Something is rotten in the state of the Internet, and it's probably your obsession with gross Instagram accounts. Yes, I'm calling you out right now. You think other people don't know about all those pimple popping accounts you follow? The photos of poorly done taxidermy you liked at 3 a.m.? The teeth cleaning videos you watch in lieu of actually cleaning your teeth? Trust me. You're not as subtle as you think. (Mostly because other users can see who you follow on Instagram.)
The good news is that plenty of other people share these twisted interests, even if they might not admit it polite company. The Instagram account of Dr. Sandra Lee, whom you may otherwise know as Dr. Pimple Popper, has more two and a half million followers, and that's just the tip (head?) of the iceberg. As the dermatologist's videos have exploded in popularity faster than the pimples she pops, other people have followed suit with their own gross-yet-appealing accounts. Some would say that videos of blackhead extractions and ingrown hair removals are more gag-worthy than satisfying, but to each their own and all that jazz.
If you count yourself among the ranks of the ickiness obsessed, you may wonder what your favorite gross Instagram account says about your own state of mind. Here is the answer.
