Popping Pimples – Is it worth it? Written by Peter Crump
Everyone, it seems, has a different opinion on popping pimples, and for every magazine article you find that urges you to keep your hands away, you’ll find another that says it’s no big deal. And when you have a huge quivering mass on your nose that seems as though it’s threatening to take over your whole face, popping that pimple can seem like best way to get rid of thing. Anyone who has ever suffered with acne can tell you that popping pimples is one of perverse pleasures associated with condition, and can become almost addictive. But beware – popping is not always best way to get rid of pimples overnight, and can in fact make whole thing a lot uglier.
How to get rid of pimples has been an issue that has plagued acne sufferers since time immemorial, but there is unfortunately very little that will successfully get rid of pimples overnight. While pimple popping might seem like answer, it is something that should only be used on a zit-by-zit basis. There is little doubt that releasing goo from a protruding white head can be extremely satisfying – but pimple popping should be reserved for this type of zit alone. Though red cyst-like pimples that linger just beneath your skin can hurt like anything and can induce you to prod them with a needle or other pointed instrument in some attempt to get rid of thing, trying to pop this type of pimple simply won’t work, and – last thing that any acne sufferer wants – might actually prolong life of pimple.
Acne Scars – Getting Rid of Bad Memories! Written by Peter Crump
Acne scars can often be final reminder of a bad time in life of a person’s skin. Though acne is one of most common skin disorders, most former patients feel no need to display their scars like war wounds from a hard won battle, and once sufferers have achieved clear skin they have longed for so long, they move swiftly into a new fight – how to remove, or at least lessen, their acne scars.
Just as there are different types of acne, there are also different types of acne scar. While painful cyst type acne usually leaves scarring of some kind, some former patients find themselves with minimal damage after suffering with this type of condition, while others who have had more superficial blemishes find that they scar badly. Scars are caused by both build-up of excess tissue and by loss of tissue due to acne, and type of treatment that is appropriate will vary from patient to patient. But medical advances have led to a number of new developments, which means that there is even an effective treatment for deep acne scars available.
