How To Find Your Skin Control Product Soulmate
Most people think of all zits as one of the same, but that’s actually pretty far from the truth. It’s true that all pimples suck, but in order to get rid of them as swiftly as possible (and with minimal scarring), you need to know exactly what you’re dealing with.
From whitehead-zapping pimple patches to blackhead-eliminating adhesive pore strips, we’re breakdown down your perfect Skin Control product as dictated by your breakouts below.

Blackheads are annoying – we get it. That’s why we invented our Blackhead Blaster: a targeted treatment that extracts built-up dirt, oil, and dead skin right before your eyes.
Simply use the Cleansing Sheet first to soften the nose area, before going in with the Extracting Sheet. Gently peel off after 15 minutes and marvel at the gunk that comes out. Our Blackhead Blaster comes in Tea Tree, or Extra Strength with Witchhazel.
So the number one rule with whiteheads is not to pick at them! And the easiest way to resist? Bury it under either a Skin Control Pimple Patch, or our Blemish Banish Drying Liquid. A Pimple Patch will absorb fluid (tick) and keep the spot clean (double tick) whereas the Drying Lotion contains calamine, tea tree and salicylic acid to dry things out and reduce swelling. Try an AM Pimple Patch during the day, and the Blemish Banish while you snooze.

Cysts are a little trickier because they lurk beneath the skin’s surface. What you need is a long-term routine with products that will exfoliate and keep the pores clear, like the Skin Control Breakout Bar. Made with salicylic acid, charcoal and tea tree, regular use will help to reduce oil and blockages that can lead to cysts. If your cyst comes to a head (and you’ll know if it does), keep it clean and dry under a Skin Control Pimple Patch. Repeat the process until it shrinks.
*If you experience recurring cysts, be sure to speak to your doctor or dermatologist about long-term treatment options.

Rough, bumpy pimples cramping your style? The Skin Control Breakout Bar acts as a mild exfoliant, so will unclog pores, remove dead surface cells and smooth out your complexion. Just be sure to follow up with a simple, lightweight moisturiser.
