We’ve all done it and most of us LOVE to do it. Popping pimples is a universal mission we all face every now and then. Did you know you could be causing more harm than good? No matter how taunting a zit can be resist the urge to purge!

Irritation/Bleeding

As tempting as it is try to avoid poking and tearing at your pimples. By bursting these little annoyances you can prolong the healing process. It also causes inflammation turning your face bright red making the little bump you originally started with much more noticeable.

Scarring

Picking and squeezing your zits can cause horrible scarring that can last you all your life. So ask yourself, is it worth it? Is picking and poking at these little inflamed areas worth being permanently scarred? I would think not! Our bodies have a natural healing process and when you pop a pimple it causes a small crater that makes your body work harder to heal. When the lesion is healing it can produce more scar tissue which can be a different pigmentation causing a noticeable scar.

Infection

Think of each zit as a ball of oil, debris and bacteria that is sitting in your skin. Popping a zit and pushing out these disgusting toxins can lead to them affecting other pores causing more breakouts. The opposite of this can also happen when pinching these bumps causing the toxins to intrude inward initiating a possible infection.

Leave it to the Professionals

Dermatologist and well-trained estheticians know how to pop a pimple safely. You better let the pro’s do their job for you will be exposed to much less risk. As tempting as it can be to poke, pick, prick, and prod a pimple STOP yourself before it’s too late. You’ll thank me later.
