BEST BEAUTY ADVICE To avoid irritation, opt for gentle exfoliators like Nude Facial Scrub ($52; nudeskin care.com), with skin-buffing beads, or Sonya Dakar Enzyme Peeling Cream ($85; sonyadakar.com), which dissolves dead skin cells in minutes so they easily splash away when you rinse. FAST FIX "Using a clean cotton swab, dab the pimple with antibacterial ointment, like Neosporin Neo to Go First Aid Antibiotic Ointment pocket-size packets ($5; drugstore.com), to reduce redness and prevent infection," says Somerville, who adds that if the pore is still partially clogged, skip the ointment, as "it will stop what's still in there from coming out." (Next time you buy tanner, it might be a good idea to pick up the scrub at the same time, just in case.) After your shower, slather on a lotion with either glycolic or lactic acid to accelerate your skin's natura sloughing process; we like AmLactin Moisturizing Lotion ($16; drugstore.com). with lactic acid.
