Does popping pimples help anything?

I have constant acne accross my face, neck and back. It's pretty bad at times. It probably doesn't help that i often pop pimples and it leaves a red mark. What i want to know is if popping them helps them not appear in the future or if i'm just wasting time? TIA

Popping them makes it worse!

Each time you pop a pimple, you are spreading bacteria under your skin, clogging up different pores and starting the process over, making it worse each time you do it.

The best thing to do is let them dry out on their own. Use a Benzoil peroxide cleanser for your body on your back - and one made for your face on your face...and use it religiously every day. You can find both face and body washes with this product (made for acne) in most supermarkets, Walmart and drug stores.
