You might know this by now, but here's a reminder in any case: If you wake up to a big nasty ripe-looking zit on your face, resist the urge to pop it. Also, do not reach for toothpaste! We understand that you want a quick fix, but you also want to avoid the risk of scars and irritation, right? Our advice: banish those nasty zits into oblivion safely with products that contain ingredients for acne-prone skin.
Introducing your new best friends: BHAs and tea tree oil.
BHAs are gold-medalist acne fighters. They’re acids that gently exfoliate your skin to unclog it and reveal that new, glowing skin underneath. BHAs also have antibacterial properties, making it very popular for zapping zits. Makes sense since zits are a combo of clogged oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.
Meanwhile, tea tree oil is an essential oil that can give many zit-zapping products a run for their money. It is soothing and has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help get those nasty ripe zits packing for good.
You can find both these ingredients in the new Careline Skin Acne Gel! This lightweight gel contains salicylic acid (a BHA) and tea tree oil to help you banish breakouts quickly. Plus, it’s gentle enough for all skin types. The best part: it’s priced at just P170!

Like these Candy Rookies, you should always use products that contain ingredients to take care of your skin, especially if you’re prone to acne. Quick fixes can help in the short term but they can create more problems in the long run (think scars, dark spots, and uneven skin. Yikes!).
So if you wake up to a huge zit on your face or break out, don’t freak out too much. Apart from observing good skincare habits like removing your makeup before bed and washing your face twice daily, you can count on zit-zapping ingredients like BHAs and tea tree oil to help you achieve clear and flawless skin.
Careline Skin Acne Gel is available at Careline counters in Watsons, SM Department Stores, Robinsons Department Stores, and other leading department stores nationwide as well as online on Shopee and Lazada.
