This technique works for me on isolated red spots on any part of the face (but not near the eyes or not full blown acne)- try it out and see!

You will need the following:
  • Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Spot Wand £3.59 here
  • Boots Seventeen Miracle Matt concealer £3.99 (cream one in a stick) here Buy one even if it's not your skin tone this stuff heals spots and is amazing!                                                                            (I'm olive skinned and use the Medium shade for ref I use BB warm sand foundation)
Currently these are on a 2 for 3 offer at Boots.

The order in which you use these products will depend on whether you match the Seventeen concealer stick. Unfortunately there are only 3 shades available extra fair, fair & medium.

If you do match the concealer then rub some over the spot and wear during the day. To avoid the spread of bacteria it's best to use a concealer brush dedicated to this spot/spots. Do not use the same concealer brush to conceal dark circles over the eyes unless you want a lovely big spot there as well (so many Youtube beauty gurus do this which makes me yell noooooo! at my laptop screen.) Swipe the brush over the stick and apply on the spot. If you haven't got a brush to hand that's fine just wipe the stick over. Maybe cut the end off with a knife to keep the concealer stick clean.
At night time use the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel stick, apply the clear gel end that it labelled Day. (This is the only end I have found effective.) To avoid the spread of bacteria it's best to use a cotton bud to swipe over the spot. Then go to bed. Repeat twice over 48 hours you should see an improvement,

If you can't find a concealer stick in your shade don't worry.
Firstly use the Tea tree and Hazel spot wand- the clear end and wear during the day. At nigh time use the concealer stick over the spot. Repeat twice over 48 hours you should see an improvement,
