First of all, and you probably know this, you shouldn’t squeeze acne, spots, or pimples. Let’s face it, you’re going to do it anyway right? If you must there’s a way to do it safely.
Thoroughly clean your face and then apply a wet, warm facecloth over your entire face for around 10 minutes. Next, pat your face and hands dry with a soft, clean towel, try not to rub with the towel as this can spread infection. Next, cover your fingers with dry tissue and apply gentle, even pressure to the sides of the blemish. Gently press downward first and then upwards, toward the pimple or spot. Try it once or twice and then leave it. If it’s not ready, forcing the issue will only make matters worse and might even lead to scarring. If the blemish does squeeze out, remove the head and oil with the tissue to avoid spreading bacteria. Finally, immediately apply a treatment product.
