Liquid Love To Heal Popped Pimples

We know we're not supposed to pop our pimples, but there are times when we just can't help it. Needless to say, we're often left with what amounts to a gaping, bleeding wound that is not only impossible to cover with makeup, but can remain for years (if not a lifetime) in the form of a scar.

So if you happen to be the picking type and you just can't stop, there's an easy way to cover up your mess and hopefully stop a scar from forming. It starts with a quick run to your local drugstore, but instead of choosing one of the hundreds of acne creams, we recommend buying Band-Aid Liquid Bandage ($10).

How does it work? It's essentially an antiseptic that fills in the wound and seals it, allowing for a smoother surface for your cover-up and protection from bacteria. Since it minimizes healing time (and keeps your fingers off the area), it makes it's a great over-the-counter popped pimple fix. Keep a tube of the stuff in your cabinet in case those moments strike. You can cover it up and act like nothing ever happened. Our secret.
