Summer season is associated with breakouts like pimples, blemishes, etc because the skin overworks in the hot season. It’s summer season we sweat a lot, with excessive oil production and this can block the pores leading to breakouts and other skin woes. Yet, it is the season we attend parties (weddings, birthday parties, dinner dates, etc) the most, go on holidays, etc, so in the case where you suddenly develop annoying pimples, your rescue will be the use of pimple patches.
Pimple patches are God’s own innovation for mankind, if you hate pimples you will understand where I’m coming from. It’s a Korean beauty product that has taken a huge stride in the beauty community, the beauty trend is the way to quickly and effectively deal with the summer skin woes especially if you have a big event coming up or a huge presentation at work.
Pimple patches are also known as acne patches or spot stickers, how do they work? and are they really as effective as the rave about them is on high? The answer will be yes they’re very effective, pimple patches are hydrocolloid bandages, they work by absorbing fluid from a spot and helping reduce inflammation, compared to other pimple remedies that leave the spot dry the following day. The patches are see-through patches that turn white as they work to absorb the pus and flatten out your spot. They are mostly used at night because that’s when the skin is most relaxed which makes the beauty products used work effectively and better, but they are so tiny and discreet that you can get away with it in the day.
Acne patches have become a go-to to celebrities, beauty influencers, etc, and most of the time recommended by dermatologists. And the benefit of using acne patches is that you don’t get to touch or be tempted to squeeze the spot as that can cause damage to your skin and cause more breakouts, it prevents the transfer of bacteria by acting as an extra layer of protection for your skin.
Acne patches are very hygienic to use just for the fact that it prevents daily specks of dirt and pollution from getting into an already bad-tempered skin, they are good in calming redness and irritation encouraging the skin to heal itself. Although there are situations where the pimple has been picked and left sore, the quick remedy to this will be to dab tea tree oil on the spot and then place the acne patch on top, the result is always instant healing with no scars, early days of spots can also be treated with aloe vera (that’s very great in calming the skin and works as an antibacterial agent that fights acne) dabbed on top with the patch on.
There are also some acne patches that come with extra-slim microneedles, and work by penetrating even deeper into skin layers delivering acne-fighting ingredients into the stubborn and hard-to-reach breakouts. You can incorporate these acne patches into your skincare routine, it comes as the second step after cleansing, then go ahead and apply your other beauty products. The result? the spot becomes flattened with less redness. The patches can be worn all day and overnight.
