Exfoliation is a great thing to do leading up to your makeup appointment but I don’t suggest any physical exfoliation within 24-48 hours of your makeup application, ESPECIALLY if you’re experiencing inflamed acne. Physical exfoliation can cause micro-tears or injuries to the skin so by avoiding them within a few days of your big event, you’re less likely to experience the inflammatory response.

Pimple patches remove layers of skin, like other forms of exfoliation, but in this case, the skin removal is in a targeted area. Because of this, there is a visible line of delineation around the area where the patch was and it can be hard to cover this with makeup as it is a textural issue.
It is easier to cover a pimple with makeup that has not been “messed with”. This includes, picking, popping, even looking at for too long since sometimes that can even piss the little guy off LOL
