Let’s face it: Breakouts are no fun at all. Getting a zit is kind of the worst, and waiting for it to heal can be a painful process in more ways than one. A new skin-care brand called Starface is hoping to alleviate some of that stress with its brand-new launch, Hydro-Stars, a pack of 32 hydrocolloid pimple patches that help you banish those zits for good…and make you smile. You may have used pimple patches before, but you’ve probably never used pimple patches shaped like stars!
So how do Hydro-Stars work? They’re little star-shaped patches, almost like stickers, that you apply directly to a zit — on clean, dry skin, of course. The patch will help you resist the urge to touch and pick the zit, keeping it free from bacteria that could make things even worse, and uses hydrocolloid, a serum-like substance that works to speed up healing and recovery. The Starface team recommends using the patches on zits that have a decent amount of fluid or pus underneath the surface for best results, and keeping the patches on for about six hours, then removing them once they’ve turned “opaque-ish.” The stars are so cute and cheeky that you may want to take a selfie or two while they’re hard at work shrinking your zits — and that’s exactly the point! The Hydro-Stars make dealing with a breakout just a little bit more fun, and much more photogenic.
Ready to send your breakouts off into space? Hydro-Stars retail for $22 for a pack of 32 and can be found exclusively on the Starface website.
