One of the most common skin conditions are blackheads which are caused by poor diet, oily skin, clogged glands or pores and oily hair. These black dots give unhealthy look of the skin. Blackheads usually appear on the face, but also on the back due to the fact that these areas have many sweat glands.
Once the pores become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells, blackheads are formed.
According to dermatologists, the difference between blackhead and whitehead is whether the pore is open or closed. At cases when the pore is open, the excess of sebum or skin cells oxidizes and oxygen turns into black, which is known as blackhead.
It is important to mention that blackheads are not caused by dirt. Therefore, in order to eliminate the boring blackheads, scrubbing is not good option.
