The Breakout Cure

Hey Friends,

So we talked about how to prevent pimples here, but now lets talk about once it’s too late and you already have one. I feel like this is something everyone is embarrassed to talk about, but lets be honest- we all get them. And EVERYONE hates them.

First off, let me start off by admitting that I am the absolute worst at following my own advice and leaving it alone to heal by itself, so lets just sweep right over that tip bc I know y’all aren’t going to follow it either.

Here is how to actually get rid of it….

Dry the sucker out. I absolutely love this product. Stick a cue-tip in the bottle (don’t shake) the liquid will look like it’s separated, but that’s how it’s supposed to be. When you pull the cue-tip out you’ll have a pepto-bismal looking substance on the end. Apply that directly to the zit. It may burn for a few seconds but that will subside.


I usually do this before bed and let it dry out overnight. But you could also apply when you’re just sitting around the house. Side note- I also use it as a preventative measure the second I see any sort of blackhead coming. Literally…. if I feel like I’m about to get a breakout, I smother this all over the area and leave it on as long as I possibly can. I swear by it- it usually clears any zit I have within 2 days.

In the past I would completely destroy a breakout by continuously picking at it which made it 10000x worse (we’ve all been there). So I promise if you listen to one thing I say- GET THIS CLAY.

  1. Hi there!

    Thank you so much! Absolutely- I’d say if you are having trouble focusing on your writing, try going to a coffee shop and putting in your headphones while you write. There are some great alternative playlists on Spotify that I like to listen to whenever I need to get work done but don’t want to sit in silence. Also just remember that your blog is your own personal space to be yourself, so never worry about your words coming out perfectly!

    Hope this helps. Feel free to reach out if you have any more questions!

  2. Hi there,

    No I do not do any manual coding when I write a blog post. After setting up my initial “theme” it’s pretty much just typing as normal. What platform are you using? I use WordPress and would recommend it for anyone starting a blog.

    best of luck!
