Popping Pimples ? Is it worth it?

Everyone, it seems, has a different opinion on popping pimples, and for every magazine article you find that urges you to keep your hands away, you'll find another that says it's no big deal. And when you have a huge quivering mass on your nose that seems as though it's threatening to take over your whole face, popping that pimple can seem like the best way to get rid of the thing. Anyone who has ever suffered with acne can tell you that popping pimples is one of the perverse pleasures associated with the condition, and can become almost addictive. But beware ? popping is not always the best way to get rid of pimples overnight, and can in fact make the whole thing a lot uglier.

How to get rid of pimples has been an issue that has plagued acne sufferers since time immemorial, but there is unfortunately very little that will successfully get rid of pimples overnight. While pimple popping might seem like the answer, it is something that should only be used on a zit-by-zit basis. There is little doubt that releasing the goo from a protruding white head can be extremely satisfying ? but pimple popping should be reserved for this type of zit alone. Though the red cyst-like pimples that linger just beneath your skin can hurt like anything and can induce you to prod them with a needle or other pointed instrument in some attempt to get rid of the thing, trying to pop this type of pimple simply won't work, and ? the last thing that any acne sufferer wants ? might actually prolong the life of the pimple.

You can take the edge off those big white-headed guys and get rid of that kind of pimple overnight if you pop with care. Always wash your hands thoroughly before you begin. Puncture the head lightly with a sanitized needle (you should clean it by wiping it with alcohol, or by passing it through a flame) and wipe away the pus that comes out. Never, ever, force the issue ? squeezing will only send the goo you can't see further into your skin, which will leave you with one of those painful zits that takes forever to go away. And while popping pimples is fun, it's not worth that, is it?
