds there are all the necessary components for quick relief of problem skin.

Topical anti-inflammatories can be used alone or in combination with other anti-acne products.

But before applying, be sure to read the instructions: some products, with frequent use during the day, can provoke peeling in the application area. I do not see the rest of the minuses. The only point: the same remedy for two different people may not fit or work not so quickly, therefore, as in all care, we are always looking for our “miracle cure”.

The editorial staff of BeautyHack.ru agrees with the beautician and cannot suggest one gel or cream that will relieve the rash in a day. But here are a few local SOS tools we’ve tested that help us and our friends. We hope you can find a suitable option from this list.

Breakout Control Targeted Blemish Spot Treatment, Kiehl’s

The product in a 10 ml bottle does not contain fragrances and parabens. The main ingredient is sulfur in a high concentration (10%). Sulfur, we note, belongs to one of the three natural minerals for acne treatment, it has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, regulates the activity of the sebaceous glands. It also contains vitamin B3, which protects the skin from flaking and dryness, softening and restoring it.

Price: 2960 rub.

Hyseac, Ureage

SOS paste with a composition that is impressive too! The manufacturers have added, it seems, all possible ingredients with an antiseptic and healing effect: tea tree oil extract, green clay, 10% talc, 20% zinc oxide. The product needs to be applied locally to the area of ​​inflammation, it promises to make the complexion perfectly even overnight.

Price: 1280 rub.

Tea Tree, The Body Shop

This SOS tea tree oil is a bestseller in The Body Shop and has a lot of positive reviews on the brand’s website. We like that the gel is easy to use: you don’t have to squeeze it onto your fingers, the bottle has an applicator. Another bonus in favor of the product: the manufacturer purchases the main ingredient from the Kenyan cooperative KOOFA in Kenya, where farmers manually select the best leaves of the plant, and the oil is produced by steam distillation. The oil is 100% environmentally friendly, which is especially important for problem skin.

Price: 560 rub.

Effaclar Al, La Roche-Posay

Effaclar Al Topical Corrector can be used before makeup (very handy if you see inflammation in the morning!). Among the ingredients is a combination of Piroctone-Olamine and Glycosil, which suppresses bacterial activity; vitamin PP, which has a regenerating property; patented active ingredient LHA (Lipo-Hydroxy-Acid) for gentle exfoliation; thermal water La Roche-Posay, which activates the process of cell regeneration.

Price: 1560 rub.

Super Spot Remover, Origins

The gel against skin imperfections will be appreciated by any cosmetologist: it contains salicylic acid (1.5%), which is just used to treat inflammation and acne. We recommend using this remedy on the entire face every day only after consulting a specialist, but applying it locally to inflammation with a cotton swab is definitely an excellent option.

Price: 1350 rub.
