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.
