A Week in the Life of the Internet's Favorite Pimple Popper
It's basic beauty math: 50 million acne sufferers plus one brilliant dermatologist plus hundreds of explosive, can't-help-but-watch excavation videos equals Dr. Pimple Popper, an internet phenomenon with a whopping 4.5 million YouTube subscribers. Add in a hit TV series, two kids, and a skincare line called SLMD, and you're looking at the life of Dr. Sandra Lee, MD — who, as you might imagine, is busy as hell.
"Normally I feel like I have four jobs: a full-time, practicing board-certified dermatologist with a private practice I share with my husband, wife and mom to teenage kids, YouTuber and social media personality, and now host of my own TV show on TLC," she told POPSUGAR. "I live day-by-day, and I can't look too far ahead because there are too many things going on."
It makes sense as to why when you see the breakdown of her schedule by the hour, ahead. Not that the hustle is a bad thing: "Being busy makes me feel happy and fulfilled," Dr. Lee said. "But if I go all Michelle Phan on you, you can find me in Switzerland." (Put down your extraction tools, Popaholics. That was a joke.)
