Can hydrocolloid bandages help with acne? Dermatologists weigh in on TikTok trend
Are Band-Aids the breakout star of the pimple-fighting game?
Some TikTok users — including beauty enthusiast Shannon Bruno — swear that hydrocolloid dressings designed to heal wounds can also clear up complexions.
“If you have acne with white pus and want it gone overnight, this is my best-kept secret. It’s only $3 at Walmart and will last you an entire month,” Bruno said in a viral video posted earlier this year.
“A Band-Aid itself can cause an allergic reaction and irritate sensitive skin,” Farber told TODAY. “I also wouldn’t recommend ripping a Band-Aid off your face. The sticky part is what concerns me.”
