Anyone that’s ever watched an Asian drama or music video knows the feeling: You try to keep your focus on the story or the music, but you just can’t help notice how perfect your ult’s skin is! Is it just good genes? Or do they have access to skincare secrets we just don’t know about?
The answer isn’t a secret at all! Many Asian idols have shared that the key to clear skin is actually a clever spot gel and pimple patch combo. All you have to do is zero in on the zit and treat it with a spot gel or cover it up with a discreet pimple patch.
Asia’s leading acne care brand Acnes has its own solution to help you clear up and cheer up like an Asian star! Acnes’ Anti-Acne Spot Gel is packed with powerful ingredients like Cica extract, sulfur, salicylic acid (BHA), licorice extract, and vitamin E, with the gentle formula effectively controlling oil, unclogs pores, calms skin, and restoring your skin’s elasticity.
With its skin-friendly pH level, the lightweight gel lets you say bye-bye to irritation and lighten acne scars. Application is also super easy. Simply apply the gel 2-3 times a day to inflamed pimples without pus and watch them shrink in just 3 days! If you need further inspiration, look to Joy of K-pop girl group Red Velvet who focuses on treating any breakouts with a spot treatment.
There is also Acnes’ invisible Anti-Acne Pimple Patch that allows you to heal your breakouts with pus and active wound even while running errands or going out. The incredibly thin hydrocolloid patch functions as a sponge, efficiently absorbing pus and oil. It also acts as a protective shield, preventing the entry of bacteria and dirt. It’s also sweat-proof and breathable, perfect for wearing under makeup. No wonder Asian stars have been known to swear by this routine, with members of K-pop boy band Pentagon wearing acne stickers before performing. Even Blackpink’s Rosé swears by pimple patches and carries them everywhere she goes!
The Anti-Acne Spot Gel and the Anti-Acne Pimple Patch aren’t all Acnes has to offer. The Japanese brand invested heavily into extensive research on Asian skin to bring you products like Acnes Creamy Wash, a soap-free cleanser enriched with amino acids, specifically designed for sensitive, acne-prone skin. The Acnes Powder Lotion effectively balances sebum production, preventing clogged pores. There is also the Acnes Oil-Control Moisturizer which replenishes moisture and soothes the skin.
Like the Anti-Acne Spot Gel, all of Acnes’ products contain the key healing ingredients Centella asiatica, or Cica. Cica is known for its calming, wound-healing, and anti-aging properties, helping to soothe irritated skin, promote skin regeneration, and improve overall skin health.
With Acnes’ Anti-Acne Spot Gel and Anti-Acne Pimple Patch and other products taking care of your skin, you can now take breakouts in stride and get that clear, smooth idol skin you’ve always wanted!
