Haven’t we all been told throughout our lives that popping pimples is bad and it’s going to leave a nasty mark behind? Isn’t it impossible to keep calm when you have that annoying little zit on your face or a dried-up little lump on your arm or leg that you just want to get rid of? And last but not the least, don’t you wish to be Dr Sandra Lee for a day and pop your own pimples out? Well, get ready for all your dreams to come true as Dr Pimple Popper aka Dr Sandra Lee has come up with a way where you can pop your own zits using a self-extractor called comedone extractor by her brand SLMD skincare.

Dr Lee took to instagram to show the use of the extractor and how you can do it yourself. She wrote, “Go ahead and slide right out. Get your OWN comedone extractor at!”


Fans of the doctor wondered what the limitations of self-extracting is as they wrote, “Something that like this, should a doctor remove it bc it had to be cut? Or is this a diy thing? I’m wondering what the limits are for using the extractor at home. Thanks!” Another wondered if tweezers would work better as they wrote, “Am I the only one who wonders if tweezers would work better on these??” and “I hate the comedone extractor. Taking that out with tweezers would be soooo much more satisfying.”

Dr Lee’s skincare line called SLMD skincare has a wide range of products and there is no doubt that people have been crazy about it. She has managed to find shelf space for her products in big retail houses like Target. At the same time, she sells them on her official site and often advertises them on her social media page. She also posts about other brands on her social media so keep an eye out on her Instagram handle for skin-related quick tips and fixes and product recommendations. 


Earlier she posted on her Instagram page before and after pictures of a happy customer who got results in just 4 weeks of using her products and was able to reduce spots on her face. Dr Lee captioned the image writing, “RESULTS after only 4 weeks of using my @slmdskincare Dark Spot Fix! As a dermatologist, I know that the dark spots that form due to acne, melasma, and sun exposure can seem like the hardest to fade away.”

She continued, “Naturally, I wanted to create a product that people looking to improve their own dark spots could use at home.. This is why I formulated Dark Spot Fix with Hydroquinone (the gold standard ingredient for skin lightening), Salicylic and Kojic Acid. All three of these ingredients work to visually improve the appearance of dark spots and reveal a more radiant, even-looking complexion. Link in bio to shop it!”


On the upcoming episode of TLC’s ‘Dr Pimple Popper’ we will be introduced to three different patients with three unique and very different skin conditions. One has almost four potato-like lumps on his scalp, another has prominent black spots all over her body and the third has red grainy lumps all over his face. It would be fun to see Dr Lee helping her patients get rid of all their skin related worries at the same time enlightening viewers about different kinds of dermatology related issues. "Three wonderful patients, three different derm diagnoses, one BRAND NEW EPISODE of Dr Pimple Popper on @tlc MONDAY 9/8c. Do you have any guesses as to the diagnoses?!" Dr Lee posted images on her social media with the caption.
