Comedones – which are your typical blackheads and whiteheads – indicate a clogged pore and in some situations can be squeezed without doing any long-term harm.

This is the same for pustules – a bubble-like white, raised bump or a fiery red one – which can be popped carefully.

However cysts, which are usually painful and stubborn, should only be removed by a professional and may even require prescription medication.

Once you’ve figured out which zit you’re dealing with you should wash your hands and face with warm water and a cleanser.

Gently hold a warm washcloth against the surface of the skin to help open up the pores. Very white pimples while likely burst during this process.

If they don’t come out immediately use a comedone extractor – which looks like a pair of tweezers with a circular head – to press down around the circumference of the pimple.

How to expertly pop a pimple according to Dr Sandra Lee:

1. Identify what kind of pimple you have out of comedone, pustule or cyst

2. If it’s one of the first two, wash your face and hands with warm water and apply a warm washcloth

3. If the pimple doesn’t pop immediately, give it a little squeeze

4. Stop when you see blood

5. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol

Make sure you stop pushing when you see a hint of blood, Dr Lee recommends.  

Once the bacteria has been eliminated it’s time to apply a cold washcloth straight away, this will target the redness.

Then, apply rubbing alcohol or a product with salicylic acid in it to treat the remaining lump.  

When it comes to adult acne, Dr Lee previously told FEMAIL that people should see a dermatologist as the problem is usually hormonal and/or genetic.

‘It’s good to have a family dermatologist like you would an electrician or plumber,’ Dr Lee said.

‘The thing with adult acne is that it is hormonal and that’s why more women experience it than men and it happens often during our cycle.

‘There are triggers though and stress can exacerbate it. Diet also plays a small role but not so much – I always say that pizza won’t cause you to get pimples unless you pick the pizza up and rub it all over your face.’

Dr Lee also said that drinking more water or following a vegan or gluten-free diet will most likely make no difference to those who struggle with adult acne.

‘Yes it’s good to drink water and be hydrated but once you are hydrated, drinking more is only going to lead to more bathroom trips,’ she said.

Products Dr Lee recommends are topical anti-inflammatory creams like ACZONE and creams with benzyl peroxide in them which fight against the bacteria that cause the red bumps.
