Admit it! You love watching pimple popping videos. There’s something so satisfying about it. Gross, but satisfying.
So have you ever wondered what’s in a zit? What exactly is that goo that comes squishing out?
We call it pus, but really it’s a big ole mixture of disgusting. We’re talking bacteria, dead skin cells, white blood cells, and sebum.
If you have excess sebum, it can clog your pores making it a feasting ground for bacteria. Once the bacteria attack, your body plays defense sending white blood cells to the site cause the area to become inflamed. That inflammation becomes a zit.
Now, what’s worse than the infection…actually popping the zit. As much fun as it is, you’re just opening up a gateway for more bacteria to the already infected pore.
What did we learn here? Don’t pop your zits!
