It’s too easy to lose our cool when acne is involved. The urge to pick and scratch is always strong and nearly impossible to resist, which usually results to a scar that ends up looking way worse than its predecessor. Luckily, you can get something budget-friendly that can not only heal breakouts but also stop you from picking at them. Introducing, acne patches.
Acne patches look like clear stickers at first glance, but they’re actually a type of hydrocolloid or blister bandages that protects the skin from irritation. Most contain anti-acne ingredients like salicylic acid to help heal your breakout faster. To use, just put one patch over a raised pimple and leave it on for a few hours. These stickers will absorb the pus (ew!) from the breakout and the strong adhesive will prevent you from accidentally touching it and causing it to pop. What’s more, most acne patches are only under 200 pesos!
