Apparently, according to The Independent, there's a region on your face called the 'danger triangle', which extends in a triangle shape from between your eyebrows, down to the sides of your mouth to meet in the middle where dramas happen if you attack it with the tips of your fingers.
According to reports, and even Dr. Oz, the blood vessels in that area of the face drain into the back of the brain to an area called the occipital lobe of the cerebral cortex (come at us year 11 psych!) which controls occular processing and activities (sight), that if damaged can lead to paralysis, visual impairment or death in extreme cases (and if you're epically unlucky).
Looks like there are three options, two of which you hope to god you don't have to do come the end of year formal:
1) pop it
2) don't pop it and rock it al natural
3) layer up that concealer, gurl! 💅
*Sigh* why can't life just be easy? 😪
