Why You Should Never Pop Pimples!

Pop Goes Your Complexion!


We’ve all had those mornings when we’ve woken up, felt that all-too familiar pain on our face, looked in the mirror, and thought to ourselves, here we go again. For many of us, the next step in fighting our acne is to reach for something sharp and get to work.




As a rule of thumb, it’s recommended that you don’t pop your pimples, especially on your own. This is because popping pimples often leads to acne scarring as a result of the disruption of your body’s own healing processes, which can lead to long-term skin problems worse than the pimple itself. (1)

But acne scarring isn't the only thing you need to worry about. As a matter of fact, there are many reasons why you shouldn’t pop your pimples, and thankfully, there IS a way to REMEDY your acne without having to turn to the dangerous action of popping your pimples yourself.

In this blog we talk about why you should never pop pimples, and the best ALL-NATURAL WAY to remedy your acne, prevent it in the first place, and achieve CLEARER SKIN TODAY!





Never worry about popping pimples again!



Though most people know popping pimples is bad, not everyone knows the exact reason why. And this reason really boils down to this simple truth: popping pimples only makes your skin problems worse. This is because popping pimples actually pushes pus and bacteria deeper into your skin, causing swelling and the reverse effect you’re looking for.

In the process of popping your pimples, you’re also inadvertently leaving yourself open to permanent scarring and marks that can appear as pits in your skin, which can cause you to feel both embarrassed and self-conscious with your appearance well after the pimple would've went away on its own. (2)

Not only can popping your pimples make your acne more noticeable, but it can also make your acne hurt. This is because of the subsequent inflammation that pushing all that bad stuff within your pimple further into your skin can cause. The bacteria on your hands can also cause you pain in the long term as a result of potential risks of infection. (3)


QUICK TIP: You won’t have to pop pimples if they don’t form in the first place. To prevent acne, wash your face twice a day with a GENTLE CLEANSER like GARNERS GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL FACE WASH! (4)


Another reason you shouldn’t pop pimples is because popping pimples can actually cause your acne to spread further across your face. This is because of the increased oil and bacteria that can wind up clogging your pores, causing you more acne in the area of the pimple you’ve initially popped.

In fact, even simply putting your fingers on your face can lead to the spread of dirt, oil, and bacteria, which can cause additional acne. The increased acne can also make you more susceptible to scarring, as popping pimples is the reason they don’t go away - basically, pimples are not permanent unless you make them permanent! (5)

Popping pimples can also cause your skin to become uneven as a result of the manual tearing of your skin. This is because your wound is being forced to heal, and can lead to a lackluster complexion and visible differences in your skin (along with scars), which will survive longer than your pimple would’ve if left to heal on its own. (6)

    Most pimples will remedy on their own in under a week. Popping them can actually cause your pimples to remain for weeks, or the long-term scarring we've discussed. This is why it’s so important to allow a pimple to run through what’s called its life span. This is because the pustule – which doesn’t sound all that great but is actually natural – is actually managing your bacteria and keeping it controlled!

    If you really don’t like your pimple, it’s recommended you cover it up with makeup rather than squeeze it. For this and for any other products you use, be sure that they are noncomedogenic, meaning they will not block your pores and make your acne worse. Remember, your goal when you’re applying makeup should be to reduce redness, not flatten your pimple. (7)

    Though some dermatologists can pop pimples in a way that is recommended, many people in today’s fast-paced environment like to pop pimples quickly while out on the go. The problem with this is that by applying pressure to the skin around your pimple, you’re actually damaging your skin, which is why it’s essential you touch different spots of your skin if you need to make contact, thus limiting the damage you cause. (8)


    QUICK TIP: Surprisingly, some pimples may not even be inflamed when you try to pop them. Prevent them all winter long by following GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL FIVE STEP FACIAL CARE SYSTEM! (9)


    You may be thinking all is lost if you can’t pop your pimple at home, but there are many ways you can get back to your most radiant self without ever needing to pop your pimple. And one thing you can do at home is ice your pimple, which will reduce the swelling of the damaged area of your skin without the potentially harmful effects of ice.

    Another thing you can do instead of popping your pimples is to get what’s called an acne facial, which is really just a facial for someone with skin that’s acne-prone. Doing this with an ALL-NATURAL FACE MASK can stop the bacteria that causes acne from spreading, while limiting the congestion of your surrounding pores. (10)

    Finally, it’s well-known that touching your fingers to your face can be dangerous, but it’s also important to ensure that your face is clean and any products or instruments you touch to your face are clean too. Being gentle is also essential, as many times when you're cleaning your face, you’re working with open wounds and skin that may exude pus or blood. (11)
