ESC: Must Do Monday

How many times have you gone to bed with perfectly clear skin only to wake up with a nasty pimple planted on your face?

Nasty blemishes have a way of popping up the day before a big meeting or something else of monumental importance. So, how do you handle it? Like a pro.

With 24 hours on the clock until you have to show face, it can be tempting to squeeze it, prick it and straight up attack it to death. But, especially if you want it to disappear fast, take this alternative approach: Dry that sucker out.

Luckily, celeb aesthetician Renee Lynn has an affordable, DIY trick up her sleeve. The best part about this tip? You probably already have what you need at home. To zap zits fast, the pro, who's worked with Brooke Shields and Céline Dion, combines two household ingredients: baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.

"You only need a tiny bit, less than a teaspoon of baking soda. Just mix in hydrogen peroxide until it creates a paste," she explained. Leave it on for 10 minutes at most, until you feel it start to tingle.

"It draws out the bacteria because it's anti-microbial and anti-fungal. I've had clients say their blemish was gone the next day," she added. 

We almost wish we had a zit right now just to try this theory out. Almost
