It’s no secret that I have far from perfect skin. I’ve been struggling more than usual lately with acne flare ups, which has been making me feel less confident and not like myself (I talked a lot about it in my latest youtube video). Whether it’s hormonal, diet-related or from stress, the struggle has been real. Other than trying to relax a bit and eat cleaner, I’ve been focused on keeping my skin clean and hydrated. My skin has gotten a lot better this week, so I thought I’d share a product that has helped me heal my painful breakouts quickly! Keep on reading to learn about the $6 acne product I swear by.
MEET THE PIMPLE PATCH
Definitely not the most glam skincare product I could talk about, but it’s definitely one I wanted to share with you guys! I recently jumped on the pimple patch train to see what all the hype was about and I’m impressed. There are a few on the market, but probably the most popular ones are the Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patches,(you can get on Amazon for under $5!) and the Peace Out Acne Healing Dots. Pimple patches are basically little hydrocolloid (fluid absorbing) bandages that stick to your skin and draw out the fluid from your pimples so you don’t have to pop or pick at anything. They are great for wearing overnight so you know your pimple is protected from your pillow or your wandering fingers!
DO THEY WORK?
The short answer is yes, they do! And you know they’re working because you can see it happening. After wearing the patch for a few hours or overnight and you take the patch off, you can see the clear patch has turned opaque white (which is all the gunk that was in your pimple!) Probably the best part about these patches is that it keeps you from touching your pimples. Believe me, I know how hard it is to not touch your pimples. But when you do, it increases your chances of your pimple getting inflamed/infected and slows down the healing process. I like using these because they physically stop me from touching my pimples and keeps germs and air pollutants away! If you’re a chronic pimple toucher and are looking for a little extra help with your breakouts, I would definitely recommend giving these pimple patches a try!
