I know this isn’t the most exciting topic. But I know I am not the only one who regrets popping a pimple here and there. I was browsing the web and stubbled on the website Now I don’t have horrific acne, but I do get the occasional breakout here and there, even being 21. I wanted to share this information with everyone because I know how stressful it is to have an unwanted breakout.

“Common advice is to let your body heal a pimple on its own without popping. But in the real world, some people absolutely refuse to go around with a bulging white zit for the world to see. Plus, when done properly, popping a pimple can actually be beneficial to the healing process. Reserve this technique only for pimples that are absolutely begging to be popped—all the way at the surface and white. After a shower is best, when the skin is supple.”

  1. Disinfect a needle with rubbing alcohol. A basic sharp sewing needle is a good choice.
  2. Gently prick the pimple’s surface.
  3. Take two tissues and wrap your index fingers with them.
  4. Squeeze from the sides, confidently but gently, using a down-and-in motion. Don’t force it. If the pimple is ready, it’ll pop. If it doesn’t, leave it be. Be sure to stop if clear fluid or blood starts to come out.
  5. Continuing to work at a lesion that is not ready to be popped will most definitely introduce unnecessary irritation , and can also increase the chance of scarring. Walk away from the mirror!
