Minus the glam teams and lavish lifestyles, celebrities are really just like us: they get tired and stressed, and suffer skin problems. While they can easily afford to book a trip to the derma to get their flawless faces back, some of them would just rather fix the problems themselves.
Just recently, Kylie Jenner posted a Snapchat revealing how she dealt with surprise breakouts. We were so surprised—and amused—to find out that the 18-year-old reality TV star and entrepreneur uses a product that a lot of us beauty addicts swear by:
This well-loved product is the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, and its major components are calamine lotion and salicylic acid. The product claims to get rid of pimples and whiteheads overnight, as it penetrates deep into the pores while you sleep. The best part? It won’t irritate your skin.
Kylie also showed the proper way to apply it:
Kylie isn’t the only celeb who swears by this product. Other fans of the cult fave are Kate Moss, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Aniston, Natalie Portman, and more.
If you want to try this product yourself, make sure that you don’t shake the bottle to mix the contents. Let the calamine lotion settle down at the bottom first, then take a clean cotton bud, dip it all the way to the bottom of the bottle and then apply it on your blemishes. (Tip: Don’t double dip!) When you wake up the next day, wash off the product and you'll see that your blemishes are gone! Repeat if necessary.
It is a *little* expensive, but if you absolutely hate dealing with surprise breakouts like us, then it’s a price you might just be willing to pay. Besides, you can get a looooot of uses from it!
