When you get a zit, it’s always tempting to pick it at it – which is a big no-no and can leave scarring. A spot appears from nowhere just before that big date, a wedding, or a special event. That’s where hydrocolloid stickers come in as they will banish that pesky spot overnight – or even during a day.
Pimple patches aren’t a new concept, but are the best way to treat those little breakouts without damaging the appearance of your skin.
The tiny skincare heroes don’t leave skin dry or flakey! The hydrocolloid bandages absorb fluid from the spot, and some are even designed with teeny tiny microneedles that push the treatment deeper into the skin to clear up the spots that haven’t quite surfaced yet but are red and painful!
Heres a list of the handy pimple patches to buy now:
Neogen Dermatology A-Clear Soothing Clear Spot Patch
Neogen Dermatology’s A-Clear Soothing Clear Spot Patch is part of the well-known Korean brand’s A-Clear offering. These fragrance-free, waterproof patches not only banish your pimples but aid the healing process by absorbing excess sebum. The patch shields the trouble area from further inflammation, and creates a moist environment that prevents scars from forming.
Peach Slices Deep Blemish Microdarts
This popular K-beauty retailer launched an affordable collection called Peach Slices. The original Acne Spot Dots became a hit right away, since they were on the thinner side as far as hydrocolloid stickers go, so you can easily wear them all day and no one could tell! These are perfect for the early stage and below-the-surface pimples as they contain over one hundred and seventy-six tiny, painless spikes infuse a clarifying blend of salicylic acid, tea tree, and willow bark into the targeted area to kick-start the acne-healing process — while hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and cica offer hydrating and soothing benefits.
Jason Wu Beauty Saved By The Patch Pimple Patch
Jason Wu is better known for fashion, but if you hadn’t heard, Jason Wu Beauty also exists and this pimple patch serves runway beauty realness. The Saved By the Patch Pimple Patch is packed with salicylic acid, an oil-soluble beta hydroxy acid or BHA that penetrates deep into your pores and dissolves pore-clogging debris. Each box comes with 36 patches in two sizes, 11 millimeters and 13.5 millimeters, to tackle breakouts of all sizes.
ZitSticka Killa Pimple Patch
Australian skin care brand, ZitSticka’s product debut was a pimple patch covered with dissolving microneedles filled with blemish-busting ingredients, like salicylic acid, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. To use, first wipe the inflamed area with the accompanying cleansing cloth to clean it, then gently place the patch on your skin. Leave it on for at least two hours (or overnight) to bring down blemish swelling, redness, and size.

This two-step acne tackling treatment is perfect to catch the spot before it even surfaces.
Patchology’s Breakout Box 3-in-1 Acne Treatment Kit contains 24 salicylic acid- and tea tree-spiked dots to shrink blemishes before they come to a head, and the other packet is filled with 24 hydrocolloid dots to vacuum all of the gunk out of your whiteheads. Whats more is that the kit also includes 3 nose strips formulated with a clarifying blend of charcoal, Moroccan lava clay, and witch hazel to extract surface layers of dead skin cells and blackheads.
