What can ruin your day faster than a new pimple? Maybe poking at it, which just makes it even larger and redder. Or perhaps treating it with something that causes you to have an allergic reaction.
How could something like that happen? If you have a sensitivity to coconut, it’s difficult to find skin care products that don’t contain coconut or coconut derivatives. Then when you have a spot on your face, you’re extra susceptible – desperate in your desire to get rid of it and vulnerable to how your skin will react to a product you only need every now and then. Worst case scenario you use a product that contains coconut and it just makes everything worse.
Okay, enough of the doom and gloom we’ve all gone through before. Let’s talk about solutions. Let’s talk about acne patches. Acne patches have become more and more popular in the last 10 years – so much so that you’ve probably seen celebrities pull back the curtain and post pictures of them wearing acne patches on social media. It shows they’re real people with real skin problems. After all, acne and sensitive skin do not discriminate. Having a coconut allergy does not leave us defenseless againt acne: COSRX has effective coconut-free Acne Patches.
How do COSRX Acne Patches work?
The first thing that makes them effective is simply their existence. If we have a material physically covering a spot, it is completely protected from our hands. Once we have a spot on our face, it enters our mind, and it becomes hard to stop ourselves from unconsciously touching it. We all know hands are a ready vehicle for bacteria and other gunk that will surely infuriate the breakout. With an acne patch applied, there is a barrier between the spot and its worst enemy: Us.
The next thing that makes COSRX Acne Patches work on spots is its hydrocolloid technology. Underneath the bandage, it creates a moist environment while at the same time absorbing whatever is coming out of the blemish. Thus it speeds up the healing process of the pesky spot.
COSRX has a variety of options for their coconut-free acne patches. Check them out on Amazon and see which one works best for you:
Acne patches work best when your pimple has a head on it. When you peal that patch off, the head will stick to the patch and be easy to throw away. Most people use acne patches at night so that the patch works while they sleep. Others wear them all the time, replacing them every day until the spot disappears. Some say they can put makeup on top of the patch itself so it blends in better.
