The ultimate beauty sleep am I right?
It’s the night before that big night out that you’ve been planning for weeks. You’ve fully prepped – tan on, nails done, outfit picked – and then you realise you’ve been greeted by an unwelcome visitor ON YOUR FACE. Great. You search up every home remedy for ‘getting rid of spots QUICK’ but alas, there is nothing you can do.
Well, now we have an answer to all your prayers! Introducing acne patches.
We know it looks a bit like you’ve covered your face in your childhood stickers. But, these patches are actually hydrocolloid dressings which absorb excess fluids such as oil or pus from spots. Meaning, that by the morning your spot will be emptied without the damage caused by popping it with your fingers.
These patches can also work to protect popped spots from bacteria so they can heal quicker. Also, if your spot is covered, you’re not able to pick at it, meaning that bacteria can’t be spread across your face.
So where can you get these miracle patches from?
