Popping pimples is one of the most disgusting yet satisfying things many people love doing. When you see it, you can’t help but squeeze it! It is a guilty pleasure, isn’t it? Well, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard that popping pimples is actually a bad thing, as it might result in infection or skin irritation. Dermatologists claim that people should not pick their skin; they advise us to barely even touch our face. But since we are very into popping pimples, here is a right – or more safe – way to do that!
1. Prep you skin.
The best way to try this is before bedtime. You have to give your skin time to heal.
2. Firstly, remove all your makeup and wash your face thoroughly!
Before popping the pimple, make sure to place a warm (not hot) wet towel on top of it; to make it softer.
3. Pierce the skin.
What you need to do now, is use a tool to pierce your pimple.
4. This will help to create a clean opening before you squeeze it out!
Make sure your tools are clean!
5. Press it!
This is the best part! But be careful. Don’t do it with bare hands!
6. Cover the tips of your two pointer fingers with a clean tissue.
Then place then on each side of your pimple and squeeze gently. Don’t worry it blood comes out along with the infection. In case you can’t pop it after three tries then stop! It is not ready yet, so try again some other time.
7. Take care of it!
Apply a soft treatment overnight to help it recover!
8. It is better to apply a spot treatment, once the whitehead has been extracted.
Always remember that popping pimples is a bad habit! But if you can’t help it here is a way to do it better.
