Here are some things you should know about me: I’ve had acne since middle school and I’m a picker. That means I like to scratch, pop, pick and squeeze any foreign madness that pops up on my skin. I know it sounds gross, but nothing is safe -blackheads, whiteheads, pimples – nothing will stop me from going to war. And for that reason, I have blemishes. Being a woman of color, the spots on my brown skin turn black (well a darker brown). Some of them go away, while others last for years.
If you’re like me and just can’t stop picking at your face, here are some ways to get rid of pimples without leaving any type of scar.
