Blackheads is an inflammatory skin disease that effects the tiny pores thats cover the face, arms, back and chest as well as the oil glands attached to them. It is a yellowish or blackish bump or plug on the skin. It is caused by excess oils that have accumulated in the sebaceous gland ‘s duct. Blackheads are typically caused by excessive oil and makeup. Both blackheads and whiteheads are forms of acne. Under certain circumstances, cells that are close to the openings of the sebaceous glands block the openings. This causes a buildup of oil underneath the skin. Sometimes, the oil is trapped inside the hair follicle instead of flowing onto the skin. When this happens, bacteria develop in the follicle and leads to the infection we know as the pimple. Blackheads are almost impossible to prevent because of the ability of skin to constantly produce oil and regenerate skin cells rapidly. Using gentle water based cleansers and skin exfoliating products, along with avoiding bar soap, is one of the best methods to treating and preventing blackheads for recurring.
