Get Rid Of That Pimple Stat!

Updated on March 4, 2015

What is Acne?

First I will start off with explaining in plain english what exactly whiteheads and blackheads are.

A whitehead is when bacteria and sebum are trapped beneath the skins surface. For reasons unknown it's a pain to get rid of. Whiteheads appear as white bumps that form on your skin with what looks to be a puss-like substance that comes from within if you pop one.

A blackhead is similar to that of a white head except that the trapped sebum and bacteria are partially exposed to the surface of the skin. *The black coloring is due to what is known as Melanin. This is your skins natural pigment. When you are out in the sun Melanin is what turns your skin darker to protect you. So, no, it is not dirt that is in your pores that is causing this, which means you cannot just wash it away. These can last much longer than a whitehead.

So have you ever gotten one of those pesky whiteheads, or even blackheads before a date? Then you squeeze it and try to get rid of it before you have to see your date only to have a huge red mark left on your face of proof that you had a pimple? OK, well I have a pretty good solution to that.

STEP 1 - Wash your face gently. (I will explain later)

STEP 2 - Find a very small needle. (I realize your scared at this point but bear with me)

STEP 3 - Clean the needle extremely well. Use rubbing alcohol and make sure your soak it for a few minutes.

Step 4 - Give that blackhead or whitehead a good staredown and try to find the very center of it. Now take your needle and press the point very gently into the center of the comedone (blackhead/whitehead.) This should not hurt because you should only stab the very top layer of skin.

Step 5 - Are your hands clean? (good) ok, now gently!!!! squeeze the fluid from the comedone.

Step 6 - Wipe it away with a tissue. If you have some sort of acne medicine you like to use now would be a good time to use it.

Step 7- Ta-Da, if done correctly you should have no big red mark on your face! Congratulations!
