We recommend allowing your pimple to naturally go away, without forced extraction, in order to avoid causing any damage/scarring to your skin. However, if you feel that a pimple of yours needs to be popped, wash your hands well with warm, soapy water, and using your hands only (no tools!) and gentle pressure, press on the area around the pimple to see if its pops. Do not try to pop a pimple prematurely, as it will cause the pus, bacteria, and dead skin cells within your pimple to migrate further into your skin.
