Question Leaky crank seal?

I'm pretty sure my crank seal is leaky because oil is coming from that exact spot. btw 2000 ranger 2.5 4 banger. not a bad leak about a quart every month or two. one benefit tho is the whole underneath has a nice coating of oil and keeps her from

question is does anyone recommend a certain brand oil additive stop leak type stuff that actually works?

I'm leery about adding any "additives" to my oil and I know the correct fix would be to replace the seal but i'm lazy and it's like 100 degrees outside and I'm looking for a quick fix.
