Acne patches are the Korean skincare innovation that has been popping up everywhere.
Until recently these blemish busting patches have been one of Korea's best-kept beauty secrets, but now it seems UK beauty lovers are rather fond of the small circular stickers too.
Dots for Spots® Original Acne Absorbing Patches (£5.99) are miniature hydrocolloid patches that cover your spots to create a unique healing environment, drawing out impurities while giving the spot time to heal safely and naturally. Hydrocolloid is an adhesive that's flexible, absorbent, waterproof, and an all-round super-powered material that creates a moist environment and optimum conditions for your spot to heal. It can also help prevent a scab forming, which can reduce the possibility of scarring. Clever stuff ey?
To use, first cleanse the area, then gently place it on the patch. Leave the Dots for Spots patch on for at least two hours (or overnight) to bring down blemish swelling, redness, and size. When the translucent center has turned white that indicates the acne patch is ready to remove.
