Why: Miracle? Yes, I promise. The other day I started to notice a hard, painful bump growing under the skin, which I knew was going to manifest itself as an awfully large, ugly zit in a day's time. Remembering the cardinal laws of beauty (thou shalt not touch your face and thou shalt not squeeze pimples unless they're really ready to explode), I waited patiently for the gunk to rise to the surface.
Come judgement day I had no choice but to perform a little mini-surgery and clear the soon-to-be-active volcano.
Luckily, I had a miracle in my beauty bin — Aveda's 2% salcylic acne spot treatment. From the moment I operated, I applied hourly doses directly to the spot. Not only did it nip swelling stat, but it reduced redness and healed the blemish completely by the end of the day. What was a travesty at 9 a.m. was invisible by happy hour.
