The Doctors: Glue To Remove Blackheads?
A popular blogger recently posted a video for her 12.2 million Instagram followers, which received nearly 70,000 likes. In the video, she puts glue on her nose and rips it off once it dries, claiming it helps her get rid of blackheads. Dermatologist Dr Sonia Batra said the technique is actually not a good idea, because that form of glue isn’t formulated to be used on the skin. The blogger made a point to say that the glue she uses is non-toxic, but Dr Batra argued that it could potentially be too adhesive and peel off the top layer of the skin. People could also be allergic to it, and for someone already using acne medication, it could be far more likely that the top layer of the skin could be ripped off.
Your best bet is to try to prevent the blackheads from forming in the first place. Use an old-fashioned wash cloth or other exfoliant to remove whatever got into the pores throughout the day. Blackheads are really just open, clogged pores that have turned black. There are also chemical exfoliants that help unclog pores. There are products available over the counter or by prescription that can help unclog your pores and clean your skin.
The Doctors: Robin Givens ‘God’s Not Dead 2’
The Doctors welcomed actress Robin Givens back to the show to share a sneak peek at her upcoming movie God’s Not Dead 2. She plays a principal in the movie, and explained that the first movie was even more successful than they expected. Melissa Joan Hart plays a teacher, who’s student mentions God among other historically significant figures, and it explodes into a debate about whether you should be able to talk about God and faith in school.
For Robin, personally, she grew up Catholic so faith is everything to her. She explained that because she grew up without a father, in many ways, God was the only father she truly knew. She joked that she goes to mass and yoga to get through life.

A University of Wisconsin Madison study found that participants who practiced mindfulness meditation or exercised at moderate intensity for eight weeks, suffered less from colds and the flu the next winter, compared to those who didn’t.
The Doctors: Cameron Diaz Makeup-Free Book Cover + Gorilla C-Section
Cameron Diaz chose a photo of herself without makeup for the cover of her new book “The Longevity Book.” On her Instagram page, Cameron Diaz wrote that she “[looks] forward to engaging us all in a new conversation about aging.”
The Doctors then shared a clip from the video that showed a baby gorilla who was born by a rare emergency cesarean section at Bristol Zoo Gardens in the U.K.. The gorilla weighed barely over two pounds and needed help breathing. The baby girl is receiving around-the-clock care and isn’t yet on view for the public. A zoo rep said the baby’s mom was showing symptoms of potentially life-threatening preeclampsia, which is why vets had to act fast. The cesarean gorilla birth is one of only a small amount performed across the world.
