How to Pop A Pimple Properly, Even Though You Really Shouldn’t: However, before resorting to popping, the best thing you can do to take care of your skin each day is to properly clean your face, use toner, exfoliate, use masks, moisturize and protect yourself from the sun. According to Danuta Mieloch, aesthetician and owner of Rescue Spa, in the evening, you should make sure to remove all the buildup of sunscreen, makeup, pollution, and so on. When someone has pimples, their skin typically has a layer of buildup that needs to come off. But once the skin is softened and the buildup is removed the congestion, blackheads, and acne should start to disappear.
