Girl Popping ZitThere is nothing worse than waking up in the morning and being greeted by a massive pimple that has taken up residence on your chin. Popping it will make things worse (though you still really want to) and no matter how much concealer you use, you will not be able to completely cover it up–unless you resort to using Miley Cyrus’ genius pimple-hiding hack. Instead of focusing on concealing the zit, you should focus on treating the pimple, and use products that help prevent breakouts.
