well it's super hard not to pick at a pimple. that's why people always do it.

anywaysss

my facialist told me that people SHOULD pop pimples

because not popping it will just make it stay in the skin

and some other stuff.

but i forgot...

anyways, if you do pop it, my facialist says there is a CERTAIN way to pop it.

its okay to pop pimples but NEVER use your bare hands or your nails. Always use two q-tips one on each side or tear a paper towel in half

The safest way to pop a white head that's all the way at the surface is to burn the tip of a needle and rub it with alcohol. Gently prick the surface of the pimple once and then grab a tissue and push it down and up.

Yeah pop pop ...i wont pop my pimples ...i dont like it when they bleed ...because if i pop a pimple it bleeds . when it bleeds there will be blemish ...i let it dry .....pimples are not like white heads or blackheads ...i think they just pop out from the surface and stays there ...but i put one whole bunch of BP on it ..so i dries quickly and kills the bacteria in it ...so far so good ...hate popping pimples(afraid of scarring) ....i have acne but i have no scars and my pores is small . i hardly pick or pop any pimples ..let it heal by itself ..oh yeah i'm using casor salt ..i guess if i spell it correctly . sea salt without iodine to wash my face twice a day ......to reduce inflammation and any unwanted red marks ...

No. Took the 30 days no picking challenge myself, and I'm glad I did. My face has a LOT LESS breakouts now.

I popped every single one on my face a few months ago and it led to severe scarring. My face is like piles of red chili now.

Don't pick/pop them. Let your skin do the job. Never touch your face other than washing.

It is not a must but if the pimple is really huge, ripe and refuses to go away, draining it can really help with the healing. But leave that to a professional therapist. You might cause scars if u do it wrongly or force out the gunk before its ready to pop.
