    I should send you a picture of my pock-marked face to stop you. Scars can happen so easily on the face, even from the one's you don't squeeze. I can tell you that I got scars only on the pimples that were very dense and required pinching so hard that I damaged the tissue (but were so painful that I had to empty them). I've never gotten a scar on a whitehead where I just gently opened the top layer of the pimple, only from ones where I pinched from the bottom or surrounding area, as if to burst it open.

  • Try hanging your head over a steam bath; get a tissue and GENTLY squeeze; when you've finished apply cold water (will close pores). The problem with alcohol is that it's too harsh and can burn sensitive skin. Try never to do this when you are pre-menstrual - sometimes it happens just because you are hormonal; another good reason never to wax/shave your legs at this time. A good non-oily moisturiser can only help afterwards.

    It depends on how you popped it, using your fingers is the worst thing you could do, and if you did, yes it would leave a dark spot,

    Apple cider vinegar works good, the acid in the vinegar kills all the microorganisims and will go down and dry up quickly, antibiotic cream is good after but when its all healed up it will leave a mark, mix a little bleaching powder for skin, and use on your dark spots after it has healed up.
