Blackheads are a form of acne that occur when a pore becomes clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Zit-popping videos, also known as "extraction videos," feature people removing blackheads from their skin using various tools. These videos are popular on social media, but dermatologists warn against attempting to remove blackheads at home, as it can cause damage to the skin and lead to further breakouts. If you want to remove blackheads, it's best to consult a dermatologist or esthetician who can safely and effectively remove them.
