This is not for the squeamish! Dr Oz has given us a step-by-step on how to properly pop a pimple… and we are pretty sure 98% of us have been doing it wrong before now!

While there have  always been a number of wives tales about how to best pop a pimple, we now have it on medical advice that this is the most effective way to do it. 

Using a pin that is parallel to your skin, pierce the white head of the pimple through to the other side and then pull up – effectively removing the pus from the pimple without damaging your skin underneath. 

But don’t take our word for it! Watch the video below for Dr Oz to explain… But warning, even on an over-sized dummy model the pimple popping practice can still make you feel a little queazy!
