Sometimes it seems like the human body is an entirely separate entity from the mind altogether. It does things that were so not given the OK, like suddenly breaking out in various pimples at the most inconvenient time. During such acts of corporeal betrayal, there are those who fight back (and even delight in) by popping hordes of vicious zits; others leave them alone, letting them quietly retreat for the sake of their skin. What do you do?

Name a more satisfying feeling than having a huge, throbbing zit burst? Well, whatever answer you have is wrong because there is none. When a pulsating pound of pus is taking space on your face, the only option you have is to squeeze that sucker and show it whose boss. Just apply astringent and a little bit of toothpaste after and, voila, victory is yours!

And that whole “your skin will scar thing” isn’t really true, is it? Plenty of people have popped a pimple without looking like a pox victim. So pop away, brethren, pop away. 

“Don’t touch your face” is something that everyone’s mother has screamed at them at one point in their lives, the echoes of which have rattled through pubescent acne and straight into those oddball adulthood zits. And mom remains right on this one (as she does with a lot)—touching your face, including popping your own pimples, can severely damage your skin. Potential scarring aside (yes, that is a thing), you can actually make matters a whole lot worse and irritate your skin further, just like you irritated your mom by continuing to touch your skin when she said not to.

Also, the reason this article specifies “your own pimples” is because, apparently, there’s a portion of the population that enjoys popping other people’s pimples. We won’t get into it, but we do have one word for them—why?
