Don't Pick At Your Face! Do This Instead.
There is one thing we can all agree on - pimples are a pain! Waking up and finding a huge imperfection right in the center of our forehead is NOT a good start to our day. Most of us are guilty of touching and picking at our imperfections, but STOP NOW. By picking at your face, you are only making the problem worse.
Here are few reasons why we shouldn't pick at those pesky pimples:
Popping pimples improperly can lead to scarring.
By poking and popping those pimples, we are actually only making the appearance worse and can even cause scabbing. The only thing more difficult to cover than a pimple is a nasty scab!
Regardless if you use tools or just your hands, by picking at your face, you are opening up a wound and this can lead to infections.
Instead of picking at your face, here are a few tips on how to keep your face clear:
Take off your makeup with a gentle face wipe, then follow up with actually washing your face. This will ensure you have no makeup residue left to clog your pores.
Drinking lots of water and maintaining a healthy diet have shown to improve skin conditions.
