This solution will clear your acne in your sleep
Jun. 28, 2020
We’ve all been there. That oh-so-waited event is coming up, you’ve got your date ready and a rocking outfit to match your attitude. So, the night before you’re probably masking or getting your skincare game on, and then it happens. A big, red pimple right in the middle of your face is staring back at you in the mirror, blankly. You start panicking and hoping this thing doesn’t turn into a big yellow monster overnight or that maybe your foundation will do its magic, and everything will be all right. Sad to say, this almost never happens.
But worry not, my friends, given that blemishes are dealt by pretty much everyone at least once in their lifetime, beauty brands have found a solution that actually works. You may have heard about pimple patches, but you probably think they’re too good to be true; maybe you tried some once and got totally disappointed. Or maybe, you’ve never heard of them. No matter the case, we got you. As the name states, this pimple patches are used directly in the skin to cover the zit, most like a bandage for a small cut. As they are made of hydrocolloid –a soft plastic material used to heal wounds– it absorbs fluid from the pimple and helps it heal quickly by creating a kind of bubble that seals everything in. Just slap one right on the zit at night and you’ll wake up all cleared up.
Now it’s important to say that this is NOT a long-term solution for your acne. It will definitely do the job as a last-minute resource but not as a treatment. Remember to visit your dermatologist!
And now for the fun stuff, here’s our list of brands that know how to get the job done:
When it comes to beauty, you can’t go wrong with a Korean brand. Especially not CosRX. This K-Beauty brand launched their first product in 2015, creating a rave of love from customers all around the world. Which is why their Acne Pimple Master Patch is one of the most beloved products. Made to fit any zit size, these waterproof patches work hard overnight to deliver a fresh pimple-free face in the morning.
Born from the personal struggles with acne from its founder, this San Francisco based beauty brand has one the best pimple patches out there. Through their exclusive partnership with Sephora, Peace Out hit the shelves on 2017. Today, their Acne Healing Dots are the most raved about product for treating sudden pimples. What makes them different is the use of active ingredients like Salicylic Acid to unclog pores, Aloe Vera to soothe and Vitamin A to clear the skin.
PEACE OUTAcne Healing Dots
We weren’t kidding when we said Korean brands always bring their A-game. Famous for their innovative formulas, remarkable packaging designs and fun face masks, Dr. Jart+ is among the most notorious K-Beauty brands in the US. When it comes to pimples, their Focuspot Blemish Micro Tip Patches take the win. Containing Vitamin B3, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid, this combo helps clear the excess sebum and make zits vanish by replicating a micro-needling procedure without the painful needles.
A brand inspired by the effects of stress in the skin, and of course, the natural properties of Iceland’s Glacial Water that contains specific minerals charged with antioxidants and hydrants for skin restoration. This powerful “Icelandic Complex” is found throughout their catalog of products, including their Blemish Dots. Salicylic Acid, Tea-tree oil and Volcanic Ash complement the mix to make this pimple patches control inflammation and bacteria spread, renovating skin for that healthy glow.

Clear Hydrated Skin The Clean Way✨
Staying in the trend of clean beauty, I have found an amazing product to add to my everyday routine. Odacité SKINCARE - Blue Aura Cleansing Water This is a cleansing water that is marketed to use in place of your cleanser for a “quick” clean. When looking for a good cleansing water, you want one that is hydrating and gets your face clean. Keep in mind not all cleansing waters are designed to clean makeup (I highly recommend a cleansing balm and cleanser). About This Brand: ✨Vegan ✨Cruelty Free ✨Certified Organic ✨ NO: Fillers | Parabens | Nanoparticles | Petrochemicals | PEG | Synthetic perfumes | Dyes | Phenoxyethanol. This cleansing water is so hydrating and satisfying to use. It smells very fresh and a little goes a long way. What is very important to me is my dry spot aren’t tight or irritated. I have been using this day and night and have seen amazing results acne and skin barrier wise. I included this in my routine after a regular cleanser and before my serums. So essentially, I use this as a “toner”. I do this to clean up anything my cleanse left behind, or the cleanser itself. INGREDIENTS: ✨Tumeric: Amazing for hyperpigmentation and overall skin brightness ✨Holy Basil: I drink the tea and can vouch this is an amazing adaptogen that can overall benefit every aspect of your life. It combats aging and free radical damage. ✨Neem: great anti aging ingredient that helps protects your skin barrier. ✨Aloe Vera Juice: this is great for your skin barrier overall. It hydrated, protects and brightens. I highly recommend this cleansing water and it is on sale for $9 at Boxycharm Pop Up 🥰🥰
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
