Stacey Solomon just shared a zit-zapping hack and it costs less than £5

Stacey Solomon is forever generous with her fashion, interiors and beauty tips and tricks on social media, and her latest beauty hack is a real doozy.

Proving that even celebs get zits, Stacey took to Instagram to reveal that she was trying out spot stickers for the first time. For the uninitiated, spot stickers (or zit stickers, pimple patches or whatever you want to call them) are the revolutionary blemish-zapping treatment that seem like a fad that shouldn’t work, but they actually really do.

They’re tiny sticky patches, usually made from hydrocolloid (a healing dressing often used on post-surgery wounds) and packed with spot-fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid, niacinamide and tea tree oil, that you apply directly to your pimple to provide direct treatment to reduce the spot fast.

Stacey wrote on Instagram: ‘Apparently if you stick the sticker on your spot and leave it for 2 hours it’ll disappear. I don’t know why I get sucked into these things. My head spot isn’t bad today every cycle it gets really angry and sore and almost never goes away so maybe this will work. If not, fringe it is!’

Clearly Stacey was just as dubious as we first were about spot stickers, and while she might not see the spot totally vanish in 2 hours, we’re sure she will have seen a reduction in its appearance.

The Loose Women star didn’t share which exact brand she used, however it looked a lot like the By Beauty Bay Dot-A-Spot Blemish Stickers. Normally £5.95 for a pack of 72 stickers, they’re currently on sale with 30 per cent off, making them an even more purse friendly £4.15.

These spot stickers have been getting great reviews lately, with one shopper saying: ‘I love it, when I put it on a spot, it brings up a head on it the next day, and it really calms down my under the skin spots. Worth the money!’

Another said: ‘Doesn’t do miracles but it helps a lot with some blemishes. I purchased these for myself, and my sister and my mom did like the product and bought more for them. Is a good product because it prevents the spot for getting bigger, it lasts less, and also is a barrier between your spot and your hands so you can’t touch it.’
