What is the best way to remove a pimple without leaving a mark ?

Report as

You definitely dont want to pick at it because that only makes it worse. The best thing to do is use a skin cream and keep you skin as clean as possible. Unfortunately pimples are a part of life and just like buses.....they come and go.

Scrub the area roughly with a washcloth, ideally as it's just forming. If it's already formed will still be better than popping it. Then it will just dry up and go away.

The best thing to do is put Witch Hazel or anything else that will dry it up on it. Then eventually it will just go away.

I wash my face twice a day w/ face soap. Also, you shouldn't touch or pick at it. I'm trying out proactiv but I used to use a prescription

I am 37 and I still get zits sometimes. I have always popped them and have absolutly no scars at all from the ones I popped. I have a couple of reminders from the ones I just let sit there. Those ones can leave a mark.

U can use the blackhead removal tap and make sure to put a hot compress first that will pull the core out, hope that helps

Let toothpaste sit on it overnight and dry it up, then apply vaseline or aquaphor and ever so slighty exfoliate. Happy popping!

Use mild soap like cerave wash with warm water to open and clean the pores and then cold water to close them up. Do not be extreme with the temps just use what u can easily tolerate.

Try a spot treatment for those terrible, painful pimples that r really swollen. They sell spot treatments at ur neighborhood drugstore for a fair price. Just put it on in the morning when u wake up, and at night before u go to bed. Before u know it, no more pimple(s)!

A paste made with salicylic and water works really good. Salicylic is just plain aspirin like Bayer. Crush the pill, make a paste with water. Apply to clean dry area. Toothpaste works good also. Keep your skin clean and exfoliate. I used to buy corn meal, wet my face, put a little water in it and gently rub it on your face to exfoliate the dead skin off. I never found a better or cheaper skin product. Apply a non greasy moisturizer, St Ives used to make a moisturizing gel, that was good to use.

Not to do it yourself. Leave it alone, or go to a Dermatologist.
