Pimples- I think most of us would have suffered this problem at some point in our lives. And I am no stranger to pimples. I grew up in a small town and went to a women’s city college for my higher studies.
You know what? I felt like a fish out of the pond there. Some girls were mean, and I repeat, really mean. Added to this, one fine day, I got a big pimple on my cheek. My God! My future looked dark. To set things straight, I pricked it and got an acne breakout. Sandpaper situations in life make you a stronger person. Having been there and done that, here I am with some wise counsel for you.
Why should you not pop a pimple?
Zakiya Rice a reputed professor in skincare, says in WebMD that a pustule keeps the bacteria nice and contained. When puncturing the pimple, the gunk oozes out, and the bacteria splatters and lands inside other pores. This leads to more pimples.
Moreover, you may introduce new kinds of bacteria from your finger into the zit, and the pimples become more red, inflamed, and infected. Sometimes this may lead to permanent scarring.
