So I’ve had this thought in my head for a while and google has answered me so…
Say I had big, prominent pimples over my face that could be ready to pop, and as an attempt to get rid of them I put on a peel-able charcoal face mask or something similar. Other than ripping the head off the pimples and probably causing pain, what other things would happen? What would the consequences be to the skin/face?

It’s definitely something I wouldn’t want to ever try but if some miracle happened that meant you can put a mask on and clear skin forever I’d do it.

Poking and prodding at spots in all its forms, although incredibly tempting, is bad news. I reckon it leads to much of the scarring that remains after the acne has gone. I would advise against any over the shelf remedies if you have genuine difficult acne, ie not just the odd spot or two, and put pressure on to see a dermatologist if what the GP reccomends is not delivering.
