We're so thankful for the existence of spot treatments because they can banish breakouts ASAP. They're loaded with the best ingredients that can soothe and heal a zit in no time. You won't even dare think about picking the zit on your own. (You should never this, BTW!) Simply put, they can be the answer if you can't visit a derma to have a stubborn pimple popped.
