I see all these discussions on popping pimples. I also squeeze my pores - till the white guk comes out. I'll spend like 10+ minutes infront of the mirror everyday. It feels so cleansing. but I know it's so bad and probably leads to pimples. Why do I feel that this is so odd?! please post if you do this too. Let's try to stop together. I think that by not doing this my skin might balance out, and less white stuff will form! Anyone knowledagble?!

thanks!

By popping the pimple(s), you are causing irritation to the pimple itself and the surrounding area, which may lead to more of them.

It's best to just leave them be and let them heal on their own.

I am guilty of this as well. I can't help it! Every time I happen to walk by a mirror and notice my pores, I just end up squeezing them for a few minutes until I'm satisfied. Not more than a minute later, though, I'm upset at having no self-control and making my skin look even worse. :(
