Stopping the Zit in its Tracks: How to Stop a Pimple from Forming

We've all experienced that dreaded moment when you feel a pimple starting to form. The sooner you take action, the better chance you have of preventing it from forming into a full-blown zit. Let’s explore 4 steps for stopping a pimple in its tracks, so you can maintain clear and radiant skin and move on with your life!


1. Gentle Exfoliation for Prevention:

Regular exfoliation is essential for preventing pimples from forming. Peace Out’s Acne Gel Cleanser does this with gentle yet effective ingredients like 2% Salicylic Acid, maltobionic acid, and a ceramide complex for hydration. It’s also clinically proven* to reduce acne by 25% in just two weeks & 45% in four!

By incorporating this into your routine, you can prevent dead skin cells from clogging pores, reducing the likelihood of pimples forming.

*Based on a Board-Certified Dermatologist evaluated clinical study with 31 participants.


2. Use a Fast-Acting Acne Serum:

Incorporate a fast-acting serum into your routine to address emerging breakouts. Peace Out’s Acne Treatment Serum is designed to provide quick relief, reducing the inflammation and redness associated with early-stage pimples. Apply the serum directly onto the affected area to kickstart the healing process.

3. Spot Treatment with Precision:

When you feel a pimple brewing beneath the surface, reach for a targeted spot treatment. Our specific Early Stage Acne Dot gives you the opportunity to stop that pimple in its tracks. Loaded with Niacinamide and salicylic acid, our formula is powerful enough to put a stop to that zit from forming beneath the skin’s surface, while remaining gentle.

If you're dealing with a zit that's already formed, our original Acne Healing Dots will have that zit got in 6 hours or less*! If you want something a little more invisible, our Acne Day Dots are your ultra-sheer solution with the same acne-fighting ingredients.

4. Hydrate to Balance:

Maintaining the right balance of hydration is crucial. Even if you're dealing with a potential pimple, don't skip moisturizing or your skin can overcompensate and produce more oil, leading to more breakouts. Our lightweight Acne Moisturizer helps keep the skin hydrated without clogging pores.

Don't let an impending pimple steal your confidence. Our targeted products and a proactive approach can stop that pimple in its tracks and maintain a clear, radiant complexion. Incorporate these products into your routine, and face the world with the assurance that you have the power to tackle emerging breakouts head-on. Your journey to blemish-free skin starts with the right tools and a commitment to self-care.
