We're not really sure how things have gotten this out of hand, but here we are. The year is 2017 and if one thing is certain, it's that people freakin' love pimple popping videos. Blackheads, cysts, milia, ingrown hairs, abscesses — the pus-filled list is pretty much endless and despite all of our sincere reservations, we thought it was time to give you degenerates what you've been asking for. Below you're going to find a definitive guide to all the places on the internet where you can indulge in your oozing, squirting, dead skin cell extracting fantasies.
We promise none of this is intended to sound dirty...it's just, erm, how can it not? It's pretty twisted stuff. No judgement, of course — we suppose it's better to watch pimple popping videos than, oh, we don't know, clown orgies? Yep, clown orgies would be way worse.
Dr. Pimple Popper
To put it in terms y'all might understand, Dr. Pimple Popper is basically The OG of this whole pimple popping trend. In fact, we're pretty sure she even coined the term, "Popaholics". Pretty cute, huh? Well, her real name is Dr. Sandra Lee and she's a board-certified dermatologist, skin cancer surgeon, and cosmetic surgeon, who is a regular guest dermatologist on various TV shows. At this point, Lee has almost 4 million subscribers on YouTube and 2.6 million on Instagram. Don't be fooled though, she's not just running these accounts to post gross stuff. Sure, she does that too, but she's also educating her viewers on the different medical terms, procedures, etc. It's sort of like being in a class...a really, really foul class, that is.
Funny enough, Tweezist JUST came onto the scene about a week or two ago. While you won't be finding any pimple popping videos on this account, you can indulge in countless videos of ingrown hair removals. In just a few days, the Tweezist account has grown to a whopping 120,000 followers on Instagram. Looks like people really enjoy watching ingrown hairs slowly being removed from human flesh — attractive stuff! The best part? This account zooms in to give the viewer an up close and personal view.
We don't care what anyone says, blackhead extractions are arguably the best extractions of all. Why? Well, blackheads are generally just dead skin cells and dirt that have oxidized under your pores (that's why they're black) so they don't really ooze or pop. They're like the least gross of all the gross crap on here — but still equally as satisfying to watch. The Mr. Blackhead Instagram account isn't as popular as the others listed, but it definitely has a wide variety of videos that'll tickle your gross fancy.
Unlike Dr. Pimple Popper, this Pimple Poppers Instagram account is mostly user submissions, meaning people send in their own "homegrown" videos and whoever runs the account posts them. That tends to make these videos especially gnarly because there's no medical setting to lessen the pop. Yep, it's just a bunch of pus splattering all over people's cars, bathroom mirrors, family members, etc. It's pretty nasty, but also worth a follow if you're into that sort of thing.
That about sums it up, Popaholics! Follow these 4 accounts on Instagram and you'll be set for a lifetime. Reminder: watching these videos does NOT make you a medical professional and we highly recommend against performing any of these procedures on yourself or other people.
