How To Squeeze A Spot Without Damaging Your Skin

EVER wondered how to best pop a spot? No. You don’t just shave them off as former Anorak writer used to.



The corect technique is now demonstrated by Dr Mehmet Oz, on the Oprah Winfrey show.

You should not pinch the zit. You should fetch a pin, clean it with booze and skewer the thing.




“Never squeeze a pimple because you will macerate it. You’re destroying all the healthy tissue with the pressure you are putting on there by squeezing. Place the needle parallel to the skin – rather like you would skewer something – and pierce the skin from one side to another. Then rip up!”

Acne sufferers swear by it:

"Thank you, Doctor! Everyone used to stare at my zits but now they're too scared to look."

“Thank you, Doctor! Everyone used to stare at my zits but now they’re too scared to look.”
