Blackheads are formed when oil collects and hardens in the pores of the skin. Oily skin not only attracts the dirt but also continually sheds the dead cells. Dirt, oil, sweat and stale makeup tend to clog and block the pores. These pores are exposed to the dirt and air, hence, they turn black and are called blackheads.
Blackheads are small, dark spots (about the size of a pinhead) caused by a small plug in the opening of a follicle (pore).
Blackheads are so common, yet many of us do know what they are. We know even less about dealing with them. However, they can be controlled and even prevented by taking regular care of the skin.
Blackheads not only appear on the face, but on the back, chest and other areas that are rich in sebaceous glands.
Blackhead are caused by the overactivity of the oil producing glands of skin. The excess oil collects in the pores of the skin and hardens into plug. Since the pores are open, the tip of the clogged oil is exposed to the air. It oxidises and turns black. Hence, the name blackheads.
It is essential to keep the skin free of blackheads. Not only does it look unsightly, but can also lead to acne. The control of blackheads is one way of preventing acne.
Daily cleansing of the skin, with products that reduces surface oil and also keeps the pores free of blackheads, is absolutely essential. The use of specialized masks would also help. After cleansing and toning the skin, use a good quality moisturizer according to skin type. This protects the skin from the effects of pollutants.
Blackhead extraction is a professional job. Never pick at them or try to remove them yourself. Not only will you damage skin tissue, but cause the skin to get infected, resulting in an acne condition.
When you have blackheads wash the face quite often, say 4-5 times in a day, with water.
