Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by a bulldozing pimple mid-day? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏽♂️
Well BFFs - we’d be lying if we said we NEVER thought about giving our zits a good squeeze. I mean - deep down there is a little popaholic in all of us, right?Well it’s time to kick that habit to the curb with our Sephora best-selling spot treatment - Peace Out Acne. These acne-healing stickers are made to safely speed the healing of your blemish, while also preventing you from picking at your pimple throughout the day. Infused with salicylic acid, aloe vera and vitamin A, these dots are both powerful and safe for even the most sensitive skin.If you’re wondering whether the dangers of pimple popping are even real - let us assure you they most definitely are. Let’s break it down:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
