If you’re going to pop a pimple, do it this way

  1. 1. If You’re Going To Pop A Pimple, Do It This WayDermatologists and moms everywhere always say to never pop a pimple — it can causeinfections, scarring and, if done incorrectly, even more pimples. But let’s be honest,sometimes when you see a big zit smack in the middle of your face, all you want to do ispick and squeeze the life out of it. Resist the urge! Instead of telling you to leave your adultacne alone altogether, let’s talk about the right way for getting rid of acne fast. This methodallows you the satisfying experience of popping your pimple without causing so muchredness, damage or irritation to the rest of your skin.First things first, if you have a special event the same day that you are considering poppingyour blemish, just forget it and leave your adult acne alone. Popping a pimple, even theright way, requires a little time for the skin to heal; it’s harder to immediately cover upbroken skin and redness, and make it look good. If you have an event, just apply a thinlayer of your acne skin care products or treatments, apply a light gel moisturizer to create agood base for your makeup, and then carefully blend some concealer and translucentpowder around the blemish to disguise it.
  2. 2. If you don’t have any big events on the horizon, make sure the blemish you want to breakis actually ready for this occurrence. If you can feel that the pimple is still deep under thesurface, it’s not ready, and picking at it will only make the bacteria push deeper into theskin and cause inflammation. If, however, the top of the blemish is a big, white spot — or awhitehead — it’s probably ready to go. Use your best judgment.When preparing to pop your pimple, first use a gentle acne skin care cleanser to clean yourface, and wash your hands with antibacterial soap. You don’t want any outside bacteria tomake its way into your pores as you work. Heat up a towel in warm water, and lay the towelover the spot for 15 or 20 minutes to help loosen the pores.Then, get a facial tissue and tear it in half. Wrap each half around each of your index fingersto create a barrier between your hands and your face. Then, using the pads of your fingers(not the nails), use a very gentle pressure to press down near the edge of the pimple. Donot press toward the center of the blemish, as this can cause it to move further into theskin. Once the pus has been removed, use your anti-acne facial skin care products or acnetreatments to apply a thin layer of antibiotic so your skin can heal. From this point on, don’tpick at the spot or it can get infected.Tired of adult acne breakouts? Learn more about the causes and get tips on how to treat &control adult acne breakouts.
