Dubai: A lot of people out there are all too familiar with the word ‘blackheads.’ They concentrate on the oily areas of the skin, such as the forehead, the nose, and the chin. The skin cells from these parts do not get adequately shed and are entrapped in the oils or sebum to be precise, and clog the pores in the skin. This plug hardens, and its exposed part gets oxidized and takes on black color.
The ‘whiteheads‘ or the pimple has, on the contrary, a microscopic opening to the skin. Reflecting these differences are medical terms for blackheads and whiteheads — open comedones and closed comedones (singular comedo), respectively. Watch the following video to permanently get rid of blackheads and whiteheads with a home remedy.
Dermatologist-Recommended Ways to Get Rid of Blackheads and Whiteheads
Causes of Blackheads and Whiteheads: The popular belief about the cause of blackheads is that they are brought about by being unhygienic. This comes as a great offense to people who are continually vexed by this problem. And in my opinion, anyone who is bothered enough to complain would not be slacking off, in the very least to wash their face.
Here is a revelation. It is true that exfoliation two to three times a week helps to ward off this nuisance, but excessive scrubbing or the use of a harsh cloth can further disrupt the shedding of skin cells and cause the skin to dry out. In dry skin, oil production will increase as compensation, making one more prone to blackheads.
