You know you're a parent when you have baby spit up down the back of your shirt and you go to work anyway. You know you're a parent when you spend seven hours in your car and never leave the city limits. You know you're a parent when you've bought poster board in your pajamas at 11pm on a Sunday night. But you really know you are a parent when you are asked, "How do you pop a pimple"

when done properly, popping a pimple can actually be beneficial to the healing process. Reserve this technique only for pimples that are absolutely begging to be popped—all the way at the surface and white. After a shower is best, when the skin is supple.

I was blessed as a teenager to not have too tough of a time with zits so I don't know that much about pimple popping. I know they are hard to resist when they plump up nice and proud and beg to be exploded all over your mirror. So what advice do you give? What advice did you get? What products have worked for you?
