Obsessed with squeezing those nasty pimples out of your face whenever you see a nasty spot that shouldn't be there?!

Don't worry you are not alone, it's an obsession we hate to love but we didn't realise the circumstances of squeezing those nasty spots from your face could be so severe. 

There is such a thing on your face that dermatologists call "The Danger Triangle" and according to The Independent it can be potentially be a deadly act. 

What is it exactly?

"It's an area that covers part of the eyes, the bridge of your nose, the corners of your mouth and upper lip, and if exposed to infection it could cause serious consequences."

"Blood vessels in this area drain to the back of your head and are a direct line to your brain - this means that any infections that develop in this area could go directly to the nerve centre. While it is incredibly rare, if an infection was to develop it could lead to vision loss, permanent paralysis or even death."

WOAH! Talk about scary stuff, we will literally be staying right away from the danger zone from now on...
