    lol What gave you the idea to put pile cream on your spot:rotfl: :rotfl:
    I know models use it on the wrinkles round the eyes but thats a new one on me


    Well one day I slipped with the tube and...... :D

    No, I read it somewhere ;) Pile cream is an astringent and reduces redness and swelling by tightening up the little blood vessels feeding the offending 'lump'.
    Just run, run and keep on running!

    This is my secret tip! Disolve one or two soluable aspirins with a tiny drop of water, once it has turned into paste apply and leave to dry. Once dry, add a bit more water and leave to dry again. then rinse off.
    It can be left on overnight. It works everytime but not many people know, so there you are!

    That works for bites as well. Stops them itching and calms them down.

    Good luck with it!!

    And anyway, it's probably one of those that you think is massive but no-one else can see!!

    Good luck in the interview tomorrow!:beer:

    The Asprin can be used as a face mask as it is Salicycilic acid which is often the active ingredient in more expensive cleansers.

    Thanks to everyone for your tips. I thought I'd conduct an experiment last night with the pile creme :eek: on the big offending spot, and toothpaste on a smaller one which decided to pop up on my chin.

    In the morning, and to my slight shock, the bigger spot (with the pile creme applied) had all but disappeared but with a little dry skin where the spot was. Nothing a bit of moisuriser + concealer won't hide :T

    The smaller spot with the toothpaste applied had also gone, but the area where the paste was (in the exact shape of the paste area) was a little red, like my skin had reacted to the paste. I do have sensitive skin though so maybe the colgate was a bit too harsh for it. :D

    So there you are! Thanks for saving my pride today and fingers crossed for the interview this afternoon!
