I'm going out this friday and not sure if I should put on a face mask or not. As I'm thinking it might make it worse.

It is the time of the month so thismight be why I am spotty. I have got three spots around my mouth. Yuk... And I normally do not have that many spots.

Any advice welcome... smile

Think maybe mask will bring out any impurities. Would leave mask till after Friday!

Deffo no too mask - will draw out impurities. You basically need to dry them suckers out. I've tried all sorts of massively expensive spot treatments but I swear by a dab of toothpaste overnight wink

Thanks ladies, I have never heard of a aspirin face mask, that is interesting.

Probably too full on for 3 spots, but benzoyl peroxide gel (panoxyl) is very good ( better than clearasil etc) and extremely cheap although not for sensitive skins or people who get a lot of sun. You can get a bit red and flaky if you're not careful, but I swear by it in emergencies. Agree about aspirin mask - apparently the aspirin breaks down to salicylic acid, which is a spot-cream ingredient.
