Excellent semi-private treatment for face pickers, May 28, 2013

This review is from: Nexcare Acne Absorbing Cover, Two Sizes, 36 Count (Misc.)
I am a horrible face-toucher who unconsciously picks at bumps, and that’s really bad for a 40+ y.o. adult with break-outs on fair skin that doesn’t heal as quickly as it used to. I won’t go on about my attempts to PREVENT pimples and will instead focus this review on my attempts to HEAL them.I’ve tried EVERYTHING: steroid tape, band-aids, tegaderm…hydrocolloid dressing works best for my sensitive skin. My favorite is the Compeed cold sore patches (yes, I use them for zits, not cold sores – 5 stars anyway) but that became cost-prohibitive. I bought some large hydrocolloid wound patches which I could trim as needed to fit over my bumps, and that works for as a night time cover (even the “extra thin” dressing is still to bulkly for public wear – plus it’s beige and I have fair skin). But I still wanted something I could hopefully wear on my face during the day…I purchased these hoping they were a little lighter, less bulky, and therefore suitable for wearing in public. Alas, while they were lighter and thinner, they’re still too dark and noticeable against my skin and thus inappropriate (IMO) for work. However, being that I’d rather get second glances from strangers than get pock-marked, I wear them out and about and just deal. I personally can NOT wear them with make-up b/c that makes them come off (and they don’t stick all that well in the first place). But otherwise, they work as intended: suck out the bad stuff, reduce redness, provide coverage and protection against picking, and speed the healing process. I will continue to buy and use them as they’re more budget-friendly than Compeed, and save the Compeed for urgent needs.
(BTW, I also treat zits – once past the eruption stage – with Carmex. I have found that it works wonders for “older” skin…it has salicylic acid and hydrating ingredients that are perfect for my skin type.)
