No matter how gentle i was my face, some pimples pop

No matter how gentle i wash my face, some pimples pop. I know that popping pimples can lead to scarring and this leaves me with scars because i cant control it, i try my best to wash gently, WITH MY HANDS ONLY. all i get is whiteheads too. :/

you could always pop your spots the correct way to reduce the chances of scaring?

do a google search.

I think that if a pimple is ready to pop and your being very gentle with washing then its ok. Its when you start to apply pressure to popping a pimple that its more likely to scar.

okay... well by scarring i mean red marks. is that the same thing?


no  not really.
in my  experience you cant stop red marks (often called "post acne marks"), its just apart of acne. - they fade but it takes time.
