If you are suffering from the unpleasant effects of the widespread skin inflammation that comes with acne, or even if you just have a few random spots, you have probably considered resorting to the technique known as pimple popping. Although pimple popping is sometimes frowned upon, it is not in itself a good thing or a bad one. Like most actions, its outcome depends on how you do it.
There is a time and a place for most things, and this includes pimple popping. Anyone suffering from whiteheads or blackheads is a good candidate for having their pimples popped, and if they cannot afford a professional dermatologist they can still achieve the same results at home. All that they need is to get hold of a comedone extractor and take a few moments to learn how to use it. (If you are wondering why it is called a ‘comedone extractor,’ the answer is very simple. ‘Comedone’ is the official word for a type of pimple.)
More important than the name is the technique. This primarily requires excellent hygiene. Sterilise the extractor by boiling it, then clean your skin thoroughly with antiseptic. Use the metal loop on the extractor to gently force the contents out of the pimple, then clean thoroughly again with antiseptic.
That’s all it takes to get rid of your blackhead or whitehead pimples!
