What to do, depending on the blemish:
Don’t squeeze! Instead, apply a hot compress — the heat can break down the sebum under the surface, which will bring down the inflammation. Finish with a spot treatment.
We repeat, don’t squeeze! Instead, pull the skin tight on either side to stretch the blemish. The whitehead underneath will force a tiny little tear in your skin to release the impurity.
Use cotton pads soaked in moisturizing toner. (Tissues tend to dry out skin.) Put the cotton pads on your index fingers and push down and around the pimple to squeeze out the oil under the surface.
