There’s a laundry list of triggers that can cause random skin breakouts and an even longer list of ways to try to abolish frustrating blemishes. Still, while noninvasive treatments and DIY concoctions can sometimes prove effective, few solutions get the job done instantaneously.
And while we’d obviously love to erase zits with the snap of a finger, we’re realistic, and we know that’s impossible. So what’s the next best thing to getting results in a flash? A spot treatment. Most of these topical concoctions are made with a super-concentrated amount of blemish-fighting ingredients (like salicylic acid and tea tree oil) that will reduce the size of a pimple in a couple of hours or overnight — something that can prove very useful when you’re dealing with stressed-out skin.
Ahead, we’ve gathered the best fast-acting spot treatments for your choosing. Shop our favorites and find your new go-to.
