While we all hopefully know by now that popping pimples is a big no-no, it’s not the end of the world if you do end up popping it. But it is important to take extra care of the spot afterward to help the healing process along.

We get it. Sometimes a pimple pops up at the most inconvenient time and you just want to get rid of it immediately. So, you pop the pimple and bam the whitehead is gone. But, oftentimes you’re left with redness and some irritation after squeezing a pimple. Sometimes the spot may also end up bleeding.

In this case, it’s important to clean up the spot and use proper after care so you don’t further damage the skin or get left with post-blemish hyperpigmentation.


What can I do once I’ve popped a pimple?

Depending on the state of the popped pimple, caring for the spot can be pretty simple.

After popping a pimple, you can apply our Soothing Blemish Patch to help protect the spot from any outside irritants or finger picking. The Soothing Blemish Patch is infused with hydrating and calming ingredients to help soothe an irritated blemish, including popped pimples.

Patching up a popped pimple can also help keep the skin protected from any other bacteria getting in the skin that could potentially cause infection.

But, If you pop a pimple and it starts bleeding, then use a clean tissue to apply gentle pressure to stop the bleeding. If that doesn’t work to stop the bleeding, then you can apply some ice to the spot. Once the bleeding stops you can clean the spot and apply the Soothing Blemish Patch afterwards. Keep the patch on for 6 to 8 hours and replace with a new patch until the spot has healed.


What’s in the Soothing Blemish Patch?


Our Soothing Blemish Patch contains Aloe, Tea Tree Oil, Madecassic Acid, and Hydrocolloid to protect the skin and speed up the healing of the popped or irritated blemish.

🧪 Ingredient Breakdown:


If you’ve ever experienced a really bad sunburn then you’re probably already familiar with Aloe’s soothing properties. Its ability to calm discomfort from redness and irritation makes it the perfect ingredient for irritated and popped pimples (especially since popping pimples usually leaves behind a bit of redness).

😌 Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree Oil has long been a staple in skincare, especially for treating and preventing breakouts. As an anti-inflammatory ingredient, Tea Tree Oil is great for reducing swelling that usually occurs after squeezing a zit.


🛡️Madecassic Acid

While Madecassic Acid may not sound super familiar, it actually comes from the well-known Cica plant, the same ingredient in your favorite soothing creams. Madecassic Acid helps support the healing process, speeding along the healing of a popped or irritated pimple.



Hydrocolloid has long been used in medical environments to help with wound healing. The material helps create a moist environment for the purpose of boosting healing and helps absorb impurities from a wound. As a pimple patch, hydrocolloid helps extract pus and oil while also helping heal the blemish.

So, if you’re dealing with irritated pimples or if you just squeezed a pimple, patch on the Soothing Blemish Patch to calm the blemish and help the spot heal quicker.

Additionally, patching up a popped pimple can help reduce the chance of the spot scarring. But, sometimes post-blemish marks are unfortunately unavoidable, especially if you’ve tried popping a blind pimple.


What can I do about post-acne marks?

Once the spot has healed but you find yourself now dealing with post-acne marks, you can apply our Dark Spot Brightening Patch to help speed along the fading process of any leftover spots.
