I think we all know how it feels to wake up one morning and discover a blemish the size of Mount Rushmore lurking somewhere on our visage, whether it's on our forehead, the corner of our mouth or right in the middle of our chin. And even when everyone around you claims, "It's not as noticeable as you think -- I can barely even see it!", you just can't bring yourself to believe them. Unfortunately I was struck by one such blemish this week! I tried every home and store-bought remedy possible -- icing it, putting a wet teabag on it, applying toothpaste overnight, massaging in redness-reducing cream. Nothing seemed to work!
And then my brother suggested Neosporin. "Put some on it and leave it alone for awhile," he said. And you know what? IT WORKED!! While the unsightly eyesore has not completely disappeared, it's definitely gone down in size and noticeability.
Neosporin First Aid Antibiotic Ointment retails for $6 at drugstore.com.
