You've heard of acne stickers—the little patches that can quickly banish a zit. These babies, unfortunately, are quite elusive. They're always out of stock! But thanks to our IG stalking skills, we stumbled upon Michelle Hoang's DIY version that might just be as effective. Here's how she does it:
1. First, she applies tea tree oil-infused Keeva cream on the spot, but Michelle suggests that you can skip this step if you have sensitive skin. This isn't available locally, but you can try this overnight mask as an alternative:

2. Then, she dabs a spot treatment with salicylic acid on the pimple. Find our favorite spot busters below:
3. To seal it all in, she placed a small, round bandage on the pimple. Voila! Instant acne sticker!
4. Michelle also recommends that you put a few drops of Bio-Oil on the spot in the morning to prevent scarring.
