You've finally overcome those teenage breakouts (even if it did take every spot cream, lotion and potion in mum's bedside drawer). Now you're in your 20s, enjoying the clear and calm complexion that you deserve. That is until a big, fat, juicy pimple - or two - appear overnight and freak-out mode is swiftly reinstated.

Adult acne is currently one of the most common skin concerns that people deal with. With covid face masks having become the latest accessory, many of us that outgrew teen acne (or never suffered with it at all) are experiencing breakouts across our nose, mouth, cheeks and chin.

Luckily, the skincare industry has come a long way since we celebrated our sweet sixteen. Homemade spot-busting solutions – we’re looking at you toothpaste – are a thing of the past and we can now tackle unwanted zits, spots and blemishes with innovative treatments, such as acne patches. Much more effective than popping and picking, pimple patches absorb fluid, dirt and oil from acne spots, leaving skin less inflamed, less red, and in a better position to heal.

Sound like something your skin would appreciate? Keep scrolling to discover the best acne patches that clear pimples overnight - or throughout the day, they're not picky when it comes to blemish-busting!
