An Introduction to Pimple Patch
by Felipe Modolo Pinto on Jan 25, 2022
Any person who has suffered from acne can tell you that it’s not only uncomfortable and embarrassing, but can also be difficult to treat. Many people turn to creams or lotions to control their acne, which are often filled with harsh chemicals that can be damaging to the skin. Because of this, many people are looking for alternative methods to control their acne, and these types of treatments may include pimple patches. This article will provide more information about pimple patches as well as how they work and what you should know about them before using them.
What is a pimple patch?
A pimple patch is a patch-shaped sticker that you apply over your pimples, which helps it heal more quickly. Like many skincare products, pimple patches are used in conjunction with other treatments to clear your skin more efficiently. The most effective way to use pimple patches, specifically hydrocolloid is when a whitehead first appears; applying it early on can help prevent a long lasting breakout from forming.
How do pimple patches work?
Pimple patches work by covering your zit and preventing external bacteria from getting to it. They stick to your skin like band-aid, allowing the active ingredients to enter your skin, decreasing inflammation and assisting with healing.
Why should I use pimple patches?
When there’s an active zit, it can be tempting to pick at it, but don’t succumb to that temptation. All you’re doing is forcing bacteria further into your skin and causing irritation. That irritation makes the zit bigger and causes more inflammation – which only worsens things further. Remember they can cause long-term skin damage too, scars and hyperpigmentation.
Can they get rid of acne completely?
Acne can really be an annoying problem. It can cause embarrassment, affect self-esteem and make it hard to smile with pride. Although acne is caused by many different things, pimple patches can help in getting rid of pimples but not acne completely. When placed on active breakouts, pimples typically flatten out within hours or days, depending on their severity and other factors. They may not vanish entirely but they will lessen in size significantly so that you won’t feel as conscious about them!
