PATCHOLOGY Breakout Box Blemish Treatment
These patches and strips contain anti-inflammatory and bacteria-banishing ingredients—like salicylic acid, tea tree oil and witch hazel—to start healing spots and unclogging pores in a matter of hours. The pimple shrinking dots are nearly invisible medicated patches with a potent blend of salicylic acid, tea tree oil and volcanic ash to help target sub-surface problems before they erupt. The whitehead-absorbing dots help extract impurities and start the healing process. The blackhead-eliminating strips help to remove dirt, excess sebum and dead skin cells to help decongest and minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, and contain charcoal, Moroccan lava clay and witch hazel.
How to use
When using the nose strips, begin with a clean face then thoroughly wet your nose to activate adhesive. Peel the plastic backing from the strip and apply to your nose, smooth side down. Press to ensure even contact with skin. Allow the strip to dry in place for 10–15 minutes until stiff. Gently peel off the strip, starting at the edges and pulling toward the center. Rinse off residue. When using the hydrocolloid and salicylic acid dots, make sure the entire affected area is clean. Peel an appropriate-sized dot from the plastic backing. Cover the entire whitehead or blemish with the dot, pressing to ensure even contact with skin. Allow the dot to remain in place for 6–8 hours or overnight. Remove and discard.
