Videos of pimple popping and ear wax cleansing become a gold mine for barbershops and spa salons. 

Welcome to Vietnam Untold. Today, we delve into the intriguing world of spa salons and barbershops in Vietnam, where content creators are finding success by posting video clips of pimple popping and ear wax cleansing on YouTube for lucrative incomes. 

When it comes to Vietnam, you may think of Pho, banh mi, or coffee. But now, it’s videos of pimple popping and ear wax removal on YouTube. These videos have become the main export from spa salons and barbershops.

Firstly, the demand for these videos is immense, as people thoroughly enjoy watching the satisfying removal of pimples and ear wax for various reasons. Witnessing the extraction of something unwanted from the body provides a sense of satisfaction and relief. It can be cathartic and impart a feeling of cleanliness. Moreover, these videos offer a fascinating glimpse into the intricacies of the human body and its processes. The detailed procedures and visual stimulation can be captivating to many viewers.

These videos can generate a substantial passive income for content creators, just like Dr. Sandra Lee, famously known as Dr. Pimple Popper. With 7.5 million subscribers and nearly 5 billion views, she has amassed a significant fortune. In the past, she earned around $100,000 a month from 2014 to 2016. However, the founder of a pimple-popping YouTube channel experienced a setback when her content was deemed “too graphic” to monetize, resulting in the loss of a six-figure monthly income.

Now, Dr. Pimple Popper faces stiff competition from Vietnam, specifically from spa salons offering pimple popping services and other skincare treatments. These salon owners upload hundreds of highly satisfying videos each day, generating hundreds of thousands of views with the goal of monetization.

So, why is this service particularly popular in Vietnam, especially in the southern region? Several factors contribute to the development of pimples, especially among men in Vietnam.

The hot and humid climate prevalent in the country leads to increased sweat production. When combined with excess sebum and bacteria, this can clog pores and result in breakouts. Additionally, air pollution poses a significant concern in urban areas. Pollutants settle on the skin, mixing with sebum and causing inflammation and acne. Inadequate cleansing practices, such as using harsh or unsuitable products, can disrupt the skin’s natural balance, leading to irritation and acne.

In Vietnam, it is customary for men to request ear wax cleansing at barbershops. This practice stems from cultural traditions and the belief that ear hygiene is crucial for overall well-being. Barbers in Vietnam are skilled in providing this service, using tools like small spoons or ear picks to gently remove excess wax from the ear canal.

Some individuals, particularly men, may struggle with properly caring for their pimples and seek professional assistance at spas or beauty salons for pimple popping. Turning to professionals allows them to receive expert guidance and treatment in a controlled environment. Additionally, having someone else handle the pimple can alleviate the discomfort or anxiety associated with self-treatment.

Unfortunately, it is concerning that some barbershops and beauty salons in Vietnam may exploit their customers by recording their services for YouTube monetization purposes. This unethical behavior compromises the trust and privacy of customers for personal gain. Recording without proper consent violates the rights and dignity of individuals seeking grooming or beauty services.

Indeed, highly-watched videos like pimple popping and ear wax removal have the potential to be monetized by content creators on YouTube. When a video garners a significant number of views and attracts advertisers, creators can monetize their content and generate income based on factors like ad impressions, engagement, and viewer demographics.

However, YouTube’s policies restrict videos that depict excessive blood, fluids, or graphic content related to pimple popping. The platform has established community guidelines to maintain a safe and appropriate environment for all users.

To comply with YouTube’s policy, beauty salons have to carefully edit their videos, employing tactics such as blending footage of pimple popping with other content to create new videos for maximum views in multi channels while minimizing the risk of their channels being flagged or suspended.

It’s worth noting that only pimple popping has been restricted, while ear wax removal still has fewer restrictions, leaving more opportunities for content creators.

At the moment, spa salons and barbershops have found gold mines as additional sources of revenue through the videos of pimple popping and ear wax removal posted on YouTube for people around the world to enjoy.

Thank you very much for watching.
