chasing zits

It's bad enough that I have to battle both wrinkles AND acne at the same time. Now, it seems the zits have developed a mind of their own. I started using a zit zapper a few month ago and, for the most part, it seems to work pretty well. At least, it seems to stop them in their tracks and shorten their lifespans.

A few days ago, I started treating a spot that looked as if it could go on to become a zit-zilla if left to its own devices. The zapper did its job and that particular spot stopped growing and started shrinking. But tonight I found its clone near my nose. I can almost hear the evil laughter, "Ha ha! You thought you stopped me! But I cannot be contained. Resistance is futile!" I still used the zapper and now I'm waiting to see where the zits will strike next.

*I should clarify that the "zapper" I use is an OTC gel.

Just ran across this in one of my helpful hints file, I've never tried it:

Honey remedy for skin blemishes . cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.

Hmmmmm...honey and a zit zapper. I'll have to try them both!
