Charcoal Nose Strip
Charcoal nose strips are designed to adhere to the skin and, upon removal, help to extract blackheads and dirt from clogged pores. The adhesive quality of the strip aids in pulling out these impurities as the strip is peeled off. These strips can provide a quick way to target and remove debris from the nose area.
Step 1: Start with a clean face. Thoroughly wet your nose to activate the adhesive.
Step 2: Peel plastic backing from pore strip and apply to nose, smooth side down. Press to ensure even contact with skin.
Step 3: Allow the pore strip to remain untouched for a period of 10-15 minutes, until it has hardened. Prolonged use could damage your skin, so don't leave the nose strip on for too long.
Step 4: Gently peel off pore strip, starting at edges and pulling toward center.
Step 5: Rinse residue and gleefully inspect the strip for evidence of gunk.
Salicylic Acid Dots
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that is commonly used in skincare products for its ability to penetrate into pores and exfoliate the inside of the pore lining. It helps to break down the bonds between dead skin cells and encourages the shedding of these cells, preventing pore clogging. These patches deliver salicylic acid directly to the pimple, where it can help reduce inflammation and redness and encourage the pimple to shrink. It also aids in preventing further breakouts by keeping the pore clear.
When used in skincare, hydrocolloid patches create a moist environment that facilitates the absorption of exudate (pus or fluid) from a pimple or whitehead. These dots can help to flatten the whitehead, absorb the fluid, and create a barrier that prevents dirt and bacteria from entering the wound. This barrier effect can minimize the risk of infection and promote faster healing.
How To Use Pimple Patches
Step 2: Cover the entire whitehead or blemish with the dot, pressing to ensure even contact with the skin.
Step 3: Allow the dot to remain in place for 6-8 hours, or overnight.
Step 4: Remove and discard the dot.
