i am not the type who gets those huge red pimples (thank god!) but i do get some small blocked pores at times and i just get soooo tempted to burst them. i just enjoy the pleasure of cleaning it up. and i dont have the patience to see it change colours. i would rather get done with it as soon as i can. i dont care for the scars as they do go away. do u do it too...do u burst pimples?

I do not get those red ugly red pimples either, but I do get blackheads, and small pimples sometimes not as many as when I was younger though, I do like to get rid of them so I am inclined to break them I went to a specialist one time about them when I was young and the specialist told me to break them and then to clean my face.

I only had a couple of them when i was a teenager. But my mother adviced me not to burst them because i could get more if it spread to the surrounding areas. And moreover we could develop marks on the face which is not very good.

I do- I know it's bad for my skin but I can't help it! It really irritates me to see blocked pores/pimples and I have to get rid of it!

Yes, I've been known to do this too. It's a really bad habit and may lead to long time scars. It's hard to wait a week or two for an annoying pimple to go away!
