This week’s guide: a hard look at big fat zits.

We’ll say it: popping a pimple is almost always a bad idea. Sure, it feels good — for a second. The aftermath is usually worse. This guide will teach you about types of pimples and how to get rid of pimples without popping them — and if you do give in, how to treat popped pimples the proper way. Learn about:

  • Why you really shouldn’t pop it!

  • How to get rid of a pimple without a sharp tool

  • Different pimple types

  • …and more!

Big zits can be a touchy topic (pun intended) — but read the full guide to learn how to handle them the right way.

Love,
