Default Spot treatment

I need a reccomendation for a spot treatment (drugstore or natural) to help dry out my pimples quicker. I also have sensitive skin so it can't be too harsh.

Step 1: Shampoo every day or every other day with either Graham Webb Making Waves or Herbal Essences Hello Hydration

Step 2: Condition every day with either Graham Webb Making Waves or Herbal Essences Hello Hydration. Finger comb through and let sit for the rest of my shower

Step 3: Rake in one pump of TIGI Curls Rock Amplifier and then scrunch.

This routine is working pretty well for me...... and it is simple

I use tea tree oil. It's super gentle and not a really "oily" essential oil. It clears them up really well. It's naturally anti-bacterial so it cleans them up in no time!

Nelson's Hemeopathic Acne Gel is my favorite for drying up pimples. Its a mixture of tea tree oil and sulfur to kill the bacteria in the skin, and arnica, calendula to heal. For me it works better than tea tree alone or benzyl peroxide products for clearing up existing acne. You can find it at any natural food store like Whole Foods.

For prevention, you are better off with a BHA product. Pure Skin Formulations is a favorite on the board, but I use Mychelle Clear Skin Serum.
Have several allergies and sensitivities.
Current products
Low Poo/Cowash: Rio Grande Herb Co Negrita and Amole Deep Treatment Concentrate, Magick Botanicals (MB) Shampoo (diluted)
Rinse out/Leave in: MB with apricot kernel and jojoba oils added
Protein Treatment: MB Conditioner for Thinning Hair, IAgirl's protien treatment
Style: MB Gel mixed with LOTD Aloe Vera Gelly

2b-c, need lots of moisture, likes protein in moderation.

Burt's Bees blemish stick. My skin is very sensitive but I have luck with this. It's a roll on liquid, I also have really stubborn pimples, but it seems to calm them down well. Just don't put it all over your face, or where you don't want your skin to get "dried". It does have alcohol in it but the other botanicals keep it from drying me out too much. Probably not for you if your pimples are more like tiny whitehead breakouts though. This is for the big, red, burning, hideous kind!
