Healthy and glowing skin is all that a woman wants!
But maintaining healthy skin is not an easy task. Our skin meets with pollution, dirt, chemical, germs and cosmetics everyday-all of which lead to dull, dry,pimple-prone and blackheads prone skin. While we have already talked of pimple removal in the previous article, here we will be talking about Blackheads.
So what exactly is Blackheads?
Blackheads are little plugs which are embedded into the pores of the skin. They can also be defined as ugly-looking dead skin spots filled with sebum and corneocytes.
Once the oil and dead cells get trapped within pores, dead skin cells accumulate on the open pores of the skin. With time, the clogged material inside these pores oxidizes and gives a dirty black spot like the look on the skin. Sometimes these blackheads get irritated(usually when we touch them or squeeze them) and hence there is a risk of acne, discoloration and open pores in the skin.
Some of the known causes of Blackheads are as follows-
- Hormonal changes
- Oily Skin
- Excessive sweating
