What You Need To Know About Pimple Patches

Life with acne is not an easy one. Multiple studies are showing how acne is detrimental to self-esteem. It certainly doesn’t help that it’s difficult to treat, often needing multiple types of therapies and medications.

The pimple patch is the closest thing we can get to a quick fix for those pesky pimples that come out of nowhere. Most pimple patches out there are convenient, easy to use. More importantly, they’re discreet, covering up your pimple without bringing too much attention to it.

Reviewers rave over them and the market’s flooded by them. There’s even a spike in Google’s search about it just last month. But do they help clear pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads? Tropika Club finds out more below.

The Science Behind Pimple Patches

Most of the pimple patches we see are made of hydrocolloid sheets. It may be a foreign name to you, but hydrocolloid soft, plastic-like material can typically be found in hospital wound-healing bandages, as well as drugstore blister pads. 

Hydrocolloid dressing is a crucial tenet in shortening the healing time of wounds. It does so by keeping the area in a moist environment. As it absorbs fluid from the wound, it becomes a gel and turns the area of the bandage white as it becomes a gel.
