Pimple patches are essential for anyone who has ever had to deal with acne.
They help prevent you from picking and inflaming your skin further, and shorten the time a pimple stays on your face.
This will provide an insight on how these magical little stickers work, so keep reading!
What is a pimple patch?
Typically, pimple patches are small, circular hydrocolloid bandages. Hydrocolloid bandages are usually used in hospitals to prevent infection, pull out pus and blood, and encourage healing.
Pimple patches take the same technology and apply it to smaller, pimple-size patches that can be used on acne.
Do pimple patches really work?
Pimple patches work by sucking up the gunk, pus and debris, preventing further infection and creating an ideal environment for your skin to heal.
They may not always get rid of acne completely overnight, they can speed up the recovery process, giving you a flatter pimple and a less inflamed skin.
The pimple stickers won't dry out or flake your skin, making them safe for everyone — even those with sensitive skin.
Furthermore, acne stickers prevent you from picking at your pimples, which increases the inflammation and can slow the healing process down.
