    Few things can deflate confidence more than waking up with a big ol' honkin' zit. I know. The word is even gross. It's the ultimate killjoy. And the worst part of all is it's not like blemishes just magically disappear in an hour! We have to live with them for a few days. And it sucks.

    But. There actually are a few ways to drastically reduce the life of a pimple -- to a day or possibly even ... an hour. Yes, I'm being serious.

    Here are five weird ways to banish a blemish (almost) instantly.

    Before I gave birth, I was a skincare and makeup junkie. I used to be obsessed with expensive products and trying out every DIY beauty routine I discovered online. Glitter lipstick? Awesome. Skin lightener with flecks of diamonds in it -- bring it on.

    But then I became the mom of a little girl and found myself either too pressed for time to commit to my old routines or not feeling totally right about performing them. By the same token, I've adopted other routines and products with religious fervor.

    Is my cellphone giving me zits?

    Will retinoids make me more likely to get a sunburn?

    Is there a specific ingredient I should be looking for when I choose beauty products?

    If my mom has wrinkles, will I?

    These are some of the questions that keep me up at night. That and, "Where the hell did these wrinkles come from? Wasn't I going to the prom, like, last week???"

    That's why on the latest episode of The Jenny Isenman Show, I'm firing questions at my favorite dermatologist, the author of Forget the Facelift, Dr. Doris Day. Dr. Day has made numerous appearances on Good Morning America, The Dr. Oz Show, The View, and 20/20 ... to name a few.

    Watch this episode after the jump to hear Dr. Day debunk myths, answer all your beauty questions, and give you the bare minimum you need to be your most beautiful self. What she says may surprise you!

    I have a little bit of a confession. I have a girl crush on Naya Rivera. How could you not? Glee's Santana Lopez has killer confidence and a voice that is amazeballs. Oh, and did I mention she's gorgeous? You would never guess that off-screen, the 24-year-old has taken some major steps to ensure her camera-ready look.

    Today's shocker: Naya is the new spokesperson for Proactiv, the three-step acne treatment that's worked for other celebs like Julianne Hough, Katy Perry, and even the Biebs himself.

    Wait ... seriously? Naya used to have bad acne? When?! Every time I see her shining face walking through the halls of McKinley High, she looks freakin' flawless. I'd KILL to have her clear skin. The on-screen diva told Proactiv that having acne made going to work every day embarrassing.

    I agree with Naya, acne can make you feel really uncomfortable. But boy am I happy that it didn't stop her from pursuing her career. I can't imagine what Glee would be like without Santana!

    I can't even believe I'm sharing this with you, but I woke up this morning with the MOST ENORMOUS ZIT EVER.

    It's so big, in fact, that I'm afraid to leave the house!

    I'm trying very hard not to pop it, but OMG, it is so HIDEOUS that it's hard not to touch it.

    I haven't had a zit in YEARS. I don't even know what to do about it.
