How to use a pimple popper

A pimple popper is the easiest and most hygienic way to pop pimples, and if you are wondering how to use a pimple popper you can find out all about it here.

Pimple poppers, sometimes also called comedone extractors, are specialised and professional tools for popping blackheads and whiteheads. The small hoop on the end fits over the spot when gentle pressure is applied the spot is squeezed out. It’s what professional dermatologists and beauticians use to treat patients; it is more hygienic, reduces the risk of infection, and reduces swelling and redness.

Our pimple popper comes with two different sized pimple popping loops on either end of a strong stainless steel handle. That way you can match the size and shape of the spot. Blackheads tend to be smaller and need the smaller end, whiteheads tend to be larger and need the larger end.

How to use a pimple popper

To use a pimple popper first clean the area, ideally with warm water. Cleaning will get rid of some of the excess dirt, oil and bacteria on the skin that might get into the wound. And the warm water will soften the spot, loosen it up, and soften up the skin around it.

Clean the pimple popper in warm soapy water too, to make sure there is no dirt or bacteria on it. Then place the appropriate sized loop over the spot and press down gently but firmly. This will pop the spot and you can clear the extracted fluid or oil with a tissue. After popping you can clean your face again. Alternatively, splash cold water which will shrink the pores and refresh the skin.

Now you know how to use a pimple popper so you can keep your spots under control in the most hygienic way without redness, swelling and irritation.
