Pimple popping videos are so gross, yet somehow, they're also satisfying. Maybe it's because they fly in the face of the longstanding rule that we're not even supposed to touch acne, let alone poke at zits until they explode.
Granted, it's a valid rule — while it may be one of the hardest things to resist, picking our zits isn’t worth the scars and possible infections that it can lead to. Plus, covering up a crusty, erupted breakout is much more difficult than you might think.
Here, we've rounded up the 15 best pimple-popping. Sit back, relax, and get ready to squirm in your seat.
1. Pop Goes the Sebaceous Cyst
This one looks like it hurts. Though technically not a pimple, we couldn't resist including this cyst.
2. Tons of Whitehead Extractions
The one and only Dr. Lee extracts countless whiteheads from a patient's cheeks.
3. A Jungle of Zits
Eleven minutes of eyebrow extractions for your pimple-popping pleasure.
4. Don't Mind the Pimple Inside My Ear
A pimple inside the ear? This is one of the weirdest places to get a zit.
5. Or the Pimple on My Earlobe
We can't decide what's more cringeworthy: a pimple on the inside or the ear or a cyst on the earlobe?
6. Extremely Magnified Blackhead Removal
Another pimple popping video that most definitely is not for the faint of heart.
7. Massive Zit Popping on Knee
A man pops the zit on his knee (which shoots out pus in spectacular fashion). You can hear his significant other's shock as she blurts out: "Oh my God, this thing is like a volcano."
8. Little Squirt
As Dr. Lee squeezes, the pus just keeps coming and coming (and we're into the background music).
9. Projectile Pimple
That definitely got some air. When a pimple is this explosive, you have to share the news with your family apparently.
10. A Volcanic Eruption
How is this even real? It looks ridiculously painful, and the oozing just won't stop.
11. Best Whitehead in History
This is literally the most up close and personal we've ever been with a whitehead (even our own).
12. So Long and Stringy
Apparently, pimples in the ear region are more common than not! The pus keeps coming out, but at least it doesn't hurt. Also, we love this girl's nail color.
13. Bumps Galore
We can't look away from these small but mighty extractions.
14. Cheek Extractions—No Big Deal
This girl is so chill as the dermatologist expresses all the bacteria from her cheeks.
15. Eyebrow Pop through a Bunch of Hair
This man's face gets a major squeeze as pus emerges from his eyebrow.
16. The Never-Ending Whitehead
This insanely long whitehead looks more like a spaghetti noodle. What in the world?!
18. All the Oozing
This massive blemish won't stop oozing, and we can't look away.
19. Special Effects Pimple
This "pimple" is made entirely from special effects makeup — and just as gross as the real thing!
20. Slice n' Explode
This cyst bursts as soon as the dermatologist cuts the skin. Yikes!
21. 55-Year-Old Blackhead
This massive blackhead has been brewing for nearly six decades and feels like "a petrified rock."
22. Up Close and Personal with a Pore Strip
True, this isn't a "pop" in the traditional sense, but it's just as satisfying.
23. Insane Blackhead Extractions
There's no end in sight with these extractions that keep oozing out.
