The other morning, as I was removing an acne patch, I was actually thinking, What would we do without these?? Acne patches have been gone forever but I still can’t remember a time when I didn’t reach for one to flatten a pimple overnight. That’s why I had to collect some of the best acne patches so I can spread the word about how awesome they are. There used to be only one or two options from Korean beauty brands but now there are dozens (or more) to choose from. How do you decide which is best for you and your acne? There are several ways.

First, you have to know what acne patches really are. Most of them are made from hydrocolloid, which was originally used as a wound dressing in the 1980s. Hydrocolloids are made from gel-forming agents such as pectin or gelatin (some patches are vegan and gelatin-free) that actually suck up the pus. and fluid inside the wound (or pimple) and lock it into the material. Think of acne patches as a safe way to “squeeze” acne without scarring or the risk of bacterial infection. They also protect the area from external irritants, including your picking fingers.

In recent years, brands have taken this hydrocolloid patch to the next level by adding active ingredients. I find that typical hydrocolloid patches are best for mature acne breakouts. If you can see white, these should work for you. For new breakouts that are deep under the skin, choose a patch with ingredients like salicylic acid to hit the pimple deep into the pore and flatten it before the pimple gets bigger and bigger. These ways are sometimes less “satisfying” but actually work for more cystic acne.

Below, shop some of my favorite acne patches for all types of acne. Wear one under your mask to ward off maskne — no one can tell.
