Skin acts as a strong and flexible armour that protects us from external elements. However, it does not distinguish between harmful factors such as germs and pollutions, that you might want to keep on the outside surface, and good elements such as vitamins and skincare ingredients, which should go into the deeper layers of the skin. For decades, the medical world has used patches for a variety of ailments, as they can deliver more of the ingredients to the skin in a more concentrated area.
Introducing Patchology, a skincare brand that offers a wide range of patches, which effectively and efficiently address specific skin concerns using clinically-proven ingredients, innovative technologies and delivery techniques. The products are also inspired by the backstage tricks of top makeup artists, as these targeted quick fixes result in a perfected finish that’s primed for makeup or ready to be left bare and beautiful.
Here are some of the best-selling products from Patchology:
