Anytime I think I'm getting a blemish, I grab the organic tea tree oil. I can't even remember now how I first heard of it, but it took me a while to find in the nail section at the drugstore. The little bottles I find are intended to treat nail fungus, but they work great with a cotton swab on little wanna-be zits. I think it's mostly drying, but it makes those ugly little spots flake off and disappear in a day or two! Where was this stuff when I was in high school??
