Popping Your Zits
There is nothing more frustrating that walking around with a blemish on your face, but popping it is not the solution. "Picking at your face often leads to depressed scars, skin infections, and sometimes broken blood vessels," warns Jailman.
Instead of popping, use an OTC benzyl peroxide or salicylic acid treatment (we love Bliss No Zit Sherlock Complete Acne System, $32, sephora.com). If you absolutely must pop, Jailman says to use a warm cotton swab or compress on your face to bring the puss up to the surface and squeeze gently.
