We’re going to drop a surprising fact on you: Pimples suck. Not only do they itch like crazy and hurt when touched, but add in the intense summer heat, plus a few layers of sweaty, crease-y makeup, and you’ve got a recipe for super-irritated, broken-out skin. But contrary to what you might think, aggressively treating your blemishes with a zillion spot treatments and acne creams can actually lead to more zits. Yup—the more you dry out and irritate your skin, the more your skin overproduces oil to compensate, leading to clogged pores, blackheads, and pimples. Fun, right?
