Why It’s Bad To Pop Your Pimples

INTRODUCING NEW BACTERIA

Even if you are an expert handwasher, there is a ton of bacteria embedded in the underbelly of our nails. When you pop pimples with your hands or other tools that are not sterilized, you’re only introducing new bacteria at the heart of the blemish.

POTENTIAL SKIN TEARING

Zit popping can be a lot like road rage - sometimes you get too immersed you don’t realize how much tugging and tearing you’re actually doing to permanently damage the skin.

ENCOURAGING NEW ZITS TO FORM

Pimples can get cliquey sometimes, and the bacteria erupting from one zit can be the seed that makes multiple grow back in the same area.  

LONG-TERM SCARRING

This goes back to our sensitive our facial skin is. Playing with your zits can lead to different kinds of long-term scarring - everything from dark spots to permanent indentations within the skin.
