Whiteheads

I'm wondering what you guys think. Is it more damaging to the skin to let a whitehead do its thing, let it get bigger, and just wait until it naturally opens up or to open it up yourself to get the stuff out?

Re: Whiteheads

I personally poke them with a steralized needle before they get too big and let them drain on their own. I think that's minimal damage...
