Why, you ask? Because BuzzFeed has covered tons of gross AF pimple pops over the years, and with some of the best ones now in one place (below), it's not like you're going to be able to look away, anyway. So, without further ado, here are our grossest, but oh-so-satisfying pimple popping posts. Oh, and by the way, you actually should not pop your pimples. Definitely see a dermatologist for all skin care issues, including dealing with those ~blemishes~.

Aged like a fine wine, some might say. Others might consider this a long-term relationship. Personally, I might just pass out from the sight of it. Take a look at your own risk in This Is What Popping A 20-Year-Old Zit Looks Like.

7. For when popping isn't satisfying enough and you need a whole fucking STREAM of pus to come out, too. / Via

Like it's legit a waterfall of pus and blood, y'all. Where does it all come from? How did one let it get that bad?! Why did they do this without a doctor's supervision? Sooo many questions. Anyway, check it out for yourself in This Woman Popped What Appears To Be A Cyst And Created A Stream Of Pus. (OK, we know this isn't a pimple, but it was too good to not include.)


8. For when you want to see what a typical day in the life is like for the Dr. Pimple Popper. / Via

AKA our hero Dr. Sandra Lee, a dermatologist in Southern California. You've probably seen her suuuper-gross Instagram posts, but if you want to see her in action, check out A Day In The Life Of Dr. Pimple Popper.

10. For when you want to ~elevate~ your pimple-popping experience by taking a close-up view.

The only thing that's better than seeing a pimple being popped is seeing it being popped up close. SO CLOSE THAT IT'S LIKE IT'S LITERALLY IN YOUR FACE (sorry). Well, if that sounds like your cuppa tea, proceed to These Magnified Pimple Popping Videos Are Either Your Most Beautiful Dream Or Your Scariest Nightmare.


13. For when you're so damn tired of the GIFs and just want some good, wholesome pimple-popping videos. / Via

OK, maybe they're not so wholesome. And if we're being honest, you probably shouldn't try any of this at home, either. But alas, here we are. So it's no surprise that there's a whole freakin' thread on Reddit that's dedicated to pimple-popping.
