What a Week in the Life of the Internet's Favorite Pimple Popper Looks Like From Home
Rewind back one month, nine days, and approximately 16 hours, before Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive stay-home order in the state of California, and you might consider Sandra Lee, MD — the internet phenomenon widely known as Dr. Pimple Popper — one of the busiest dermatologists on the face of the planet.
Between creating those explosive, can't-help-but-watch extraction videos for YouTube, hosting a hit series on TLC, and formulating her product line SLMD Skincare, she also shares a private practice with her husband and has two teenage kids at home (and we haven't even mentioned her cats). Free time, at least then, was in shorter supply. "I live day by day, and I can't look too far ahead because there are too many things going on," Dr. Lee once told us.
So what does a day look like, you wonder, with shelter-in-place mandates thrown into the orbit? Turns out, there's a lot more taking in the clear mountain air, family time, and — because this is Dr. Pimple Popper we're talking about — some business as usual, too. "I'm getting creative, let's just say that," she said — and the proof is in the breakdown of her schedule by the hour, ahead.
