You know what, I know exactly what you mean...question.. do you pop your pimples? Although I used to religously do this...when visited a spa, the owner told me not to bust them. I was puzzled, I asked her again, when do you bust them...she repeated, you do not under any circumstances bust them. She pointed me to this pimple stuff called Moss Extract blemish remover by a company named Naturopathica. It costs 38 dollars, and it works fast. It some pasty stuff that dries up the pimple so that you just peel the blemish (pimple) off within 2 days. You do not have to bust it to get the nasty stuff out. It automatically dries up. Leaves no bumps.
After hearing it, I didn't believe it, I looked at her face, and sure nuf, she didn't have any dark spots, evidence of pimples, and wasn't wearing any makeup. So, I bought it. I've gotten about 3-4 pimples in about weeks time, I used it and it cleared up in 2-3 days. In the meantime, I would put makeup over it until it drys up and can be peeled off.
If you want quick results costs just buy it. You only use a tad bit, so I'm sure this little jar will last me a year. My face is worth it. After trying everything under the sun, I'm no longer by fooled by cheap remedies.
