Pimple or acne patches as they are sometimes called are a K-Beauty phenomenon. These acne patches have been all of the rage in Korea for the past 10 years, and are slowly been making their way to mass popularity in the states. Once placed on the blemish, they physically draw out the bacteria causing your pimple, suck it into the patch and keep it away from your skin.
These sticky skin patches are said to noticeably flatten and calm the blemish in question within one use. Listed below are 4 of the most popular brands that are available to order immediately.
1. Nexcare Acne Absorbing Covers
Nexcare’s Acne Absorbing Covers work like a sponge to absorb oils and draw out any acne contributors from your pores. They also act as a protective cover reducing the urge to pick or squeeze at the blemish in question. These patches are non-drying and include an indicator to let you know they are working.
2. Cosrx Acne Pimple Patches
Coxrx Acne Master Patches are an overnight fixer to help make all different types of acne (from blackheads to hormonal flare up’s) disappear by morning. The thin, clear patches treat breakouts by eliminating the excess oil and bacteria and extracting the impurities clogging the pore.
