Keep your hands away from your pimples ...



Do not aggravate your acne! Squeezing or picking at your pimples can cause the inflammation to spread over a larger area. Squeezing a pimple won't necessarily get rid of the problem. In fact, it can actually force the bacteria and pus deeper into the skin, which can worsen the infection and result in more swelling and redness. Squeezing can also lead to scabs, which can leave you with permanent scars.

You can help your pimple heal faster by applying an over-the-counter anti-acne gel or cream containing benzoyl peroxide. Hard as it may be, try to keep your hands away from your pimples and let nature take its course. If your skin is prone to acne, look for makeup and skin care products with the word "non-comedogenic" listed on the packaging.
