The Secret To Clearing A Pimple Overnight!

We all have pesky pimples that pop up at the worst times possible. It could be before picture day, a big meeting at work, date, even a big event. There is no amount of makeup or giant hairstyle that you could do to distract from that red bump on your face. Trust me, I have been there. Luckily, I have a trick that will save your skin!


The Murad Clarifying Mask is a lifesaver when it comes to a surprise spot on your face. The directions recommend to apply all over the face for 10-15 minute, then wash off with warm water. I find applying it all over the skin can be extremely drying. To prevent the over drying of unaffected areas, I apply the mask as a spot treatment over the blemish or blemishes and leave it on overnight while I sleep. When you wake up the next morning, the pimple is near to gone, and you won’t even be able to tell that something was there.

**Disclaimer: I am not a dermatologist or skincare expert. I am passing on this information to you, as it has helped me in the past. Make sure to talk to a skincare professional or doctor before trying any new products. We all have different types of skin and sensitivities, so it’s important to talk to an expert before to make sure that this will also be a right option for you!

Below I inserted the information and link to the Sephora page where all the product information and reviews are listed!

What it is:
A weekly treatment for acne-prone skin featuring a natural, clay-based formula to reduce irritation and minimize breakouts.

What it is formulated to do:
Clarifying Mask absorbs pore clogging dirt and oil as it draws out impurities. Its natural, clay-based formula reduces irritation and minimizes breakouts while sulfur decreases acne’s severity as it encourages skin to clear. Zinc oxide and licorice root extract work together to soothe, comfort, and calm skin. Kolin clay regulates oil production and diminishes shine. The must-have mask is an excellent treatment to help relieve both redness and breakouts as part of Dr. Murad’s Inclusive Health® system of care.

At A Glance: My Face Products

Unknown-1 Unknown-2 Unknown-3 Unknown-4 Unknown-5 Unknown-6 Unknown

I’ve constantly revised my face products and foundation routine over the years and never stick to the same product for more than a month. However, at the moment, I have found a combination that works with my combination skin and provides moisture and oil control during these odd winter months.

  1. I always prep with my Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer. It has SPF and is a moisturizer that actual works for me and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy under makeup.
  2. I’ll spray some Fix Plus, to freshen and add a bit more moisture to the skin, and to fill in pores and create a smooth canvas, I use my Makeup Forever Step One Smoothing Primer.
  3. For foundation, I’ll apply a complete layer of my Makeup Forever HD Foundation with a beauty sponge. The concealer I use is the  Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer, and I set it with my Makeup Forever HD Powder.
  4. To add color, I use my favorite drug store bronzer, which is the NYC Mosaic Bronzing Powder. And for blush, I go in with Tarte’s 12 hour Blush in Dollface.
