Thou Shalt LEAVE SPOTS ALONE
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.
