Myth: Popping Pimples Makes Them Go Away Faster
Fact: Though popping a pimple may make it seem less noticeable temporarily, squeezing the pimple can cause it to stay around longer. Popping a pimple can cause bacteria from the pimple to go deeper into the skin. In addition, sometimes popping a pimple causes a mark to form that could last months.
Solution: Don't pick! Instead, a specialist pimple fighting cleanser can be used morning and night and also assists in removing dirt and oil that tends to build up on the skin and cause blocked pores. Look for ingredients like salicylic acid.
