We’ve all been told countless times not to keep touching our skin, especially if we have breakouts. You’ll transfer a bunch of nasty germs onto your face that will likely get stuck in your pores or cause more breakouts.

But it still comes as a surprise that Dr Sandra Lee, AKA Dr Pimple Popper also advises that you leave your skin alone as much as possible. After all, she makes a living out of popping pimples.

“You’ve probably heard dermatologists say this, but I don’t recommend that you pop your own pimples,” Dr Lee told Metro US.

However, she concedes that most people do it anyway, and so she wants to share her tips on how to do it safely.

1. Only pop when its ready

Dr Lee recommends only popping a pimple that has already formed a white or yellow head. She says that this will reduce scarring – and from experience we know that it can also reduce pain.

2. Clean your hands

For goodness sake, why is this step always falling by the wayside? Dr Lee seriously recommends that you must sterilise the area and your hands/tool before trying to exorcise your third head.

3. Have a steamy shower

No, not steamy in a sexual way. We mean cranking up the temperature and turning your shower room into a mini sauna. The reason for this is that heat will help to open your pores and make the pimple pop much easier. Or, you could place your head over a bowl or boiling water and under a tea towel. Cue: DIY steam chamber.

4. Your tool is everything

While Dr Lee recommends using her very own ‘Dr Pimple Popper Comedone Extractor’ (how professional) she admits that using your hands can also work if you know how to do it.

“If using fingers, increase traction by wrapping clean tissue paper around the fingers and applying pressure,” she told Metro US.

5. Let it be

This is easier said than done – but a friendly reminder. If your pimple is just not keen, 0/10, unwilling to pop don’t just keep going at it anyway. You don’t want to risk infection and scarring if you keep trying when it just won’t budge.

6. Topical creams to sanitise

After popping your zit it’s all about applying a pimple cream. Dr Lee recommends a corticosteroid, antibiotic ointment, or one that contains benzoyl peroxide to help dry out the spot.
