Doctor Reveals The Best Way To Pop A Pimple Without Damaging The Skin

On the Oprah Winfrey show, Dr Mehmet Oz said that most of us cannot leave a pimple alone without bursting it. Well, even if that makes our skin slightly bruised and red later on, we would still want to pop that zit and get rid of it as soon as possible. But most of us are doing it right. First of all, don't squeeze it out because you might end up macerating the skin around it which would lead to permanent damage to the skin. 

Here are certain techniques explained by the dermatologist on how to attack pimples without leaving a scar.

The skin has already pushed the pus upwards to eliminate it so you could just give a reinforcement by a swift motion of the needle in an upward direction. The technique might take some time, but it is definitely better than getting dirty fingertips over the pimples because that may lead to the spread of bacteria to other areas of the skin.

By using this technique, you can emit the pus out from the existing pimple without damaging any surrounding skin tissue.

Once that is done, use a clean cotton ball with some antiseptic liquid to clean the area and apply some antiseptic ointment so that bacteria won't spread to the adjacent skin.
