Most of us have had enlarged pores or a crop of blackheads spring up at some time - not great to look at, we'll agree, and if you leave them, they will continue growing. So how do we get rid of them and stop them returning?
Have you come across Dr Pimple Popper
yet? An internet sensation, American dermatologist Dr Sandra Lee's performance pieces are really not for the squeamish and queasy-of-stomach. You've been warned!
But it's likely she'll have popped up like an over-ripe pimple on your screen at some point - she has over 2 million followers on Instagram (@drpimplepopper
), and over a billion views on her YouTube channel.
So why are we talking about her work? It's simple. Think of it as a cautionary tale about why you need to keep your pores clear so they don't develop blackheads. OK, okay! Maybe the monsters Dr. PP has to take down are a very extreme scenario - we’re talking years
of careful nurturing to create those, er, beauties - but don’t you want to have smooth skin, free of whiteheads and blackheads, and invisible pores?
