Q: Will popping pimples make them go away faster? A: Let’s make this clear…absolutely, positively not! It might seem like popping a stubborn pimple will make it instantly go away, but that’s unfortunately not the case. By popping a pimple, you’re spreading all the dirt, germs and bacteria from your fingertips back into the pimple itself and across the rest of your clear skin. This will only lead to…more pimples! And not to mention the nasty scar that popping a pimple can leave behind. We know it can be tempting, but resist the urge to pop those pimples!
