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.
