13 Best Pimple Patches To Clear Spots  Blemishes Overnight

The best pimple patches and acne stickers to clear spots and blemishes overnight

These pimple patches actually work.

And there's another major bonus: acne stickers do a great job at stopping you from picking or squeezing your blemish, preventing the transfer of bacteria and acting as an extra layer of protection for your skin.

Facialist Sarah Chapman says, “Hydrocolloid pimple patches are hygienic – they stick to your skin and create a shield from other irritants like daily dirt and pollution. Used on spots, they also calm redness and irritation, encouraging the skin to heal.”

But what about if you've already picked a pimple and you've been left with a weeping wound? Fret not, we've all been there. Adding a drop of tea tree oil to the acne spot and then covering it with a pimple patch works miracles. It stops it from scabbing over and helps prevent any acne scars. Not an excuse to keep picking, but this can help when you’re left with a bit of a situation. For early-stage pimples, you can dab on some aloe vera, which is known not only for its hydrating properties, but for its soothing and anti-bacterial abilities as an acne-fighting ingredient too.

But which is the best option for you? That's the question. To help you make the right choice, we've put together a full edit of all the best acne patches available to buy now. We've made sure to include a wide variety of options to suit all skin types, budgets and personal preferences. Hopefully you won't need them, but it definitely won't hurt having them around just in case.
