Pimple patches are a must have for anyone who has ever had to deal with acne. They help keep your naughty hands from picking at your skin and causing further inflammation, while shortening the stay of pesky pimples on your face.
Let's learn more about these magical little stickers, and how they work!
What's a pimple patch?
Most pimple patches are often small, circular hydrocolloid bandages. These hydrocolloid bandages are normally used in hospitals to prevent infections, pull out the pus and blood of open wounds, while encouraging healing. What pimple patches do is take that same technology for smaller, pimple-sized patches that can be used to cover up acne.
Do pimple patches really work?
Pimple patches work because they suck out the gunk, pus and debris that could cause further infection and by creating an ideal environment for your skin to heal. They may not always get rid of acne completely overnight, but they can speed up the recovery process and leave you with a flatter pimple and a less inflamed skin.
Unlike most acne-targeting spot treatments, these pimple stickers won't leave your skin feeling dry and flaky, making it suitable for everyone—including babes with sensitive skin. Acne stickers also have the added benefit of preventing you from picking at your pimples, which increases the inflammation and can slow the healing process down.
