How a Man deals with Pimples ?

Due to high testosterone and the pubertal testosterone surge most guys get “pimply”. For some it is a occasional affair but for many it lasts many years even after teenage.

We all have experienced and  witnessed  the moment where these zits or acne pay a showcase visit to your face night before an important date , meeting or occasion, creating a havoc in the mind about how to get rid of it that instant.

Now, the first thing that comes to your mind is to pop them and show them who’s the boss, but believe it, that is not a DIY you would like to practice at home. As easy or time saving as popping a pimple sounds, one should never do it as it can give you more reasons to cancel that date.

Wondering what worse could really happen? Let us make you aware of it.

  1. Unlike experts, we cannot identify when a pimple is ready to be popped, squeezing it at the wrong stage can damage the skin around and leave discoloured marks at the particular area. 

  2. These pus containing pimples, if popped abruptly can lead to bacterial infection as doing so can push the bacterial waste further into your skin and also the blood stream. 

  3. Popping these pimples can lead the bacterial fluid further around the face and can cause more acne to show up and completely make the situation worse.

Popping a pimple isn’t the only solution to your acne problem, there are many correct ways to get rid of one before the big moment :-

  1. You can attempt a zit spot treatment like tea tree oil, turmeric, aloe vera gel or crushed ibuprofen to make it vanish.

  2. Other than this, you can treat it with a pack which dies down the enlarging, pain and redness of the zit and surprisingly dry it out to settle down and heal quicker, take an ice cube in a piece of cloth and press it delicately on the pimple to make it less visible and helping the skin to recover faster.

  3. One can also use various organic face masks and healing scrubs or can simply consult an expert to make sure these little party crashers are gone from your face before a big day.

Instead of popping matter from your own hands, one could take in practice these various natural home remedies while keeping a note about your allergies beforehand.

  1. Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil is a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which means that it can kill the bacteria that causes acne.Tea tree oil’s anti-inflammatory properties mean that it can also reduce the swelling and redness of pimples.

  2. Jojoba oil: The substances in jojoba oil may help to repair damaged skin, which means it may also help speed up wound healing, including acne marks. Some of the compounds in jojoba oil may reduce redness and swelling around pimples, whiteheads, and other inflamed lesions.
