Blackheads

What are Blackheads?

Blackheads are essentially pores that are clogged with dead skin cells and sebum. They look black because the pore is open and exposed to air, allowing oxidation of melanin inside the hair follicle. This gives a blackhead its characteristic dark color. Oily skin types are more likely to experience blackheads.

Treatments

Proper cleansing and exfoliation is a must to remove dead skin cells that clog pores and contribute to blackheads. There are many deep cleansing products which contain salicylic acid and glycolic acid. These ingredients called keratolytics help to loosen dead skin cells that plug up pores. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Blackheads

Blackheads aren’t pretty to look at, and some people have a significant number of them. Most people think these tiny black dots are a skin problem that only teenagers have, but adults get them too. Fortunately, there are effective treatments for this common skin condition.

What Causes Them?

Blackheads are essentially pores that are clogged with dead skin cells and sebum. Sebum is a sticky substance produced by sebaceous glands to help protect the skin from water loss and infection. They look black because the pore is open and exposed to air, allowing oxidation of melanin inside the hair follicle. This gives a blackhead its characteristic dark color.
