December 21, 2022 SOS acne spots are clear, sticker-like patches that use hydrocolloid technology to help eliminate acne blemishes by absorbing secretions and impurities in the skin. December 21, 2022 Almost every dermatologist and beauty expert advises people to “not pick” their pimples, whiteheads, or acne, but we’re humans and sometimes can’t control the urge. However, picking at the pimples often turns a small, harmless bump into a sore open wound with pus, oils, and sometimes blood. SOS acne patches will help save your skin from that unfortunate happening by acting as a protective layer over the affected area. The patches serve both to alleviate the irritation associated with pimples while also preventing you form picking at them.
