You may have heard the term hydrocolloid in relation to acne treatment, but do you know what it actually means? Hydrocolloid works by acting as an invisible, breathable bandage that protects acne lesions from the inside out and promotes the healing process. Read on to learn more about how hydrocolloids work, what kinds of products you can find them in, and how you can incorporate hydrocolloids into your skin care routine.
For people suffering from zits, hydrocolloid patches are a godsend. Hydrocolloids can be used to temporarily treat acne blemishes caused by pore clogging and excess oil production. Dermatologists across the world consider them safe and effective for treating mild pimples and whiteheads. While they’re not permanent fixes, they are perfect for reducing redness and swelling while helping your skin heal itself naturally.
What is a hydrocolloid patch?
A hydrocolloid patch is a wound dressing that uses ingredients such as pectin, carboxymethylcellulose and methylcellulose to create a breathable covering for wounds. It seals out air, water and bacteria that can slow healing or cause an infection. Such a wound dressing is flexible to help reduce inflammation. Hydrocolloids come in many forms including sheets, rolls and or pimple patches fitting individual wounds 😉
How to use acne patches?
Hydrocolloid patches can be used as part of a comprehensive acne treatment plan, but to work effectively they have to be applied properly. When placed over an acne lesion, hydrocolloids work by removing dead skin cells and excess oil from your pores. This helps reduce swelling and inflammation that contribute to breakouts. To get rid of pimples fast and get the most of your hydrocolloid pimple patch, follow these simple instructions:
. Cleanse face and hands
. Remove whitehead with sterilised tweezer - if you haven't popped yet xD
. Apply pimple patch for 6h or overnight
. Remove to see the trapped oil and dead skin cells
