Among the villains of our skin, there’s one that stands out from the rest. We’re talking about acne, zits, pimples, and blemishes! If there’s Valar morghulis (“All men must die”) in Game of Thrones, there’s acne vulgaris, which is the medical term for the dreaded skin disease that manifests as blackheads, whiteheads, zits galore, and oily skin. What’s good, GoT Fans?
Pimple patches are perfect for men and women who have a bad habit of nipping their pimples with their fingers; not only does this leave dark spots and acne scars, it also damages your skin.
Thank you to every beauty brand that continuously innovates products to help us, pimpled-plagued consumers.
COSRX Acne Master Pimple Patch
A cult favorite among beauty enthusiasts, COSRX does not disappoint with its pimple patches. COSRX is one of the first K-Beauty brands to release these patches. It works for me, but a friend complained that it didn’t do anything for her. Then I discovered that she placed the patch on her zit without popping it. If your zit has pus, make sure to pop it first before applying the patch.
There are three kinds of COSRX pimple patches. Above is the red one, which is the OG. It does its job very well. The black one is specially made to blend on your skin, making the patches somewhat invisible. COSRX’s latest release is AC Collection Acne Patch with Centella Asiatica Extract. The patches come in different shapes to accommodate a variety of pimple sizes.
Happy Skin Beauty Invisible Pimple Patch
Meet Happy Skin’s latest product: Invisible Pimple Patch, One Step Pimple Rescue! Happy skin is a local brand that continues to wow me. Its patches contain Cica, which aids pimple healing and prevents scarring. You get 15 patches in one pack, which is great to save you from any nasty acne that won’t go away. The product is made in Korea and claims to be undetectable when applied.
The best part about pimple patches is that they’re easy to place and satisfying to peel. Happy Skin Invisible Pimple Patch changes in color from transparent to white, and can get rid of pimples minus the scarring.
Some By Mi Clear Spot Patch
Some By Mi uses a hydrocolloid type, making the patches invisible as well. This is an intensive spot patch that naturally covers your trouble spot. The patches come in two different sizes (10mm and 12mm). This skin savior absorbs the gunk, oil, and dirt from the problem area quite effectively.
These patches are water-resistant and translucent. You can feel safe the entire day without worrying if they’ll come off from your sweat. Always make sure to have clean and dry skin before applying to any areas of your face.
Innisfree Bija Trouble Focusing Patch
Innisfree is one of the most famous skincare and beauty lines. This Korean Beauty brand continues to take the world by storm by creating effective and natural products. One of its best-sellers is its Bija Trouble Line.
These products are specifically for people who are battling troubled skin. Aside from Cica, Bija oil and salicylic acid are effective at treating skin problems. My advice? Find the right ingredient that effectively addresses your skin type and pimple problem.
