Black Heads and White Heads

In a black head, the part of the pore at the surface of the skin is stretched and open. The black color is dead skin cells, bacteria and oil stuck down in the pore (yuck!). As the top part of the pore is open, the scientific term for a blackhead is an open comedone

A white head is also a clogged pore, except, unlike a black head, the top of the pore is not stretched open and exposing the clogged portion. The pore is still clogged, but the surface of the pore is closed so dermatologists call this a closed comedone.

How to care for it?

Right choice of skincare products can be effective in treating blackheads and whiteheads. They help to open the pores, allowing the bacteria and dirt to be washed out before acne forms. (DEEP PORE CLEANSER)

Look for products that contain AHA or Salicylic acid. Both dry out acne and remove oil and dead skin cells that are also clogging your pores. (NIGHT GEL, TONER) Repeatedly squeezing will make the pores larger
