We all know zits happen. But sometimes it still blows my mind how quickly they happen. Like, I’ll be in a meeting, and then I’ll get back to my desk and boom! There’s a brand new pimple on my chin. Like, WTF? But whenever this happens to me at work, I go into the back of my drawer and into my old makeup case and reach for my five-year-old tube of Ellen Lange Dab Away Drying Lotion ($26, outlet-store-online.com). It’s this slim blue tube filled with clear liquid that I just dab onto my zit, and in a few hours it’s calmed down. Now I know you might think it’s gross, using a product this old, but to be honest … in this case, if it still works, I don’t care.
