Please everyone, STOP POPPING YOUR PIMPLES!Picking at your face will cause scars, redness, broken vessels and more acne. trust me, It might be tempting to scoot up to the mirror and mess with your blemishes, but your face will be so much more prone to breakout and it can be very damaging to the skin. Most acne scars are from picking gone awry. Yes, sometimes it is just impossible to walk around with a big whitehead and your only option is to pop. There is a right way and a wrong way to pop a pimple if you must.
Dermatologists will tell you the following:
Clean your hands and the area. Don't use dirty hands, don't pop a pimple covered in makeup or oil.
Use hot water on a warm cloth to help open the pore.
Be gentle, and careful.
Pop only once. This is the most important rule. each time you go back and pick at the same sore you are increasing the risk of scarring and making the healing time much longer.
Apply a topical medicine or acne cream to the pimple.
Then leave it alone! Let your skin heal itself, and try not to touch your face. Keep it clean and drink plenty of water.
