Can You Put Makeup Over a Pimple Patch?

What is a pimple patch?

A pimple patch is essentially a small, round adhesive bandage that covers up pimples. It works by creating a protective barrier over the affected area, which prevents bacteria from entering and worsening a breakout. Peace Out Acne Day Dot is made with a patented, clean Hydrocolloid Polymer Technology. This innovative material gently extracts oil and impurities, protects against external irritants and delivers the acne-fighting ingredient, Encapsulated Salicylic Acid. 

How to Apply Makeup Over a Pimple Patch

Some people prefer to wear makeup around their pimple patches because it helps to camouflage an active breakout while keeping makeup away from it. However, Acne Day Dot was designed with a specialized top layer to adhere makeup, enabling you to wear makeup on top. All it takes is a few simple steps.

Tips for Applying Makeup Over Acne Day Dot 

  • Apply a Day Dot to clean, dry skin, directly on your pimple and press firmly.
  • Dust translucent powder over your face, then mist with setting spray (wait 10-15 seconds before moving to the next step). 
  • Apply Peace Out Instant Pore Perfector (or your primer of choice), dabbing lightly onto skin. 
  • Apply foundation and/or concealer, using a fluffy brush to build your desired level of coverage on the dot. 

Mistakes to Avoid When Wearing Pimple Patches 

Acne Day Dot is a great way to cover up those pesky pimples that pop up at the most inopportune times. However, when you wear pimple patches under makeup, there are some common mistakes that can end up minimizing their efficacy or making your skin worse than before.

  • If you're experiencing excess dryness, open wounds or went a little heavy handed with exfoliation or active ingredients, give your skin a little rest before using pimple patches.
  • To ensure all day wear, don't apply skincare before putting on your pimple patch.
  • Be gentle when removing pimple patches from their sheet. A set of round or flat tipped tweezers can help to avoid damaging them.
