Do Pimple Patches Really Work?
Whether you’ve been closely following skincare trends over the past few years or not, you’ve likely heard of the pimple patch. These small, fingertip-sized patches go directly over pimples or blemishes on the skin’s surface, and while they may seem like merely a band-aid that goes over the pimple to cover it up until it heals on its own, the pimple patch actually helps the breakouts heal faster! They work by absorbing the excess fluid with a vacuum-like effect, getting out all the dirt, oil, and other grime that could be causing the breakout. Essentially, the pimple patch makes pimples dry up faster than they would normally.
This vacuum-like ability is thanks to hydrocolloid, a moisture-retentive dressing that provides a moist, insulated healing environment and is also commonly used to heal chronic wounds. In addition to soaking up liquid and drying pimples out, pimple patches protect the area from external bacteria, sunlight, and prevent you from picking at them. This, combined with the ability to suck out the excess fluid, oil, and dirt, accelerates the healing process.
Most pimple patches are designed for surface-level acne, also known as superficial acne. For this easier to treat acne, a pimple patch is one of the best at-home solutions to clearing up breakouts and they won’t break the bank.
