Acne is an issue that most people have had to deal with at least one time in their lives.

Somehow, this issue likes to pop up whenever we want to look at our finest. Here is an excellent way to deal with your zit-ssue without leaving a scar.

Normally, You Shouldn’t Even Touch It

You really should just leave it alone. But you won’t and we know you won’t. You’re going to pick at it and leave an enormous scar, so help is here.

Start Where Most Facials Start

Wash your hands before you wash your face. Think about all the bacteria on your hands and what they could do to your face when you’re trying to fix a problem like acne.

Get A Candle And A Needle

You will need to pop the pimple with a needle. Pass the needle through the fire of a candle or lighter to make sure it is sanitized.

Clean Your Zit With An Alcohol Swab

You need to do this before any popping happens. Before breaking the skin, you have to deal with the bacteria on the surface so they don’t make their way into the party while you’re attempting to clean up.

Downward, Not Inward

The time has come to get everything out. Place your index finger on each side of your new friend, but don’t press. Instead, push down with even force to avoid breaking more skin.

When you’re confident that you’ve gotten most of what you want out of your pimple, take a clean cotton ball and thoroughly remove your pimple’s innards. You have successfully slain your biggest first world problem.

Spot Treatment Seals The Deal

Wash off your face after your spot treatment. Maybe use a facecloth; the standard, popular “satisfying water splash” this woman is doing makes a large mess.
