What's popping? Probably Dr Pimple Popper...popping pimples!
Dr Sandra Lee aka Dr Pimple Popper is an internet sensation who is famous for, you guessed it, popping pimples on video. As much as her videos gross me out, she is also the reason behind me delaying my sleeping plans as I end up watching her videos all night long. Don't judge me, okay! It's not me, it's corona!
Sandra has dedicated her life to treating cysts, blackheads, pimples, and lipomas. If you look at her without knowing what she does, pimple popping will probably be the last thing to come to your mind. You know what would be the first? "How does she have such gorgeous skin?!" The LA-based dermatologist is giving us an insight into her favourite beauty essentials that she swears by. So, let's dive right in, shall we?
Sandra uses two different face washes. One is from her eponymous line and the other one is the CeraVe Hydrating Face Wash that's currently trending like mad on TikTok.
Unlike our usual choice for a sunscreen, which is either liquid or gel-based, Sandra prefers using a mineral powder sunscreen. Talking to a leading website, the doctor revealed that she always wears sunscreen, even if she's inside as the wrinkle-causing rays will enter your home no matter what. The reason she prefers using a mineral powder sunscreen is that it keeps her skin protected as well as reduces the appearance of oil on her face. Are you taking notes, ladies?
Just like most of us, she too has got spots on her face. As revealed by her, she relies on colour correction creams (CC creams) for the same which not only improve the appearance of the skin but also help treat discolouration and acne.
Maskne is a real thing now and, argh, we hate it! Sandra reveals how she has adjusted her beauty routine to suit the current situation - applying less makeup is one of the ways to go about. She says one should apply less makeup when wearing a face mask (which is the 'new normal' now) as it can prevent bacteria buildup in the pores, thus, reducing the chances of breakouts. This, coming from the Pimple Popper makes extra sense somehow, doesn't it?
Are you also obsessed with every gross video she puts out on the 'Gram? After this article, you will be, just like me and our Beauty Editor at POPxo! Sorry, not sorry.
