How to Pop White Heads
There are several types of acne from which you may suffer. One of the most noticeable forms of acne is the whitehead. Whiteheads are clogged pores that are covered by a layer of skin. The layer of skin fills up with white blood cells, which gives the pimple the white hue. When you see these types of pimples grow, you may want to pop them to clear up your skin. When you pop them, you need to take steps to be safe and clean.
Clean your face and hands with soap and warm water. This will sterilize your skin and get it ready to be operated on.
Pass the tip of a needle over an open flame from a lighter. This will sterilize the needle and get it ready to enter your skin. Wipe the needle down with a cotton ball doused in rubbing alcohol.
Wipe the whitehead and the surrounding skin with rubbing alcohol from another cotton ball to clear away any excess bacteria.
Press the needle parallel to your skin next to the whitehead. Press the tip of the needle through the whitehead. Remove the needle.
Press down on the whitehead and the area around it with even pressure to even out the skin. Clean the area with one more cotton ball doused with rubbing alcohol.
Apply a layer of acne spot treatment to the area. This will provide a layer of protection for your skin as the whitehead heals.
