Easy Ways to Cure Acne Naturally

Don't Pop That Pimple 1 of 9

Acne is one of those problems that just never seems to completely go away. While most adults don't suffer from severe cases of acne, all it takes is one pimple in the middle of your forehead to ruin your day. While most people resort to scrubbing their body with harsh chemicals, there are natural solutions to this problem that work even better.

First off, as tempting as it is, don't pop your pimples. By scratching or squeezing your zits, your body actually reacts by producing more of the chemical that causes acne in the first place. In addition, popped pimples are likely to become infected and may create even more breakouts. If you feel that you must pop a particularly bad zit, make sure to follow these steps:

  • Wash your hands.
  • Clean the skin around the zit.
  • Sanitize a needle by holding the end in a flame for 10-15 seconds.
  • Puncture the side of the pimple with the needle after it cools.
  • Use two fingers and pull them outwards from the zit.
  • Blot the area with antiseptic after you're done.
