7 Things You Should Never Do to Acne-Prone Skin, According to Dr. Pimple Popper

To say that I've never scrolled through countless videos of Dr. Pimple Popper squeezing blackheads and draining giant cysts on YouTube would be a complete lie. There's something so satisfying about seeing an uncanny amount of gunk get extracted from the human body before your eyes. It's a five-minute cinematic experience of sorts: suspense, climax, a happy ending. My passion for zit removal may be alarming, but it's a badge I wear with pride. So you can only imagine my excitement when I got the opportunity to talk to the anti-pimple queen herself, Dr. Sandra Lee, and ask her the most important question for acneic skin: What should we never, ever do to those pesky red bumps on our faces? Her answers were eye-opening, in the same way they widen when we see a foot-long trail of pus exit a single pore (ew, I just grossed myself out a little there). To learn the skin mistakes even Dr. Lee winces at, keep scrolling!
