Hiya Hart Beat! How’s your Monday going? Things are pretty quiet here in New York and I feel like we’re all kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop with all this nice weather. I can feel a snowstorm just waiting in the wings for the next day we’re all wearing sneakers and Spring jackets.
Anway, in other news, I have a secret trick to share with you! This, like all things secret, comes from my boyfriend Pedro. To be fair, this one comes from his Grandmother so it gives the secret, even more, alure.
Growing up I was blessed with blemish free skin (thanks, Mom!) but now that I’m in my mid/ late twenties I’ve been seeing more and more pimples and the like pop up. I never know how to deal with them and have tried everything. Enter Pedro’s Grandmother’s advice. It sounds gross but bear with me because not only does it work but it’s free! That’s right, a blemish trick coming at you with the low, low price of FREE.99.
All you have to do is take your (clean) index finger, spit on it a little, and rub the saliva into the burgeoning pimple/blemish, let it air dry and… that’s it! Follow this a few times a day, especially before sleep, and in days your skin will clear right up. I swear! I think it’s some combination of your own pheromones combined with the drying effect of spit.
And hey, if it doesn’t work, it’s cost you nothing because this little trick is easy, free-zy, beautiful (and not sold by Covergirl). Let me know if you try it, Hart Beat! I would love to hear from the field…
