Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - LOOKBOOK -

As tempt­ing as it may be, noth­ing good ever comes from pick­ing or pop­ping pim­ples. More of­ten than not, you’ll make the prob­lem worse by push­ing bac­te­ria deeper into the skin and spread­ing the in­fec­tion or caus­ing a trauma, which re­sults in a scar. In­stead, ap­ply a quick­heal so­lu­tion with an­tibac­te­rial prop­er­ties, like sal­i­cylic acid or tea tree oil. If you have the habit of touch­ing your face, a pim­ple patch would form a pro­tec­tive bar­rier, plus it will help soak up ex­cess se­bum and pro­mote heal­ing as well.

• The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, $19.90 (10 ml).

• Medicube Red Spot So­lu­tion Nee­dle Patch, $13 (10 pieces).
