MYTH: If you pop a pimple, it will be less noticeable and go away faster.
TRUTH: Instead of speeding up the process of healing, popping pimples actually makes them stick around much longer! Popping a whitehead causes the bacteria inside to be pushed deeper into the skin, allowing more infection to grow.
After popping a pimple, the area will get redder and more inflamed - typically more noticeable than if you had left it alone in the first place. Popping pimples leads to scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, both of which last much longer than a pimple.
If you need to calm down a pimple right away, try covering an ice cube with a cloth or paper towel and gliding it gently over the affected area. Keep the ice moving and never hold it down on one spot of your skin.
Green beans are very healthy for your skin. They contain hyaluronic acid, which fights aging of the skin and hold onto water so the skin is moisturized thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines. The skin is kept smooth and moist by the addition of hyaluronic acid.
Beans also increase the synthesis of collagen and promote the growth of healthy skin. Your joints are healthier and your skin will be more toned. Hyaluronic acid is also important in the proliferation of healthy skin cells and in the migration of those cells to the outermost parts of the skin.
Ah, the benefits of berries never end!
