My Magic Potion

Ever since mentioning that I have my own secret zit-diminishing formula on Michelle Money’s Bachelor gal spreecast, I’ve been getting asked to reveal the concoction’s ingredients. It’s not for small/medium surface pimples. My potion is specifically for the moment you feel a deep cyst lingering in your chin or cheek. If you don’t know this feeling of total dread, this mixture isn’t for you.

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 1.44.18 PM1) Ice the spot for at least 30 minutes. 2) Get a Ziplock bag and turn it inside out. 3) Squeeze an equal, pea-sized amount of the following: Cortizone-10 with aloe, Desitin (Yes, baby butt cream on your face. Zinc=miracles), Bacitracin Zinc Ointment, and a prescription…Mupirocin Cream. (You can tryScreen Shot 2015-03-28 at 1.45.05 PM to omit this and substitute with Neosporin.) 4) Mix the ingredients together. 5) Apply the mixture to the spot you feel the cyst. If it’s already emerged on the surface, it’s probably too late, but my be worth a try. Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 1.43.48 PM6) Place a small, round Band-Aid to seal the formula to your skin. 7) Turn your Ziplock bag right side out and seal the formula for the next use.

I used to run around the Bachelor mansion applying this stuff on the girls’ faces. I’ll be honest, it depends on the person, but at least 50% of the Bachelorettes saved themselves from a boulder pimple.

When it comes to non-cystic pimples… I use 10% benzoyl peroxide cream on cheek pimples and let pimples on the chin area to resolve on their own with my nightly Retin-A application.

    Thanks for the tip! I know the feeling… life can be so unfair sometimes, acne and pimples are supposed to be a teen thing!

    I never knew this about Zinc! I got a huge cystic pimple on my chin last year when we went on vacation for our wedding anniversary, worst thing ever!
