Why Popping Pimples Is Always a Bad Strategy

Acne is among the most common—and most frustrating—types of skin diseases. If your skin tends to break out frequently, talk to a dermatologist about professional-grade prevention and acne treatment. Your dermatologist can also extract your pimples safely. It’s not a good idea to try to pop your pimples at home, and you’ll learn why when you watch this video.

This video explains how pimples form and why they sometimes hurt. Since popping a pimple spreads the infected material around your skin, it’s likely to lead to additional zits. Popping a pimple also increases the risk of acne scarring and skin discoloration.
