This $20 Drugstore Gadget is the Secret to Zapping Zits Fast
Pre-order yours now.
There's a new acne solution in town that's been getting a lot of buzz—pun intended. Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment pens have harnessed the zit-zapping power of LED light technology made famous by those Stormtrooper-like masks celebrities are so in love with, to create a just-as-effective acne treatment that fits in your purse (and won't scare the neighbors). And that's not even the best part. The sleek pen will retail for just $19.99.
It's important to note that the pen isn't a one-stop-acne-vanquishing shop, but it can effectively treat a rogue blemish or two when they show their ugly heads. Like before a date or a big interview. Yikes.

"Red light essentially acts like a fire extinguisher to put out the inflammation that causes pimples, while blue light has been shown to kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin," dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD, explained to Refinery29. "While spot treating does not get to the root of the problem, and is not typically ideal for patients with chronic acne, it can be beneficial when used as in addition to your entire acne prevention routine."
You can pre-order your own now at neutrogena.com (ships 6/5/2017) or wait until they hit drugstores in July.
