Our lives have been completely transformed by pimple patches. They were everywhere when we were younger, destroying our skin with toothpaste every night and lemon juice every night. We certainly could’ve used them every time we popped a pimple in the past too — which has been Many, many times.
Pimple patches can be used to prevent acne from becoming infected, and they can also be used to shrink redness and irritation and make your skin less reddened and itchy overnight. Some are so clear that you can wear them all day! We’ve tried a ton, so below we’re showcasing our five faves:
Peace out Acne Dots
These dots are made from hydrocolloid polymer technology, but they also contain salicylic acid to treat serious target breakouts and protect them against external elements. They even contain retinol as well as aloe verde!
