As long as you have the right tool, the process of popping a pimple is very simple and painless. But it is essential to have a stainless steel Pimple Popper, which you can sterilise, rather than using your fingers or fingernails, which you can’t.
Sterilising the pimple popper is the first step. You can do this with surgical spirit or disinfectant, but boiling it in a pan of water for ten minutes is even better.
Next, wash your hands and face with clean soap and warm water. Medicated soap is good if possible.
Choose the pimples to be popped, making sure they have a white head or black head. Other pimples or solid lumps cannot be popped.
Use the loop on the pimple popper to gently exert pressure, applying just enough to force the contents of the pimple out. Ensure that all the contents have been removed, otherwise the pimple may grow back.
Clean the pimple area with clean cotton wool and antiseptic such as Dettol or iodine solution. This is important, both to the stop the pimple returning, and to prevent fresh infection on your skin.
Finally, apply some antiseptic ointment, or antibiotic cream if you have it, to keep the wound clear of germs while it is healing. And ensure you keep your face clean while the healing process is taking place.
