If only we have a dermatologist like dr. Pimple had popper when blackheads and pimples appeared in our teenage years. In her latest Instagram video, dr. Pimple Popper – also known as Certified Dermatologist and TLC Moderator Sandra Lee – a quick job with a large collection of blackheads on a man's face. "Look at everyone along his forehead," she says. "Let's just clean it up."
Unlike the average awkward teenager, Dr. Pimple Popper, however, is their reliable comedone extractor to safely squeeze the blackheads, reducing the risk of irritation and inflammation. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes and the man's complexion is almost blackhead-free if Dr. Lee has finished her work.
While blackheads are often mistakenly associated with "dirty" skin, according to MedicalNewsToday, the color is actually created by oxidation. Sebum and dead skin cells block the pores of the skin, and when they are exposed to oxygen for long enough, they become dark. Blackheads are also very common and affect 50 million people in the US alone, according to MNT. If you are dealing with them yourself, you will resist the urge to squeeze and instead look for a gentle cleanser that you can apply. Just give it some time.
