scary things that can happen when you pop your own pimples

Your skin might develop pitting.

Popping pimples can have long-term effects on your complexion, including depressed scars known as “pits.””Every time your skin is damaged there’s a possibility that, as the skin heals, tissue will be lost. That’s how you get depressed or pitted acne scars. The greater the damage done to the skin, the greater the chance of tissue loss,” esthetician Angela Palmer told Verywell Health.
