5 Steps for Safe Squeezing

So you wake up in the morning and you’re blessed with your new bestie, Fred the pimple. Now how do we attend to Fred? Pop it? Pick at it? The best way is to let your professional Beauty Therapist deal with it. However, that is not always possible so here are the essential steps to safely pop your pimple.

Firstly make sure you wash your hands. This is something that needs to be done with very clean hands!

Step 1: Cleanse your face

Step 2: Run your hot tap to get the temperature up.

Step 3: Gently Squeeze.  If it doesn’t pop, it is not ready.  If excessive force is required, don’t do it.  You will damage the skin around the pimple.  (If it is just not ready, applying a dab of the QED 5 – Minute Facial Clay Mask, Detox + Clarify which is designed to have powerful anti-inflammatory effects, so will just speed up the healing)

STEP 4: Quickly wipe away any goo that comes out (goo is the technical term for a mixture of dead white cells, dirt, bacteria perhaps a little blood)

STEP 5: Immediately press on the area with a clean cotton round soaked in HOT water.  You should feel a little zing.

Now leave it alone to heal, NO MORE TOUCHING!
