Pimples are formed because they body is trying to push out infections. However, squeezing pimples actually causes more harm than good by destroying the tissue and causing inflammation. Don’t squeeze! Instead, clean a needle with heat or alcohol. Lance the pimple with the sterilized needle; while staying parallel to the skin pierce the raised white part of the blemish and pull up. You can then gently squeeze out the pus without causing more damage to your skin.
