Why are Nature Spell's Hydrocolloid Patches better than other brands out there?
The key difference is all to do with the quality of the hydrocolloid used. Most other brands will mix solvents into their hydrocolloid to help speed up production but overall reduces the quality of the patch thus making it less effective. NOT US. Clear My Spots by Nature Spell DOES NOT use any additional solvents or ingredients. This does take longer to produce but in turn, creates a more effective product. We have still maintained our social belief in always creating the highest quality product, effective for all and affordable for all. We don't believe in high prices and are transparent with our ingredients and the prices across our entire range.
How does hydrocolloid work?
Hydrocolloid is an adhesive and waterproof material that creates a moist environment when applied on a spot, which in turn maintains the optimum conditions to heal your spots. They are translucent and help you avoid picking and popping pimples which can create more bacteria and more breakouts. They are gentle acne patches that improve the look of blemishes overnight, without causing irritation to your skin
What spots do they work best on?
They are perfect for whiteheads and spots that have come to a head. They are mostly for spots that have come to a head, as they are made from hydrocolloid which is a moisture absorbing ingredient. However, Clear My Spots patches can help to bring ‘under the skin’ spots to the surface more quickly, which in turn will lead to you being able to remove them faster and clear your skin. They can still be used on all types of spots to keep them clean and protected as they will prevent you from touching, picking and squeezing the spots and exposing them to the environment. The pimple patches create a barrier to protect the skin, even if they cannot completely remove the spots.
How long do I keep the patch on?
For best results, we always suggest leaving the pimple patches on for 6+ hours and for best results you can leave overnight. When the translucent part in the middle of the pimple patch has turned opaque white, then you can take it off.
How many patches does it take to clear a spot up?
This depends on how large and severe the spot is and varies across all skin types. Every spot is different, what we say is that for most skin types, 1 to 2 patches should be enough for one spot and it will do the magic. But do not worry if you have to use more, this is normal and is why we provide a large pack of 36 patches so they last you a long time.
Can I keep them on overnight? What about the shower?
Yes, we recommend using them overnight for best results. They are also waterproof and have strong adhesion, so you can go about your day, even keep them on during your shower without having to worry about the patches falling off.
At what stage during my skincare routine should I apply the hydrocolloid patches?
We recommend cleansing your skin and then applying the pimple patch.
If I need to use more than one patch, can I replace the hydrocolloid patches with a new one straight away? Yes, it is completely fine to remove your dot and replace it with a new one straight away if required to use it again.
