In recent years, pimple patches have become a popular way to get rid of acne quickly. These little stickers zap away zits thanks to their ability to absorb pus and gunk, speeding up the healing process.

As Allurereports, TikTok users are sticking these bandages all over their faces and removing them the following morning to unveil clear-looking skin.
Hydrocolloid bandages aren’t anything new—they’ve been used by medical professionals for various types of wound healing for years. Skinfluencer Kali Kushner posted about using them on her Instagram in 2016.
