Prefer a Gel? Try This Alternative to Popped Pimple Cream;
A variation on the cream is the Clean and Clear Advantage Popped Pimple Relief Gel Pen. This works in the same way as the drying paste, but is really handy for pimple relief on the go; you can carry it in your purse (it is just like a pen, so slim enough to put inside even the smallest clutch) and use it during the day if you start to get a pimple under skin.
The gel creates a clear film over the affected area, meaning it is not noticeable to others (which for me, gives it an advantage over the paste for daytime use). The best way to apply it is to use a face wipe or a little cleanser to remove any makeup from the spot, then dab a little of the gel on the surface. Don’t use too much, as it will have a drying effect on the skin.
Most dermatologists will not recommend popping a pimple yourself, as this can cause more damage to the delicate skin and even lead to scarring. However, Clean and Clear popped pimple cream is a good way to treat the soreness and minimise any chance of infection.
