Once you stick ‘em on your zits, the hydrocolloid patches work by gently pulling out gunk to heal each pimple. Plus, they prevent you from picking which can cause scarring. Associate editor Abby Hepworth is also a fan of the Mighty Patch, but she prefers the Micropoint version which penetrates the skin to deliver acne-fighting ingredients under the surface.
They’re perfect for a single, large spot, but you can also use one patch to target an entire cluster of pimples at once. These are also ideal for chest acne, back acne, or anywhere else on your body where breakouts tend to take up more real estate.
Promising review: "I love the Rescue Bomb. It’s the perfect addition to my skincare routine and brings down the redness significantly. My favorite thing about it is the texture: It’s so creamy and makes my skin feel great!" —Alexandra W

1. A pack of Hero Cosmetics acne patches to drain 👏 those 👏 zits 👏 so you can avoid picking or any of the other lovely benefits of a usually longer-lasting breakout. They're gentler than acne cream, speed up recovery to practically overnight, and do all the ~heavy lifting~ for you.
Promising review (for the original patches): "I'm so bad about picking at little spots on my face (always makes it worse but I always do it anyway). Putting a patch on any spot I have clears it up so much faster and keeps me from making things worse."
