Most skincare experts strongly discourage popping your pimples because you run the risk of a worse breakout or an infection.2

However, I still pop mine from time to time and I bet I’m not the only one.

If you’re going to pop those zits, make sure you are doing it as safely as possible so that you can get rid of the blemish without making things worse.

Here’s a guide to what you need to do after popping that pimple.

Good luck!

1. Place a Warm Cloth on the Area

Once that zit is popped, press a warm washcloth to the area for a few minutes.

This helps soothe the area and soften the skin around the blemish.

Ideally, you should have done this before you popped, but you can still go ahead with it after.

Popping a pimple is sort of painful, so this step also alleviates some of the discomfort.
