Most of us know the pain of blackheads, and have failed to get rid of them, that it has eventually become a stubborn part of our skin that will not go away. Many people couldn't help but wonder if it has become permanent? This article will answer your questions about blackheads & guide you through the best products to use in order to blackheads.
Causes of Blackheads
Blackheads form when a hair follicle in the skin becomes clogged or plugged. Dead skin cells and excess oil collect in the follicle’s opening, which produces a bump. If the skin over the bump opens, the air exposure causes the plug to look black, thus forming a blackhead. It is thus crucial to clear your blackheads on regular bases, once a week ideally!
