In July this year I was invited to Jakarta X Beauty, a 3 day beauty event run by Female Daily Network. In 2019, there were talks from over 80 speakers! I did two: one on hyperpigmentation with Kae (@kaepratiwi), and one on acne with Dr Arini Astasari Widodo (@dermatologistjakarta).
One of the things Dr Arini and I discussed in our talk was how to squeeze a pimple properly – or by properly, we mean with the least amount of damage. Officially, you shouldn’t squeeze pimples, but we aren’t all blessed with perfect self-control, so here’s some harm minimisation information.
Check out the video on YouTube here.
Do you have any other tips for squeezing pimples? Let me know in the comments!

I never heard about lancetting the pimple horizontally before, that is a great tip.
Looks like a great event! This is great information for teens – when I was a teen, I wasn’t aware of the damage that could be done from squeezing and poking pimples and blackheads AND with unwashed hands! Of course I was told not to squeeze them but it’s difficult to resist! Avoiding further infection by pricking at an angle is a great tip – thanks
