Pimples are generally hated and we go to extremes like putting toothpaste on them to make them disappear. Popping your pimples doesn’t solve your pimple problem; yes it is gives immediate results but doing this can lead to more problems.

Dermatologists don’t approve of the immediate action of popping pimples because:

  • It can leave the pimple spot infected and cause a breakout of even more pimples.
  • The facial skin is very sensitive, so while attempting to burst the pimple, there is the possibility that your hands may be dirty, carrying bacteria.
  • Your sharp nails will injure your skin causing it to scar.
  • After popping a pimple, there is the likelihood of a blackhead appearing and it’s far more difficult to get rid of those as opposed to a little pimple.

So before you venture into popping your pimples, do have in mind that there are alternatives. There are several facial products available to handle your pimples in a safer and less painful manner. However if you insist on popping the pimple:

  • It’s important that you wash your hands first.
  • Get a cotton wool and clean the area around the pimple with facial cleanser, wash you face with some warm water.
  • And then pop it with sanitary wipes.

The best bet will be hands off that pimple!
