Acne. Acne are just so irritating!!! People who has acne problems, you'll know how I feel. I had so many friends with acne problems, but I bet I'd the most serious acne problem among them.
In my case, my pimples are like big ones. First, I'll have a big red bump. Second, the red bump will turn into zits (yellowish, disgusting thingy, so called pus). Third, I'll poke it cz I got no choice, I'll look freaking ugly with those zits and I ain't going out with that!
I'm a picker. When I was in my teenage, I just can't stand with those bumps, zits! I'll either pick it or poke it! I know it's disgusting, it's not good, but I just can't control myself! I believe most of those people who suffer from acne did that k.
Soon, when I grow up, I start controlling myself, I pick less, but there's still some nights I'll try to poke those acne and squeeze those heads out. Then the next morning, I'll look freaking fugly with red bumps all over my face and worst, scars. So now, I'll warn myself to never pick on my pimples!
Few weeks ago, I did mention on how crazy my pimples are! It's so insane, so luckily I had no school, I won't need to go out so no makeup! I just wait for the pimple to heal itself, but it take ages! and those pimples just grow bigger. One day I need to meet my friend nearby my house for dinner, and the pimple is just so awkwardly lied near my nose there. And one of my friend, she told me to use the Nexcare Acne Patch. She said it's super duper good! And yes! IT IS FREAKING AWESOME! It's a miracle for me!
P.S previously, before my friend recommended me this thing, I did heard before acne patches from those gurus but I never looked into it. Cz I thought it's just a piece of sticker that you used to stick on your acne cz it's so freaking ugly. That's all. I never know it can actually heal your acne in a faster way. I know I sound idiot. lollll
So after my friend recommended me, I straight away went to Watson and buy. I bought the smaller pack one, i can't remember how many patches they got. In one pack, they got two sizes, small and big patches. Btw, the pack I bought is 40% thinner, I had no idea how thick the original one is, cz I never buy it before.
The second time I purchase, I bought the bigger box, with 30 patches, 40% thinner (like the pic above).
However, this time this box only contain small size patches. But I had seen people posting on the normal original ones, they got big and small size patches. I had no idea why. I'll try to find it out soon.
Those patches act as a barrier to prevent yourself from picking your zits, reduce hand contact and infection. It acts like a sponge that absorbs the oily secretion, fluid and pus.
How to use:
1. Cleanse your face, dry your face with a towel. Stick the patch to your pimples before you apply any skin care product. Make sure that your hand and face is dry. Otherwise, it will not stick well.
2. Once the colour changes to white, it means that the oily secretion has been absorbed. Gently peel it off.
3. If wearing makeup, applu the acne patch first.
For me, I'd prefer to use it during the night time. I once use it when I go out. In the end, I ended up looking stupid, a girl with a sticker on her face. Lolll cz it's not completely transparent or skin colour. It's slightly yellow instead.
So during the night, after I cleanse my face, I would stick it onto my acne. After that, I'll apply my skincare products. The next day, when you peel it off, you'll find a yellowish spot on the patch. That's the pus. And then, your zits will be gone. No blood, no pus. Awesome!
Pickers or I should say anyone suffering from acne should really buy this! Esp those who have big big big pimples like me! Don't pick your pimples as it will leave scars! I'm also saying this to myself! Lollll
