Guide Picks - Top 5 Medicated Overnight Treatments
When daily treatments aren't enough, or when you want to get rid of a blemish quickly, overnight (or spot) treatments can be effective additions to your acne fighting arsenal. These products deliver a concentrated dose of acne killing active ingredients, be they natural or medicated, directly to existing or emerging blemishes. You put these products directly on troubled areas and leave them on anywhere between 30 minutes to all night long. They work quickly to seal the effected area and give it a mega dose of treatment. These products are very concentrated and should be used as spot treatments only. You can use them as soon as you feel a zit coming on by applying the product directly on the blemish. For this purpose, medicated and all natural products are equally effective. Essential oils are also effective spot treatments. Take a look at our top 5 picks for medicated overnight acne blasters.
1) Acne Dry Spot
This night time treatment will noticeably shrink existing blemishes while you sleep. Just dab it on effected areas before bed and wake up to clearer skin.
