The Invisible Sticker that Fights Acne
By Liz Ritter, Executive Editor |
When Peter Thomas Roth’s flawless-skinned staff discusses the very personal tribulations of fighting those really painful acne flare-ups, you listen to be polite, but secretly want to shake them and yell, “You have no idea!” Until they read your mind and challenge you to look closer: They are all wearing little plastic discs on their faces to treat their acne.
Yes, they’ve invented these tiny over-makeup patches that adhere to skin, treat breakouts to a very serious dose of salicylic acid, stop bacteria from spreading and just take down blemishes—even those really inflamed ones that hurt—stat. They work, you (and everyone else) can’t see them and you feel like a bit of a skin-care supersleuth every time you stick one on.
