i don't pop them, i have before a while ago and they've left marks that last longer than if i would've just left the pimple alone or put cream on them. it sucked! haha. but my boyfriend pops his, and mine!! it's sick, hahaha. and it hurts.

It's so hard not to! I totally understand! It's best to avoid it though because it can leave scars - I know. I have a few. :( I read recently that you should gently pull the skin away from the spot rather than squeezing, because it breaks the root and it will heal more quickly. I also put a dab of toothpaste on the spot because it dries it out a lot more quickly. It's really good.

Tea tree oil is such a great product. I need to buy a bottle soon, I have been out of it for quite a while. I know exactly how you feel because when you think about it which is more gross? Popping the pimples, or walking around knowing that you have a bunch of gross stuff in your pores? I think the second thing is grosser. One time, when I was in highschool, there was this gilr that didn't pop her pimples and she had one that got so big it popped on its own one day while I was walking to her and I almost puked in her face. (I didn't say anything though bvcause that would be mean.)
