Tech Insider came out with a video today addressing the evils of pimple popping and though it has made some good points -- are they entirely correct?
Tech Insider starts with a perfect diagram of what acne actually is and how it is formed -- “bulging bags of oil and bacteria under the skin with nowhere to go… Oil moves from the glands up the hair and onto the skin to lubricate the skin and hair… but sometimes dead skin cells get into the pores and clog them up. The oil builds up around the glands like an expanding water balloon which pushes against the surface cause swelling, redness and pain.” All this is true and beautifully diagramed in the video.
Dr. Michelle Rodrigues from St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne is quoted -- “Squeezing it can result in these contents being pushed into surrounding skin, making the problem worse.” That is largely true, though it is assuming all someone did was have a pimple, pop it, and leave it there on the skin. Sadly, that's what many people do. Is there any way around getting the bacteria to spread? Is there any benefit to popping the pimple?
Though I recommend not popping -- as it is easier to just spot treat the pimples with AcneLXR -- an argument can be made for popping the occasional “emergency pimple” before a big date or a job interview etc. If you were to do this, how would you stop the spread of bacteria? Use an antibacterial. My personal favorites being potassium iodide, SSKI, hydrogen peroxide, and worst case, hand soap. Putting one of these substances on your skin will stop the spread of bacteria and infection and even kill the bacteria below the surface of the skin. However, Dr. Rodrigues points out that it can cause “temporary darkening of the skin in that area.” If you squeeze too hard, it can lead to scarring. Nobody wants that, so be very careful.
Whether you pop the pimple or treat it whole, you will want to put AcneLXR on it. AcneLXR is the strongest, fastest working, and most natural acne medication that exists. Spot treat the pimple or the post-pop pimple with AcneLXR to supply the nutrients the skin needs to heal.
According the National Institute of Health, acne is the most common skin disease. Approximately 80% of people aged 11-30 suffer from the occasional acne outbreak. So, what’s the best way to beat blemishes? Tech Insider concludes: “Patience. Pimples will usually resolve in less than a week or so.” And that has been shown to reduce as much as twice that fast with AcneLXR’s Day and Night Serums from acnelxr.com.
