Adding an extra step of gently pricking the spot/pimple with a disinfected needle before squeezing gets rid of acne (especially spots which are white and which have puss in) and reduces scarring

What You'll Need

  • Flame, needle
  • Antiseptic cream

What You'll Do

  • Light a match, quickly run the pointy end of a safety pin through the flame to disinfect. Gently prick the pimple to create a little opening,
  • Squeeze out the undesirables. Apply some antiseptic cream to make sure the pimple doesn't get infected

Tips & Warnings

  • Be gentle when handling flames and pricking the pimple so that you don't hurt yourself. MAKE SURE YOU DISINFECT NEEDLE BEFORE PRICKING!!!
