Not Just For Spots. 6 Ways You Can Use Your Skin Control Pimple Patch
The hardest working product you’ll ever own…
Call us biased, but we think pimple patches might just be the best invention since sliced bread.
Not only do these magic dots get rid of spots fast, but they're protective, healing and can prevent picking and scarring. They're also multi-purpose! In fact, Skin Control Pimple Patches are not just for pimples. They can also be used to treat a stack of other ailments.
Let's map out some of our favourite methods below.
An obvious one, but important nonetheless. Skin Control Pimple Patches come in both day and night iterations, plus an XL size to treat a number of spots at any time, anywhere on the body. The way they work is simple: Just apply your pimple patch of choice to clean, dry skin and leave it on for a minimum of 3-4 hours. It will promote healing by keeping it moist, plus prevent picking and the spreading of germs.
INCREASE INGREDIENT PENETRATION
If your spot is gone but it's left a small mark, try using a Pimple Patch as a barrier to help skin-healing ingredients penetrate and brighten. We love niacinamide infused serums for this. Just apply some to your mark, stick a pimple patch on top and leave it overnight. The patch will prevent evaporation, helping you to get the most out of your skincare.
ENCOURAGE SMALL KNICKS AND CUTS TO HEAL
Pimple patches were originally developed as a form of wound care as they keep the skin clean and moist (this accelerates healing). So next time you accidentally nick yourself shaving, or give yourself a paper-cut, try popping a Skin Control Pimple Patch on.
TAKE THE ITCH OUT OF A MOSQUITO BITE
Not only are mosquito bites incredibly annoying, but the constant itching can lead to marking and scaring the skin. Our Pimple Patches are infused with tea tree, which is great for bites, plus the patch itself will act like a shield, preventing skin injury and putting a stop to the scratching cycle.
Reason number five to always have some Skin Control on-hand is to fix blisters in a pinch! Whether it’s a new pair of sneakers or heels or both, each spot will prevent rubbing and lighten your step. Our XL patches are great for the heels, whereas regular Pimple Patches work well around the toes.
FIX INGROWN HAIRS
Ingrown hairs occur when a hair (usually after shaving or waxing) curls back into the follicle and grows inwards, often resulting in a red bump or small whitehead. But a Pimple Patch can work to calm and reduce swelling, plus absorb any fluid. Follow it up with a gentle exfoliation to un-trap the hair.
