The rise of the pimple patch era made people worry less about acne—especially when important occasions arise, and one is sitting right in the middle of your forehead.
Many skincare brands have come up with their own versions of a pimple patch, but when it comes to aesthetic, I think we found a winner. And yes, they’re not just circular small bandaids expected to blend with your skin. These ones are shaped like stars. And they’re actually meant to be seen.
Former beauty editor Julie Schott’s new skincare brand, Starface, is born out of the idea that pimples are inherently human, and are best treated with a bright yellow star.
“Working in beauty, I’ve always had access to the best skin-care products, education, dermatologists, studies — all of it,” Schott tells Refinery 29. “Still, I always had acne. It seemed like the more I tried, the worse my skin looked.”
But instead of getting frustrated, Julie found that the best remedy was to change her point of view on acne “Acne is hard because it’s partly hormonal, partly genetic. There are all these factors that influence our skin,” she explains. “There’s truly no magic treatment and acne affects everyone — literally 95 percent of the population — so I’m like, ‘Who gives a shit about a pimple or two?’
Starface was born to put a positive spin—a literal star—on acne treatments.
