Healing Broken Skin From Pickingmakeup
Posted 16 September 2012 - 09:14 PM
Anyways, I'm just wondering if anyone has any miracle solutions for dealing with open broken skin and scabs? Do band-aids overnight really help? I've heard of using liquid band-aid over the spots to cover them with makeup but it sounds like it will just irritate the area more? What do you use to speed along healing? Thanks for your help!

Also neosporin creams with zinc are the best.

last time i used a bandaid (on my leg though, not for acne) i got a weird leathery dryness/rash where the bandaid sticks and later found out i was allergic to the adhesive. so id just say be careful about which bandaids you use, and how you position it since it might aggravate the acne around the spot youre covering

Scabs ARE a natural process of healing so I guess I kind of believe in them. For me, letting things scab over and letting nature take its course is the best thing for me.
