Blackheads are small bumps that appear on your skin due to clogged hair follicles. These bumps are called blackheads because the surface looks dark or black. Blackheads are a mild type of acne that usually form on the face, but they can also appear on the following body parts:back.
Normally, hair grows from hair follicles in the pores, and the sebum-producing sebaceous glands lie underneath. When these pores are plugged, the dead skin cells in the open pore react with oxygen in the air and turn black, forming a blackhead.
These tiny acne outbreaks are usually caused due to over secretion of oil, pollution, sun exposure, eating habits and lifestyle factors.
We bring you these very easy homemade face packs to easily remove blackheads and keep the skin glowing.
