The reason why it’s so damn satisfying to pop a pimple
An expert has determined why humans are slightly obsessed with popping pimples.
Love them or hate them (ok nobody really loves them) pimples are a part of life. It’s common knowledge that you should never pop a pimple but sometimes it’s just to damn hard to resist.
Well now we have a reason as to why it’s so damn satisfying to pop a pimple....
Nicole Karacinski, a mental health nurse has explained to Racked that popping a pimple brings so much satisfaction because of our hormones.
“Releasing dopamine is what is truly the neurobiological basis of habit. We do it, we feel good.”
It’s a simple as that, our brains tell us to pop pimples simply because it feels good. Nicole says that even when people don’t have a pimple to pop they satisfy this urge by watching one of the countless pimple popping videos on YouTube.
