why do ppl keep telling us NOT to squeeze out our blackheads??

Recommended Posts

Squeezing has the potential to lead to scarring, spreading infection, inflaming the blackheads, etc. And squeezing them out will do no good, they will just fill right back up.

I squeezed my pimples. As a result I have some scars. However, its better then having this disgusting huge pimple on ur face ;)

I actually find that, if I'm being a good girl and using my acne meds, just gently washing them gets rid of them, especially in the shower.

Use an extraction tool if you really need to remove. When I squeezed it caused a couple large pores so I no longer use fingers. I no longer have blackheads anyway due to mandelic acid and extraction. That was it. Cured. Don't squeeze there's no need.

I only extract mine when they're ready to come out. The regimen I'm using loosens them up very well, and makes them very easy to extract. If I try to extract one, and it seems to not want to come out yet, then I leave it so I don't damage my skin, and I'll just wait until it's a little looser in there.
