Don’t Touch It

While most people are itching to get rid of their red and obnoxiously puffy new pimple, the first rule is to never touch it! Let the pimple run it’s course and disappear on its own…and yes we know that’s easier said than done.

Ready To Pop

Different skin types will obviously have pimples that appear differently. On fair skin, they look like this, and if the zit is in the middle of your forehead 36 hours before prom, you want it gone at any cost. This solution will cost you practically nothing.

Wash Up

Wash your hands and then wash your face. Think about all the germs on your hands and what they could do to your face when you’re attempting to fix a problem like acne.

Get A Candle And A Needle

You will need to pop the thing with a needle. Pass the needle through the flame of a candle or lighter to make sure it is sanitized. Torch those germs! Also, calm down; you’re old enough to deal with needles. We believe in you.

The Popping

Place the needle parallel to your skin and stab your zit gently. Don’t go in from the top because there is no telling how deep or shallow it may be. Bleeding is not a great sign, so keep things parallel rather than perpendicular. Nothing you’re doing here should hurt. If it does, you’re doing it wrong.

Clean Up

Once empty, clean up the battleground that once was your massive bump! Cotton balls and rubbing alcohol or medication will do the trick.
