You know if you pick or pop a pimple (which I don’t reeeally recommend, but obviously it happens), and then that clear fluid comes out which then forms a scab?

Well, I don’t know about you, but when that happens to me, I want that scab to form as flat as possible. I also want it to heal and come off as soon as possible. That way it’s much less noticeable than a bulging scab that hangs around for days, and easier to cover up with a touch of makeup.

So anyway – I’ve found an awesome, simple trick that helps acne scabs to heal flatter than usual and go away quickly. Watch the video to find out what it is. You may already have the secret ingredient in your skin care cupboard!

Do you, perhaps, have a similar trick to getting acne scabs to form flatter and go away quickly?
