If you don’t know what the greatest invention to a teenager’s life is, then I’m here to tell you it’s a simple thing called pimple patches. A Pimple patch is a patch that can protect or speed the process of healing your pimple. You can even wear the patch when you just want to hide your acne. This is the best and easiest way to hide a pimple or to just help your pimple out. A lot of people around the school have them and it’s a totally normal thing to see nowadays they have many different shapes and sizes; for example, you can get a clear one to not make the pimple noticeable and there is way more where that came from. There’s shapes like stars, hearts, and circles and many other options you can choose from. Now you don’t have to feel embarrassed or insecure because that’s what pimple patches are meant for: covering your acne.

Irvin Sanchez-Moralas (Secretary of the class of 2024) modeling a pimple patch.

Pimple patches are patches for your acne that can either protect or speed the process of your pimple or what some people do is put a patch on to hide a pimple. Pimple patches have become more common for people to see because of how many people use the patches. Pimple patches were very popular in South Korea and Japan before they became popular in The United States. In South Korea, they were known to be in the K-beauty routine.

A Senior Irvin Sanchez-Morales said “Pimple patches are used to hide pimples and treat them because people now and days are really insecure about their face and the acne that gets on your face so they use pimple patches as a way to not only hide the big pimple but to also treat the pimple so that way it’s not on your face as long as it would be without a patch.” Another Senior Berenice Vargas said “the more I use pimple patches, the faster my pimples tend to go away. Pimple patches make me feel less insecure and I love how many different colors and designs there are for pimple patches. I would much rather have a cute star-shaped pimple patch than be seen with a red pimple on my face.” In school, you see your classmates with pimple patches on, and it is totally normal for people to see them as just another thing.

In school, you see lots of people with patches on. There’s many people with different shapes and colors the patches can let them express themselves with whatever patch you put on. I hope this trend goes on and on because they really are helpful in mine and others’ daily life. You can find Pimple Patches at Target, Amazon, Walmart, and other retailers.
