If you worship at the altar of Dr Pimple Popper, we’re about to make your day.
But if you’re remotely squeamish, heed our warning: you may want to stop reading now.
Back to the blackheads: Allure discovered that Reddit users have been having a field day over a certain video that shows exactly what happens when you rip off a pore strip. Hint: it’s not at all pretty.
The video has had over two million views since it was posted last year. Are you ready for this? We hope so…
Who knew we had so much sebum in our skin?!
If the last five minutes have put you in the mood for some blackhead removal of your own (*frantically raises hands*), we suggest seeking professional help. Extraction facials are the way to go, during which your skin therapist will manually extract the gunk from blemishes and blackheads, with the help of hot steam and purpose-designed, sanitised tools.
Terrified by the mere thought? Try the below at-home skin saviours instead.
