RAVE: Nexcare Acne Patches
I finally got these in the mail this week and oh my god. Why did I not know about these years ago?! They are amazing. Everyone should go buy them (or hydrocolloid bandages). They work so well on pimples really close to the surface of your skin or those you have picked at.
I put them on over any problem spots before I go to bed (right after I cleanse). I take them off whenever I wake up and holy hell it’s so satisfying to see all the gunk they have sucked out. Pimples are noticeably smoother and I feel like the spots I pick at heal faster, too. I really don’t know how I lived without these for so long.
Edited to add that they only seem to work on whiteheads. They don’t seem to do anything for cysts (I have a small one on my neck that’s taking forever to go away) or closed comedones. I don’t have blackheads so I haven’t been able to test their effectiveness on those.
