We all have a popaholic or (many) in our lives — in some cases, it's us! Turn that love for popping pimples into safe, healthy skincare habits. While Dr. Pimple Popper recommends not popping pimples, she’s a realist: this toolkit will help you safely treat and pop pimples as they come up. Use the Dr. Pimple Popper Comedone Extractor to get rid of blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed pimples when they’ve come to a head. Treat pimples that aren’t ready to pop, and stop bacteria from spreading, with BP Spot Treatment.
BP Spot Treatment:
Apply a thin layer of BP Spot Treatment to problem areas or pimples up to 3 times daily.
When pimple comes to a head, clean the skin and disinfect the Comedone Extractor. Place the preferred loop over the pimple and apply slow, gentle pressure to extract. If pimple is not extracting, don’t persist and stop immediately. Once a pimple has been popped, keep the area clean and let it heal properly to avoid scarring. Apply a cold clean washcloth against the area and use a disinfectant to keep the area clean.
Benzoyl Peroxide — Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory that kills acne-causing bacteria and brings relief to the pain, redness, and swelling associated with acne.
Allantoin — Naturally derived conditioner that helps to soften and soothe skin, this ingredient helps to offset other powerful ingredients that can sometimes cause drying or irritation.
Vitamin E — One of the most potent antioxidants known for moisturizing and preventing damage to the skin, caused by free radicals and environmental toxins, like UVA/UVB rays.
