The truth behind pimple popping

Have you ever wondered how to get rid of a pimple overnight? Popping them is definitely not the answer.

Yes, we have all been there. Standing in front of the mirror, attacking our face to see what oozes out from beneath. Some people consider it ‘gross’, but for many, pimple popping is satisfying. However, fighting the urge to pop a pimple is important.

A pimple is made up of bacteria, white blood cells, dead skin cells and sebum. This occurs when these four ingredients become trapped in the hair follicle, causing irritation and inflammation on the surface of the skin.

When we try to pop a pimple, it opens a gateway for bacteria from our fingers and hands. This will prolong the healing of an already infected pore and potentially cause depressed scarring.

So, the next time you look in the mirror and have the urge to squeeze, try to think of the effects it will have on your skin! Instead, try applying a spot treatment over the top, to avoid picking and touching them. Organic Rituals No Filter spot serum is perfect for this! #edenspas
